With a vision change the world, the well sought after speaker at conferences and seminars who speaks with passion and humor bringing real life stories to keep her audience captivated is also an On Air Personality. The Ambrose Ali University graduate, Ekpoma is a Certified Coach from the University of Cape Town, Graduate School of Business and currently a Performance Consultant at Dale Carnegie, Nigeria with My Trainer Certification.
For Naomi, she has always been a talker even as a little girl and is thankful that her parents especially her father did not allow anyone take that away from her because she was quite outspoken. “I started Public Speaking in 2009 but I only started practicing fully after my Public Speaking Master class with FelaDurotoye in 2012. That Master class totally changed my life and it is at the core of all I do today.” Narrating how she started out, she said, “Five months ago, I discovered an online social media platform that enabled me to connect with the world with just a click of a button. In four months I had built a following of over 2,000 followers and I was connecting to the most brilliant minds all around the world. In November 2015, I attended a Best Sellers Workshop and it was the first time I was experiencing the World of Writing. I grabbed all I could in that workshop and all I could see was Possibilities.
As a Stay at home mom nursing my baby, I wrote, edited and self-published my first book on Amazon titled ‘Socially Speaking -My Periscope Miracles and in two days we hit the Number four spot on the Amazon Best Sellers List. It seemed impossible that I could achieve so much in such a short time. Becoming a Best Selling Author has not just accelerated my growth but it has also greatly increased my sphere of Influence. It dawned on me that my story was inspiring others to believe the impossible and to not stop dreaming. All of a sudden, they realized if she can go from being a stay at home and just by using her mobile device and Internet modem, connect with a Global Audience…I can do it too.
“Through my website www.naomiosemedua.com, I currently Coach people on how they can ‘Go Live’…Become Visible and Relevant to a Global audience through Live Streaming. It is a life transforming Coaching Program to all who want to experience what it truly means to have the World just a click away.
“Live Streaming is becoming huge and one of the things I love about it, is the ability to connect with viewers in Real Time and get Instant Feedback. Global Brands are now leveraging on this Platform to connect with clients all over the World. It is simply Phenomenal and the possibilities are limitless of all one can achieve through live streaming. I am on a Mission to Impact my World Positively from Africa and I intend to carry many more on my journey. Watch Out World…No More Darkness coming out of Africa,” she declared.
On her growing up, Naomi recalled, “it was exciting for me, it was filled with so much adventure and travelling. I was born in Zaria and my parents moved to Delta State when I was a few months old. The early part of my teen years was spent in South East Asia, touring Asia and some parts of Europe remains a defining moment in my life till date. It changed my perspective about the world even as a young girl.” She had her primary education at Nana Primary School in Warri, major part of her high school education in Brunei Darussalam in South East Asia as the whole family had to move, when her father was transferred to work there. She has her High school education at Fieldcrest International High School in Ekete before proceeding to Ambrose Ali University, Ekpoma.
Speaking on those who have been positively influenced with the periscope TV platform, she said, “the list is endless of the number of people who are now using the platform of Periscope.tv to inspire their World. I also coach authors and Inspiring authors on how they can also become Amazon Best Sellers. In one week, I got my first Coaching client, and recently hit the number one spot on the Amazon Best Sellers list in two countries. Periscope.tv allows me to connect with the World Daily and I have a daily show called ‘Sparkle with Naomi’, focused on inspiring and motivating others to greatness. I am a People Builder; I call out the seeds of greatness already inside of you. As a Live stream Strategist, I am able to connect with over 5000 people and more daily through my social media platforms.
“Just recently I became the First Nigerian and just perhaps the First African to Trend on Periscope with over 10 million users globally. Periscope is a Game Changer for me. It has been a Platform of Discovery and Amazing Growth. My Life Values are, be authentic…Be You. I believe also that being compassionate allows you affect others greatly. Honesty and passion for all I do as well.
My Advice to young women? Allow nothing hold you back. Refuse to die full but empty all that you have been blessed with and make a difference positively in all that you do. Be the Change.
