State of the Union Address 2022
IMMERSE COACHING COMPANY ❤️
1. IMMERSE Inner Circle Membership – It was a very special year for us within our premium women-only coaching membership, successfully running three full 90-Day Coaching Cycles, and launching a fourth cycle with current enrolments HERE. In 2022, we directly served over 80, 000+ members through paid membership, flagship programs, free courses and webinars, epic events and piping hot content.
We further strengthened our Transformational Coaching Model, to deliver overwhelm-free learning and goal achievement for our visionary women. Some of our breakthrough solutions included launching our Partners’ Network, expanding our Community of Support Coaches + Guest Mentors, and starting the Activation Learning Series (bite-size coaching insights on the go!)
Internally, at IMMERSE Coaching Company, we grew our Core DreamTeam to almost 30 members of staff, who are all #StunningColleagues living across 3 continents of the world. Our Conscious Changemaking Initiative (social welfare and outreaches to vulnerable, low income communities hosted by our members) delivered 15 impact projects to thousands of beneficiaries, with a $10, 000+ member-crowdsourced Impact Fund.
2. Visionary Compass Accelerator Program (our elite accelerator program for the 1% best in class African visionaries to launch, grow and scale their next-level assignment) went LIVE with our Class of 2022 Academic Year and I am still in awe of the calibre of leaders we have in the Program this year! Our Visionary Leadership MasterClass with Fela Durotoye became an instant hit, enrolling 10, 000+ students in days after we launched it.
We are so thankful to thought-leaders who have provided us expert guidance and mentorship this year, including Joycee Awosika, Naomi Osemudua, Abi Longe, Abiola Adediran, John Obidi, Dr. Emmanuel Tarfa, Dr. Sam Ekundayo, Sola Adesakin, Dr. Oleg Konovalov and Just Ibe.

3. EPIC Events: Oh! We feel so proud of the EPIC Events we held this year, which provided catalytic coaching for our global community. Some of our best 2022 Events at IMMERSE are Visioning 2022 Retreat, Live Awake Conference 2022 (IWD Edition), Ghana Coaching Hangout, Dubai Coaching Retreat with DDK, MoBalo Future of Fashion Roundtable, VCAP Coaching Retreat, Future-Forward Female Intensive 3.0.

5. Future-Forward Female Movement – This continues to be such a strong inspiration to me, and a powerful expression of my assignment as a transformational coach! Through the Movement, we are rallying a conscious collective for visionary women of African descent this Decade. From our Future-Forward Female Intensives which has been attended by over 50, 000 women, to Future-Forward MasterMind (our high-tier membership for female leaders), to Future-Forward Female Assessment and the Future-Forward Folio; we are astonished by how much we achieved this great vision and I want you to know that something huge is coming in 2023.

KINGDOM LEADERS GLOBAL ALLIANCE 💃
At Kingdom Leaders Global Alliance, I am in awe of all the amazing opportunities we’ve had to provide spiritual discipleship, ministry mentorship, communities of faith, missionary support and counselling to tens of thousands of believers this year through various outreaches.
This year, it was a special blessing to directly disciple and mentor believers within our community through Kingdom Paradigm Sessions (my twice-a-month spiritual mentoring masterclasses). God has been so generous with great counsel, producing clarity, courage and conviction in us!
It was a weighty year of MINISTRY for us, with almost 50 internal and external events, which reached a cumulative of over 100, 000 direct attendees in both in-person and virtual contexts. Our year started with Torch Gathering, then we held AMPLIFY – Mentoring Conference with DDK (for my spiritual sons, daughters, proteges and partners), on to the Ministry MasterClasses, then our extraordinary Heavenly Portals’ Meeting, on to Supernatural Rain Ghana and Dubai, the Young Ministers’ Convention, and Believers’ CampMeetings in Ibadan and Abuja. We closed out 2022 with Kingdom Leadership Convention and 2022 Annual Retreat.
It has been a great privilege to proclaim Christ to believers all over the world in an atmosphere of the Word, Prayers and Worship!

