I have also won numerous professional awards such as:

In Greek mythology, Kleos means ‘Glory.’ My mission is to help people and organizations achieve glory on the battlefields of change.
To that end, I write on the following Change Accelerators: Leadership, Corporate Values, Change Measurement, Change Theory, Communication, Engagement and Training.
On occasion, I write about things that don’t fit neatly into one of these categories. For instance, as an MBA student, I frequently come across several nuggets of management wisdom. Hence, I created the segment on ‘MBA Nuggets’ to share these with you.
You can find out more on my Start Here page.
I am also in the process of releasing a book called ‘’A Practical Approach to Change Management’’. It presents the SIMPLER Change Methodology. In addition, it offers several useful tools, templates, illustrations and samples.
My goal is to create insightful, relevant content that you can put to work in your professional life. If you consider yourself an agent of change – someone who transforms people, organizations or societies – then this blog is for you.

My Professional Experience
Upon graduation, I undertook a one-year stint in the National Youth Service Corps where I was assigned to work in the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (E.F.C.C). While serving at the E.F.C.C, I developed an interest in corruption, its causes, effects and solutions. My interest led me to write a book in 2007 entitled ”Corruption and its effects on the Nigerian society”.
After E.F.C.C, I worked as an analyst at a top investment bank in Nigeria – FBN Capital. After this, I worked as a Finance & Performance Management analyst and a Talent & Organisation Performance consultant with the global management consulting firm of Accenture. From my 9 project experiences with Nigerian private and public institutions, I developed a keen interest in the potential of change management as a tool for bringing about transformation in Africa. My interest led me to obtain the Prosci Change Management certification, join the Association of Change Management Practitioners and and start this blog in 2o12.
Since then, I have worked as an independent Change Management consultant on 2 technology-implementation projects across West Africa. From my experience leading large-scale, complex multi-market change programmes involving multiple stakeholders and multiple geographies, I have developed a model for managing change called ”The SIMPLER Way.” The model is the basis for my second book, which I’m writing and which I hope to share on this blog.
Currently, I’m the Research Manager in the Centre for Research in Leadership and Ethics in Lagos Business School, where I am also studying for an Executive M.B.A. Specifically, I conduct research in Leadership and Change.
My Professional Membership
I have been a member of the Association of Change Management Practitioners (ACMP) since 2012. I’m an active member and have volunteered in several capacities.
In 2015, I represented Africa in defining the examination questions for the Certified Change Management Professional (C.C.M.P) credential. The Item Writing Workshop [insert link] held in Dubai. It was an exciting experience where I met several change management professionals from the Middle East and Africa. I also deepened my knowledge of the Standard for Change Management, which is published by the ACMP.
