TESTIMONIALS

"The Caribbean Media Corporation (CMC) is pleased to showcase on our Caribbean Channel, CaribVision, 'The Olympic Moment – by Idy Uyoe'. 

 

These vignettes are interesting and informative and were a great lead in for our terrestrial stations, who also found them useful to engage their viewers on Olympic facts and history.

 

We encourage further development of such topical programs on matters of general interest, and we look forward to working with Idy Uyoe and his team to showcase these efforts." 

Lori Weatherhead - Team Leader

Caribbean Media Corporation

The Nigeria Olympic Committee engaged Idy Uyoe as a Consultant to conduct a Sports Marketing Workshop for our NOC and affiliated National Sport Federations, and we were quite pleased with the results. From the planning phase of the project, to organization and delivery, Idy asked the right questions and was quite thorough in his preparation and approach. We found his content insightful, his delivery engaging and his sport knowledge quite impressive. Idy clearly understood the unique challenges facing our national sport federations when it comes to attracting sponsorships to fund programme initiatives, and his presentation directly addressed these areas of need. Given the positive feedback we received from delegates, coupled with my own interaction with the Consultant, I enthusiastically recommend Idy Uyoe to those seeking a knowledgeable resource in sport marketing, and the Olympic Sport segment in general.

"Many of our MedMedia orthopedic offices and their physicians are regularly treating professional and national sports teams as well as high school, collegiate and Olympic athletes ... The Olympic Moment with Idy Uyoe segments are interesting and engaging stories and that’s what we want to offer our MedMedia viewers."
