What Our Costumers Say About Us
“Toyinda led a 75-minute workshop session on working effectively with others for our group of young women. I appreciated how well her workshop was tailored to the needs of the participants and her ability to weave in the program’s tagline when delivering her content. Toyinda did an excellent job of integrating conceptual information with real life experiences. She strategically used her own personal journey to punctuate important concepts which made it easy for participants to relate to her. The young women responded so enthusiastically to Toyinda that they asked to take a picture with her at the end of the workshop. Overall, Mrs. Toy delivered an effective workshop and hit the mark with regards to helping our young women gain insight into their own abilities as well as learning strategies for working better with others.”
“Toyinda was a joy to have as our open meeting speaker! Her speech on leadership strategy and personal career endeavors was engaging, helpful, and insightful. We as a group were able to take away useful tips and tricks to apply to our own academic and career goals. It was inspiring to see a Purdue Graduate achieve the success that Toyinda has throughout her career!”
“Toyinda Wilson-Long is a clever and inventive presenter. She piloted the development and facilitation of a custom designed workshop for our employees at Fifth Third Bank. Toyinda guided me through a keen and discerning pre-planning meeting to understand the needs of our bankers before she designed the curriculum for the workshop entitled “Emotional Intelligence for the Banking Industry.” Her process was a calculated consideration of our needs, and it was evident by the positive outcome of the workshop. She uses theories, statistics, visual examples and engaging activities that assist us with identifying personal triggers, and understand how to personally use emotional intelligence to create successful outcomes in our banking roles.”
“In my role as Executive Director of Leadership Lafayette, I have the opportunity to work with amazing facilitators from throughout the country. I had the pleasure of seeing Toyinda facilitate Real Colors at Ivy Tech Community College and was truly impressed by the enthusiasm and positive energy she brings to the experience. Her background as a world class athlete and facilitator shines through as she inspires participants to learn more about themselves and explore how to better engage and collaborate with others.”
“Each of the students were totally engaged in the training and expressed that they learned something about themselves and others. It has been a week since the training and I am still overhearing spontaneous conversations about what students have noticed about their colors. Since it was a combination of groups, Toyinda used the Real Colors to talk about leadership skills rather than team building and that worked well for the combined group. Toyinda was approachable and knowledgeable and kept the group actively engaged for nearly 3 hours.”
