Welcome to Dream Corner, my name is Viv Oyolu. Dream Corner is a radio show and online hub of heart to heart conversations with inspiring women of all ages talking about career journeys, life and passion.
Dream Corner is an independent online hub, but is currently syndicated to Channel Radio and airs every Wednesday at 3pm.
The show has evolved over the years since it started in 2011. It was a live show that aired on OnFM Radio and when the station shut down, I started interviewing mostly out the Royal Festival Hall which was brilliant and challenging finding a quiet spot; but I was determined to keep it going because of the reaction of guests who never really get to talk about themselves. Today all interviews are done over Skype which means I get to interview more fabulous women across the country and continents!
My goal for creating this platform is to showcase ordinary women like you doing extraordinary things in your world. I am passionate about telling your story – your journey to where you are, so other women know what is possible. If you are getting in touch to be featured on Dream Corner, please note, as much as I may talk about your business, the interview will focus mostly on your journey – so it’s not so much a platform to showcase YOUR business but more about YOU – you the woman who is amazing, but rarely gets to talk about herself.
For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to be a radio presenter, but I never had the confidence to pursue it, and think prior to when I got the gig, would been happy to go through life without fulfilling this dream. But through a chain of events which was written about in the Sunday Telegraph Stella magazine in July 2012, Viv’s Telegraph article, you will see that anything and everything is possible. More recently (May 2014) I was featured on a US blog – ‘Giving Women’s Stories a Voice’
So far, all my guests have enjoyed the experience of being on Dream Corner; mostly because I don’t interview them, but have conversations . One of the best compliments I have received thus far was when someone said “it was almost as though I was dropping in on your conversation”.
Please stick around and listen to the fabulous women I have interviewed. If you want to get in touch, please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Happy listening and remember dreams can come true.
Thanks for stopping by.
