Doyin is a pretty great guy, but don't just take our word for it. Check out what some people who worked with him have to say.
"Doyin came to CSULA to talk about race and diversity, and he was a Rock Star! The students related extremely well to Doyin and his message. He has a gift of discussing such nuanced topics in a way that is informative and inspiring. Students were so energized by his talk that they had wonderfully thoughtful questions afterwards. I invited him to come back to speak to my students again, and I believe every university would benefit by having Doyin as a speaker. He is one of a kind!"
- Lollie Ragana, Professor at California State University, Los Angeles
"The only thing more compelling than Doyin's story is the way he tells it on stage. His unique blend of self-effacing exuberance is entertaining and inspiring, because you can tell that beneath his unassuming Everyman facade beats the heart of an ambitious, multi-talented man determined to be the best dad he can be."
- Doug French, CEO Dad 2.0 Summit
"Doyin graciously accepted an invite to be our keynote speaker at Iowa's annual Community Partnership for Protecting Children (CPPC) learning network in November 2017 and was amazing. His bio does not give this man justice! He is authentic, genuine, intelligent, and demonstrates the character of a gentleman that gives me hope for the future.
- Debra Franz, Juvenile Court Services, Iowa
"As a feminist and a dad, Doyin embodies modern fatherhood. I value his perspective, his willingness to take a stand, his thoughtful approach and of course, his trademark charm. His content in all forms is high quality and all around full of terrific."
- Samantha Ettus, best-selling author and keynote speaker
"Doyin gave a powerful perspective on fatherhood as the keynote speaker at our company’s Black History Month event. His early experiences from being blasted on social media (both positively and negatively) really helped shape the conversation around race/gender and what it really means to be a parent (father). Doyin took punches over the taboo topic that most people are too scared to discuss — namely, why do we celebrate fathers for doing their job? He especially honed on this phenomenon in the black community and gave his perspective. His presence provided a riveting Black History Month event."
- Asim Fareeduddin, VP at LexisNexis

- Kim Congdon, Chief People Officer, Fullscreen, Inc.

- Anthony Lewis, Leadership and Talent Development
"Doyin is always a pleasure to partner with. His infectious smile and calm demeanor would be welcomed in any business setting, but when combined with his integrity and professionalism, he truly stands out as a rarity among his peers. He is a role model and I'd love the opportunity to work with him again in the future."
- Paul Falcone, Human Resources Executive
"The world needs more men like Doyin! He is a powerful advocate for women and girls and modeling a version of fatherhood that we should all embrace and aspire to. He's also an incredible human being and am honored to call him a friend and colleague."
- Kelly Parisi, champion of women and girls
