Rarely do we acknowledge the role of people who shape us, mould us, help us find ourselves by discovering our passion while taking the leap of faith to finally have the courage to go after our dreams. 
I've always had a passion for event planning and floral design however, I was scared and afraid that I will fall flat on my face. One day, I stumbled on Akeshi's social media page and was intrigued of her talent. I immediately saw myself in her and felt a sense of calmness, confidence and strength that I too have the ability to achieve success if I have the right mentor to help guide me through this journey. I decided to attend her first workshop and the rest is history.
Mentorship with Akeshi was by far the best investment I could have done for myself. I've learned so much and my business has shifted for the better. Her one on one coaching provided me with the tools that I can use to take my business to the next level. As a mentor, she taught me how to stand out among the bunch, how to utilize social media and make it work for me, how to write a proper proposal, contract, developing content for my website, how to select the right vendor, lead management, how to properly brand myself to attract the right clients and so much more. Prior to her mentorship my business wasn't where I needed it to be, but after taking her one on one, my business has grown significantly and I couldn't be happier.
She's so unselfish with her time that I felt l like I'm her only mentee. She pushes me, she believes in me, she inspires me and constantly reminding me that I can DO IT. She wants me to be great, she sees my success as her success, my wins are her wins. Akeshi is very transparent, selfless and giving. She pours herself entirely into you making sure you will be successful even after your mentorship has completed. She shares her experiences, her ups and downs, her mistakes and her victories to help propel you in this industry. Akeshi is more than a mentor, she's a friend, sister, someone I look up to, count on, and can always go to for advice.
Today, as I stand tall holding my head high, I cannot help but bow down to the teacher who has made me who I am. I want to sincerely thank you for all the efforts and the patience you have shown in transforming me from an average designer to a confident, focused successful event designer. I will always remain grateful for all the things I have learnt from you. I believe 2018 & 2019 will be my best years yet. It's an honor to be your mentee.

Anxious to expand my knowledge of floral design and awed by Akeshi 's to-drool-over yummy centerpiece confections, I excitedly signed up for a three day seminar. Upon arrival I quickly revelled in being surrounded by hundreds and hundreds of blooms and fabulous, like minded creatives. I expected to take away knowledge of the "how-tos" of Akeshi's masterpieces, but what I acquired over those 3 days was infinitely more than I ever expected. 
Foremost was the friendship developed with Akeshi in such a short time. This exquisite woman is a grand success in her field, but kindheartedly and humbly nurtured along my attempts to emulate her vision, while encouraging me to develop my own. She freely gives of her creativity while also expecting the best from all of the group-and she is shoulder to shoulder with us as we worked through the process. 
I am extremely grateful to have been under the tutelage and mentor ship of Akeshi and plan on taking another class with her. Don't hesitate taking this seminar. I can truly say it gave me a new direction for my fledgling business, an increased world vision of my fellow creatives, and deep joy in creating such exquisite, detailed beauty for all to enjoy.

The Kesh Experience is a game changer! My expectations were surpassed anything I I was thinking. Akeshi is an AMAZING designer and teacher. I love the fact that she was transparent with the class and very hands on in her teaching. I had not floral training before I took this class. Now the sky is the limit on what I can design. I would advise anyone who is wanting to train with the BEST to sign up for this class! I will be taking this class again. This class has change my life and business.
