What clients have to say

“Bisi is a very special type of speaker. He brings what is a very personal life story and shares it with you in a way that is highly emotive. You feel that he is really letting you in to understand the pain and joy he has had in his life. The feedback from anyone who attended was that this was something really unique for them to be part of, which is great feedback, as we did our talk fully remote.”

Jamie O’Dwyer

“We were very lucky to have Bisi as a guest on Alexis Caught’s IGTV series, ‘Moments of Pride’. Bisi was incredibly brave, engaging and uplifting while recounting his intensely personal and harrowing experiences of conversion therapy as a teenager. He is clearly an incredible light on the road to LGBTQ+ awareness and rights. A rare and very special guest”

“Bisi Alimi joined the Living Free Asylum Corner as a Keynote Speaker. He is an unapologetic activist able to eloquently lay out topics and educate and advise around sexual health and sexual orientation, and social marginalisation. It was a real pleasure and honour to have him speak in our support group.”

“After Bisi’s presentation, we received excellent feedback from the audience. They all found his talk engaging and inspiring. I highly recommend Bisi as a speaker on LGBTQ and Race topics.”

Guy Tirvengadum

“Bisi was fantastically authentic! His passion, drive, positivity and humour really leant itself to the way he captivated the audience. His story is amazing and every single person in the room left with something to take away from it.”

Oliver Holmes

“Bisi was the speaker at our Fundraising Awards Dinner and he was outstanding! He completely held his audience; everybody was hooked from the moment he started speaking. He is an inspiration and I can’t recommend him highly enough.”

Kate Carroll

Bisi came to speak to our people as part of our LGBT+ History month campaign. His talk was extremely informative, passionate and delivered from the heart. Using his life experience, he was able to shine a light on the prejudice still faced by LGBT+ people in Nigeria as well as how intersectionality manifests itself both in Nigeria and in the UK being black, gay and HIV positive. It was great to see a ‘son of the soil’ using his story to effect positive change on the continent and beyond.

Bisi Alimi’s in-depth knowledge and insights respecting pre- and post-colonial indigenous sexuality, coupled with his grace and poise, served to create an invigorating space of inquiry and exchange over the course of which participants’ growth was palpable.

Bisi was a speaker at a Pride EMEA event and captured the hearts and minds of the audience. The word “inspiring” was used a lot to describe his impact, not just for the life journey he has had but also for his ideas and plans for the future and how we can all play a part in making that happen.
