Peters has a very strong desire for growth through consistent learning and is also passionate about impacting and adding value to people through training, coaching and mentoring. She is committed to living an intentional life of service to God and humanity. Above all, she is a lover of God and a people person who loves to enjoy her life regardless of whatever is going on around her.

She believes that effective communication with your audiences is even more important than it has been in the past, given the volume of information we are consuming on all our different devices and various platforms. She says it’s all about ‘cutting through’ and being relevant to get messages across. “This is something marketers have been doing for years, but today customers, potential clients, business partners, and employees place great importance on being able to trust the messages we see.” Says Yemisi.

According to her, as consumers, we are not only searching for the information we need, we are looking for reassurance. Whether we are researching something we are going to buy, who we vote for, or information to inform our beliefs and opinions, we need to trust information that’s communicated by companies and its credibility.
