The inclusive recruitment website asked Esi to star in their promotional video.


I just wanted to say thank you. You are such an engaging speaker… From our first conversation at the D&I event. I came away with admiration and thinking not only how intelligent but also how articulate you are. You are such an effortless storyteller and then to see you hold the room at the away day in a manner that you did left me (and many of my other colleagues) with an even greater feeling of awe!
