If you are looking for a STANDOUT inspirational speaker, Nicky is your ideal candidate. Her expertise as a Clinical Psychologist places her at an advantage; not only does Nicky have an exceptional personal story to tell, she does so in a way that enables the audience to take away key skills to create sustainable change in our attitudes, beliefs and emotions.
Nicky’s keynote talk entitled “Cultivating Optimism” is more relevant than ever. Nicky interweaves her personal story with key concepts in Psychology to look at how we are able to face adversity and challenge with hope, optimism and curiosity. Nicky is a firm believer that we need to stop asking ourselves “CAN we do it?” but rather ask ourselves, “HOW can we do it?!” We need to stop comparing ourselves to others and use what we have.
