Temiloluwa Awonbiogbon strongly believes that life can only truly be called life when everyone finds their place and fills it. He is a consummate public speaker, actor and writer with a bias for leadership, entrepreneurship, nation building and development. He is also an advocate of personal development as a success tool.

He was one of four finalists in Season 1 of the GTBank-sponsored Reality TV Show, 'The Debaters', unarguably Africa’s first oratory based Reality TV show, where he had the opportunity to contribute positively to the discourse on various matters of national and international significance before an audience of several million people across Africa and beyond.
His interests in public speaking include but are not limited to offering master of ceremonies services to clients both corporate and individuals, giving presentations at conferences, lectures, seminars and conventions; doing voice-over jobs for TV and radio commercials, anchoring TV programmes etc.
He has introduced foreign government officials, several former and serving members of the nation's National Assembly, state governors, serving cabinet ministers, other top government officials as well as countless corporate executives.
He enjoys reading novels, newspapers and magazines; writing poems, speeches and articles; singing and listening to music, acting and dancing in his spare time. His favourite personal saying is: ‘Whatever you do, give it your best shot as only the best is good enough’.
He maintains a personal blog at temiloluwa.com, which attracts a considerable following where he writes on a various number of issues and subjects.
