My name is Pat, my friends call me Patty and my familycall me Adaora. I was born in Southwest Nigeria, Ibadan to be precise and I lived all my life there before I started to navigate my path around the world. I am your sister-girl next door and based on the comments I have received overtime, I can summarize my being as a dainty, petite, eloquent, observant and creative media girl with a positive energy and good spirit who is unbiased and can cope with any open minded human.
Professionally, I am an all-round media professional with vast experience in English communication, digital marketing skills and my official profile description includes being a Media coach, youth mentor and serial entrepreneur, project manager, Radio/TV presenter, corporate event host/Moderator and content creator that spans a boutique of engaging everyday topics ranging from self-help guides, corporate ethics, presentation tips, spiritual charge-ups, business tips and lifestyle inspiration etc. Academic wise, I am a graduate of Theatre Arts, University of Ibadan, an alumnus of the FRCN Broadcast School Lagos and the London Film & Media Academy where she studied Radio and Television Presenting.
Based on the experiences I have gathered over the years as a woman in media, I have so far authored three books titled- Life of a Media Girl, #31 Media Hacks you should know! And the latest one, #ThePatriology, a 3in1 book on finding purpose and being an entrepreneur in this perilous time. My speaking engagement has given me opportunities to stand before awesome people in my country Nigeria and in the Diaspora especially in the UK and the USA.
Due to this, I have enjoyed features on Guardian Nigeria, ISUU UK and various major Blogs and radio/TV platforms including London’s media stations, Radio Harrow and Colourful Radio UK, Arise TV and PhillyCam in Philadelphia, USA where i co-hosted global trending stories around the world. When I am not working or consulting either as a corporate PR/personal brand specialist, customer relations, business developer and digital media manager, I spend my time adding few chapters to my books, cooking, tending to children, and presenting my Audio blog, #PatspirationPodcast, Vlog/Radio show “Pat Obilor Live“.
As a humanitarian and positive social influencer, I am the host/digital influencer for ‘Standout with Pat’; a lifestyle TV show and socio-digital platform that celebrates people, brands and places. I am the managing partner for Sparkles Media group, a firm that specialize in PR, event management, personal branding, tourism and Media productions and I founded of Media Brunch Academy, an online media training platform for aspiring broadcasters and as a Humanitarian, I established the “Pat Obilor charity for Africa” – POCA foundation to support indigent youth education and Mogulettes Africa community/Magazine, an online publication & global platform that empowers women start-ups and mentors the Boychild and the Girl child.

Truth is, my life’s not perfect and I don’t have it all together yet, but if you think I’m awesome…I’d like you to hold on to that thought as I welcome you to my world… Winks!