My BIGGEST LESSONS from 2022 🤩
Each year is filled with profound insights and wisdom. As an individual as well as a visionary leader across various assignments and expressions; here are my top ten lessons from 2022!
1. Visionary Articulation: It is important to articulate what’s beating in your heart. Even if writing it scares you or makes you feel silly; doing so is the first step to giving your vision legitimate access into the earth realm. And if you’re not burning bright with a clear picture of where you’re headed, by every means, pursue foresight like your life depends on it. BECAUSE it actually does!
2. There’s a FIGHT in YOU: We’ve been in what I have called Seasons of the Pressing or Pruning. So many people have faced difficulties, disappointments and delay in 2022, and I know you could feel so tired of it all. But you must continue on your path courageously, because there is a fight in you. As you advance in the face of adversity, a new dimension of you will emerge. And that YOU is wiser, stronger and greater!
3. Commitment to Excellence: The decision to be thorough, excellent, value-soaked and exceptional is not merely an ethical choice, but a business and life strategy. We have absolutely no reason to be mediocre or play small. We may start with a segment or fraction of the whole, but even in our small beginnings, we must strive to do a good job every time! This is a sign of respect for ourselves, our vision and the people we are called to serve.
4. Multiplier People: As a leader, 2022 really reminded me that having the right people is actually EVERYTHING. There are people who come into your life to multiply your rest, resources and results; I call them Multiplier People. It is important to be clear about the talent you need, then pray with all your heart for them to come to you. Also, become intentional about developing your people, unlocking their genius to achieve goals, and complementing your weaker areas. (PS: Peep my daily 6PM Affirmation Alarm!)
5. Elegant Systems are Priceless!: This decade will reward legacy leaders, value-vested visionaries and forerunners with foresight; because unprecedented opportunities and never-seen-before open doors are emerging out of crises, megatrends and a new world order. Interestingly, it is not merely great ideas that will define the leaders; but solid systems to drive high performance, cutting-edge innovation and scale readiness. Begin to prepare! I will teach more on this during Visioning 2023 Retreat.
6. Mind your MIND: I shared at the start of 2022, that we were at the beginning of a Mental Health Revolution this Decade, with a likely rise in mental health challenges and suicide, even from prominent global citizens. Sadly, we witnessed this to some degree this year. This year, I found it all the more important to carefully, consciously and consistently nurture a wholesome and well soul – across all arenas of your emotions, will, imagination, thoughts and overall mindset.
7. Higher Demand : My voice, work and expertise have been in higher demand in the last few years, especially around coaching, consulting and spiritual ministry; producing higher impact, influence and income across all my expressions. But here is the big insight, especially for those who seek to elevate their authority and abundance in 2023; you will require greater mastery of the five supreme assets of your time, focus, energy, craft and favor.
8. Keep Building: Don’t care about the numbers. Just keep building. Everything adds up over time! If you fixate on how many people are listening to your podcast, buying your books or signing up for your webinar, you may not focus on the creative investments that will ultimately make you a leader in your industry. Never place your worth or validation on the stats, live from within and the numbers will catch up with time. (Still a powerful lesson for me!)
9. Sustain your Sabbath: With the degree of demand that was laid upon me this year, I placed even greater value on building Safe Spaces of Sabbath for my soul. For me, I consistently stepped away from the frenzy of work to rest and retreat, spent a lot of time with those I love, experienced the simple joys of nature, and immersed myself in good humour. I read, worshipped and cried, dressed up pretty and travelled a bit more. It made the difference for me!
10. Profitable PIVOTS: I know we are sometimes so afraid when approaching transitions that turn us away from what we’ve always known and done, but a time must come when we need to scale into significance and pivot into profit! No matter how far you’ve gone with a dimension of your assignment, God could unlock a new level – so that your GOOD doesn’t stand in the way of your GREAT. Guess what, that journey is terrifying, confusing and sometimes, all too unclear. But don’t wait until a fountain dries before you notice that a new water body is waiting for you. MOVE!
Let’s thank God for 2022. We have a lot to be grateful for! There are even greater days ahead of us! You will thrive, you will triumph. It is your time and your turn!
