Temi Odurinde, WaSH Advocate
Hello, welcome to my page. My name is Temi Odurinde, I am a sustainable development advocate with interest in international development. I am particularly passionate about WaSH (water, sanitation and hygiene) aspect of international development. With my friend, Abbey Longe, I co-founded a tiny WaSH charity called Hope Spring Water. In our own small way, we are hoping to make a difference to the lives of people in developing communities in Nigeria who are struggling to have access to safe clean drinking water.
You can find out more information about Hope Spring Water by visiting its website: www.hopeSpring.org.uk.
How not to record a video selfie for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
I never realised how difficult being an actor or any other profession that requires public speaker can be till I tried recording a video selfie in support of the newly launched UN sustainable development goals (SDGs). Here is take 21 of my SDGs selfie, no luck with improving those dodgy Yoruba pronunciations ?
But I hope I managed to get the very important Goal 6 of the UN SDGs across.
Temi Odurinde is an IT professional who has worked extensively in various aspects of all things dealing with computers and operating them. This includes hardware, software, and networking. Educated mainly in London, England: his many qualifications related to computer/Internet development include A+, CNA, MCSE+1, BSc in Psychology and Computing and an MSc in Internet technologies. As if that isn’t enough, he also holds networking computer certifications in Cisco and Novell.
Temi worked mainly for blue chip companies until about 13 years ago when he began working for himself. He found a web hosting company which he managed for 7 years prior to selling it. He considers himself to be entrepreneur and owns and operates a few small websites in the leisure niche. His latest project is a dating/social networking site called Travel Friendz.
Temi has enjoyed a long learning experience in the world of Internet possibilities. He also has a sense of humour about his field of work. In the age of Internet Dinosaurs, he used to type his name into search engines to see what would turn up about him. This was during the time where there were only a billion or so pages online. Google and Yahoo boasted about how many sites they had indexed back then. Today, it would be difficult to count all of them. Anyway, at that time, the keyword “temi” turned up on the first page. Now, there are so many Temis on the Internet that it is not a guarantee that the name will be on the first page.
Some Temis that you might find these days in various search engines include hotels with that name, many people from all over the world named Temi, a Polish company called Temi, and even a former child actress named Temi Epstein. Temi learned these fascinating facts through his random searches regarding his name. You can see that he does, indeed, have a sense of humour.
Currently, Temi works in web development, web mastering, and web hosting along with search engine marketing and optimisation. He is happy to share the journey of how he acquired this knowledge with anyone who is interested in knowing. Having worked so hard to get where he is today, he understands how difficult this road to success can be. That is why he is willing to help others that are travelling this same path.
Temi’s idea of relaxation is sports related. He plays volleyball every week and loves to participate in endurance sports such as long distance walking, half-marathon and Marathons. He has run in most of the popular European Marathons including Paris and Berlin Marathon. Currently, he is preparing to climb Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa, in 2015.
Working mostly as a freelance webmaster as well as a search engine optimization and SEM consultant, Temi will occasionally accept freelance and contract SEO projects.
