“Some people talk, Kwame speaks! Energy fills the room when Kwame holds the mic. He is an articulate and eloquent, yet powerful storyteller that commands the audience to be fully submerged in the story.  I have worked with Kwame for years and heard him speak countless times. To this day, I still stop what I’m doing during any event to give my full attention to his powerful words of positivity and hope. I’ve hired many talented speakers over the years and Kwame Osei tops that list with ease.”
