I nspire people to rock their world

Abiola Salami is a gentleman with a passion to inspire people to rock their world like champions. I’m proudly Nigerian and African and I was raised, bred, buttered in Nigeria and then sold out to Africa and the world to inspire people to rock their world like champions.Everything started with a discovery. Then, I was in my third year in the university, searching for meaning of life and prior to that time, I had read many books and have been exposed to many insights and philosophies about life and it all came to one thing for me that for all of us on earth there is a purpose for why we were created. And we need to find it and start living according to it. Then for me, I used my skills to inspire people. I am the kind of person that could be multitalented but then, I realised you can be that and multi-confused at the same time. I did so many things and I asked myself what to do with all that, then I realised I had to combine that to inspire people to do better.

My Exposures Abroad

Some years ago, I was invited by the administration of President Barack Obama to the US for a US Consulate Programme called IVFLP and that exposed me into a lot of learning as well. One of the schools I can’t forget, Right State University, Ohio was one of those places I learnt a lot as well as University of Florida.

After School, I Worked in Four Thriving Institutions

Despite my discovery that time, I knew I didn’t have the requisite knowledge, skills, relationships and swag so I had to go through the process. That’s what got me into working with NGOS, HMO, Banking then Consulting. And finally after a decade running all of this I started running Champ full time 1st of December 2012. The beginning days were quite interesting as when you start doing something people don’t pay attention to you, thinking you are wasting your time, don’t even listen to you when you need support but with full passion to inspire and convince people to rock their world like champions I went head on into it. And it’s six years down the lane and things are getting better by the day.

We Opened Champ City Last year

I have always dreamt of having an inspirational center for people despite your gender and religion. A place were you can come and learn then start to think on a different level. Champ City is going fast and we have training facility there that people that come every now and then to make use of and we also run different programmes which are about 15. We also have a monthly series we run were we bring professionals together, we bring very top people from different industries to come and facilite and the experience has been phenomenal. So far we have engaged about five hundred plus people within a year. And our goal is to have inspired One Billion Champions by Monday 30th November 2026. We started counting in 2016 after we inspired 2.3 Million across 30 countries, last year we inspired 5 Million across those countries and this year we plan to inspire 10 million.
