I’ve been a professional speaker and trainer since 2009 when I started coaching graduate and undergraduate students on finding jobs and seeing them succeed. Since then I have spoken at festivals, non-profit evens, schools, and universities for the last 12 years. For all event types I am committed to adding value and supporting you on impacting culture. Your audience will be trained and transformed.



We will partner with you to co-create an event that will impact every attendee. Take the guess work out of interacting with audiences of various ages or stages in life. We are here to make your event great.


Once the event is booked with share with you our Program Questionnaire where we will get all of the information needed to customize an amazing presentation to transform your audience.


Once I step on the stage I will present a phenomenal, educational, and interactive message for your audience. My presentation will allow the audience to participate in their transformation.



Amazing Trainer

What makes me stand out is that I am a trainer and course creator. I created the Character Creation Academy to support learners on creating unique and impactful characters.

After the presentation, learners need to be mentored and encouraged along the journey. They need to be reminded of your events mission. That is where my programs and community come into play to support learners along the journey.

“Ekaette was a pleasure to work with. She was responsive, attentive, and patient. Our students enjoyed her show so much. Ekaette captivated our students and their families with her show that was full of interactive dancing and singing. Having her part of our student celebration was a great way to end the school year!

She was so good to work with, professional, and prompt. From the moment she was on campus, she was ready to work and engage with the kids. We highly recommend her and will definitely book her again.
