Words that best describe Niyi: Visionary, Innovator, Introspective, and Inspiring.

Niyi Taiwo is an innovative, dynamic, and fun professional speaker on the central theme and topic of Respect. As a subject matter expert and a thought leader on Respect, he is the creator and research-based author of the EKTIMIS Brand and the EKTIMIS Respect Model - a framework and educational model that illustrates the concept and principles of respect in a visual format. He is the author of The Top Ten Laws of Respect collection of principles, as well as several books on the same topic - The Top Ten Laws of Respect book series. He is also the author of a collection of Respect Quotes. His landmark (analytical and empirical) studies on the topic of respect focuses on the aspect of respect that is invisible to the eye - that is, the part of respect, rooted in the human mind, that precedes a respectful (or dis-respectful) behaviour that we observe (the visible). These studies have led to the current body of works that have produced and continue to produce publications and writings (respect-focused articles) that simplify and demystify the seemingly complex topic of respect.

Niyi has delivered speaking programs in a variety of formats tailored to client needs - Keynote, Town-Hall Style, and Seminar Style.
