Hi, I’m Fisayo, a business developer and writer based in Amsterdam.
My work has been centered around developing and implementing specific strategies for businesses, with over 6 years of working with founders from different continents and nationalities that are focused on solving impact related issues, which means providing solutions that are SDGs focused.
Take a look at my portfolio and read how people describe how it’s like to work with me.
When I am not co-solving business issues, I write and co-write about topics I find interesting, topics that range from investing, business strategy, Africa, the SDGs, Millennials, and more. All of my writings are available here
Here I am, on 18th October 2019, at a Women In Tech Lecture & Executive Luncheon, with Rianne Van Veldhuizen, the Vice President Digital Sales, IBM Asia Pacific, to my left Maggie Feng, CEO of Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences, and my far left is Amy Abdou a Senior Lecturer at Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences.
It remains a cherished honor that it was unanimously agreed that I should appear in the front row of such an iconic picture, though I arrived 20 minutes before the luncheon ended.
I’m the co-founder of Le Relief Enterprise (LRE), and my clients hire me because of my expertise and methodic and wholistic approach to business development – you can learn more here.
Prior to co-founding LRE, I worked on the TV Production and IT team of Dunamis International Gospel Centre (DIGC).
I got curious about how global businesses are built, sustained, and become global financial behemoths, which first led me to subscribe to the Alpari Forex Beginner Course, then joined the Chartered Institute of Stockbrokers Nigeria, where I was advised that an MBA in finance will edify my curiosity, in which my graduation date is set for February 2021.
Lastly, if you haven’t guessed, I find joy in working with SMEs and large enterprises to achieve their business goals.
Since 2003, I have been curious about how global brands have a high value for their goodwill on their balance sheets. This is one of the reasons why LRE, was focused on providing solutions for businesses and individuals to create value through their corporate branding and digital marketing.
My curiosity led me to develop my marketing and corporate branding skills through extensive research.
To date, it remains a privilege for my team and me that we created the corporate brand for Benford International School. Yet, I felt something was missing in my skill-set and knowledge in corporate branding, which confirmed my need for an MBA.
Presently, I am confident that with over five years of solving corporate branding and marketing issues for businesses in three continents, I believe I’m equipped with the skills required to help firms create a global brand.

How Do you know If you need a Business Developer?
What does a business developer do?
I provide you with an independent and educated insight on your business idea and expansion needs. I work with you to develop the plan required to build and launch your product or service. Co-create and co-decide with you on the key features for your product or service launch, or perhaps your market extension needs.
Also, set up your management framework, find the right people for your team, and connect you with people that can be helpful to you and your business.
How Do I Know if a business developer is Right for Me?
If you have a business idea, but you don't have the time to learn the required skills to implement the idea, this is when you send me an email.
Is it time that you extend your product to another market, and you need to make strategic hires and navigate or penetrate into a new market? Yes, this is when you give me a call.
Are you skilled in a particular area in implementing your business idea, or do you prefer to focus on a particular area in actualizing your idea? Yet, you need to implement industry practice to complement your skills? This is when you reach out to me.
Is your team growing and you need training in global standards, knowledge, and insights to manage your success? This is another cue for you to give me a call or send me an email.
Do You Only Work With Established Companies?
No! There is an equal pleasure working with first-time entrepreneurs to develop their business ideas. The joy I get is equivalent to watching a baby take its first steps.
Do You Offer Ongoing Business Development Services?
Yes, I do. It is important that you know that most of my clients often insist I become a partner.
Do You Invest In Startup Companies?
No, I do not. I connect my clients that need investment to investors and work with them to ensure that they have the documentation that improves their chances of getting investment.

Some Awesome Companies & People I Have Worked With
Though Fisayo applied as a Digital Marketer, I hired him as the Director of Marketing and Technology, because of his enthusiasm and knowledge of marketing and the digital space. He provided and implemented innovative ideas from his interview to his exit. Fisayo's knack to deliver according to international standards and go the extra mile on his assigned tasks and responsibilities makes me confident to assure you that you will be satisfied working with him.
Fisayo, has been helping our not-for-profit in the past year and a half as a marketing expert. I really appreciate his vast knowledge and enthusiasm on the topic and sharing with me and other team members. He brilliantly introduced the Disciplined Entrepreneur process to our marketing process, and that was enormously insightful. I have no doubt that Fisayo would be a great asset!
Fisayo was recommended as a web developer and designer when I needed a website for IPIAD, my real estate company. I was inspired by his ability and willingness to work closely with the logo designer, and content creator to ensure alignment in IPIAD’s online presence. His pursuit to achieve efficiency and effectiveness, and that any project he is involved with meets international standards, keeps me eager to have him involved in my other projects.
