Following his appointment, a profile of Adeyemi was also published on Forbes’ website describing him as having trained “thousands of people” in leadership for more than two decades.
“He has done this through the Daystar Leadership Academy (DLA), which has graduated over 40,000 people since 2002, and through seminars, workshops and conferences,”

“He currently serves as mentor to hundreds of CEOs in Nigeria and around the world.
