My keynotes and workshops are designed to truly engage audiences so attendees can eliminate limiting beliefs about their own lives and capabilities and begin to live more authentically and courageously. No more boring speeches, impractical concepts that can’t be applied, or rambling sessions with no tangible outcomes. You’ll finally feel like you’ve found someone who can deliver the message you want and content you need to make a difference.
You keep trying to find great speakers, but it seems like even the ridiculously highly-paid ones are sort of “meh”. You’re annoyed and starting to feel a little hopeless about finding a speaker everyone will rave about.
Wasted time, wasted energy, wasted money- you’re over it. You’ve got a team that deserves better than what they’ve been getting, and you’re worried about finding someone who can actually connect with them. You’re afraid that a bad facilitator will just make things worse, and you want to really wow your group.
Bad evals are no fun, and you’re determined to bring something high-value for your audience. You’re frustrated by impractical, concept-heavy presentations that don’t provide ways to implement any of the lessons learned. You want to really impact your group, and you want a speaker who can be both engaging AND deliver a message and tactics that will help your audience.
Bringing in someone who builds immediate trust with your group, grabs their interest for the entirety of the engagement, and delivers a message that is both meaningful and actionable.
Nicole’s training made an IMMEDIATE impact. I realized that I had carried some bias into a meeting with a co-worker that I often have conflict with. I went into the meeting with a mindset of presumed benevolence which lowered my stress level and made it easier to find empathy and work toward a positive outcome. Thank you!

Book an exploratory call now so we can get started customizing an amazing, fun, and high-value experience for your team or attendees! We’ll hit the ground running to make sure your workshop or keynote experience drives meaningful results and garners rave reviews.
Leaning on my decades of speaking and facilitation experience and your vision of what you’re hoping to accomplish, we’ll identify desired outcomes, bust through any challenges, and create a path forward that leaves you feeling supported and confident. Once we crystallize a vision, I’ll take it from there and you can trust that I’ll execute on exactly what you want.

Attendees and participants will know their time was well-spent, and they’ll be excited to put into action the concepts, conversations, and strategies they discover during the engagement.
While I have a few frequent topics that tend to pop up, all engagements are 100% customized to you. No canned content here. During our exploratory call, I’m happy to brainstorm with you to get your topic and content just right for what you’re hoping to achieve.
Sure! Just know that the list doesn’t stop here.
Sorry, Not Sorry: Stop Shoulding Yourself!
Fill in the blanks: “I should ________. I should do more of ___________. I should stop ___________. I shouldn’t have __________.” For many of us (and if not for you, certainly for some of your team members!), there is a damaging script that runs in the background, creating obstacles to truly being our best selves and maximizing our success. We “should” all over ourselves, and it’s keeping us from what we want to achieve. This session delivers powerful insights around the guilt phenomenon while equipping attendees to break the negative cycle of guilt and to be more effective when encountering its negative effects on coworkers.
Impostor Syndrome and the Insidious Nature of Doubt
Impostor syndrome is rooted in doubt. Doubt says “I don’t know if I can do this.” Fear says “I don’t know if I should do this.” It’s important to know the difference because you’ll deploy different tactics to battle doubt than you will to battle fear. Impostor Syndrome is the thing that makes you worry that some day, the jig will be up. EVERYONE will realize just how unworthy you really are of that position you hold or thing for which you are responsible. Impostor Syndrome makes us question our own capabilities, and it can over-inflate the importance of criticism we receive — or imagine we are receiving — from others. This fast-moving workshop will explore tactics for hopping off the bullet train of doubt, effectively confronting (and even collaborating with!) your own impostor syndrome, and cultivating an environment of success for yourself and those around you. You’ll walk away feeling affirmed, empowered, and ready to stand fully in your own right space.
Bypassing Burnout & Dealing with Dumpster Fires
One of the most popular ways to describe the last two years was “dumpster fire”. Pandemic fatigue, virtual meeting burnout, stress at home and in the workplace… it’s been a lot. And there’s more to come as we move into whatever the workplace is going to look like as we continue through 2022! This rapid-fire session is designed to give you a bit of a break and a whole lot of strategies for navigating the challenges of low-level stress and high levels of uncertainty. Geared towards high achievers looking for easy-to-implement strategies to level-up your life (at work and outside of it!), we’ll learn and actively apply physiological-based tactics to manage stress, create plans for leveraging self-sustenance practices and principles to benefit our work days, and incorporate productivity tips to manage burnout. Get ready to engage and interact – it will make you think as much as it will make you laugh.
Overcome the Overwhelm
Inundated. Buried. Overloaded. Overwhelmed. Riding the struggle bus. If any of these describe you and you are feeling like to-do lists aren’t getting shorter and demands on your time only seem to be increasing, this session is for you. We’ll explore how to prevent energy leaks and optimize productivity without sacrificing your own well-being. Being a high producer doesn’t have to mean high stress.
Work/Life Balance is a Lie: Why Work/Life Integration Holds the Key to Your Success
Sometimes even just the phrase “Work/Life Balance” can create pressure. We hear it and immediately have images in our head of all the ways we are imbalanced- maybe life at home is taking precedence with caring for aging family members or dealing with an unforeseen emergency. Maybe work is taking a prominent role with a key project that requires extra hours or a new role to navigate. Work and Life don’t fit neatly into separate boxes. Learning how to integrate these instead of trying to balance them can help ease pressures and allow you to be happier, more fulfilled, and more productive.
Courageous Conversations: Improving dialogue in the workplace (or at home!)
Wires get crossed, conversations get sidetracked, and progress gets derailed. You leave the meeting wondering if anyone even noticed you were there. Your annual performance review is “fine” but doesn’t lead to any meaningful skill development or progress towards your goals. Join this session to gain some practical strategies for engaging in Courageous Conversations and making sure communication is productive.
Extending Your Influence: Building a powerful professional reputation
We increase efficacy through influence, and we build influence through authentic connections and a powerful presence. Our “brand” or professional reputation helps expand our influence. This session focuses on tactical approaches to building a powerful professional reputation- regardless of your position in your organization.
Every engagement is customized to fit your budget if we decide to work together. We’ll chat about this during our exploratory call to make sure we’re a right fit for each other!
Oh yeah! I’ve spent a LOT of time doing virtual keynotes, facilitations, workshops, and even full-on strategic plans virtually over the last few years. I’m comfortable on all of the platforms and have modified presentations and methods of engagement to ensure highly interactive engagements.
There’s no pie in this sky! I don’t just teach a concept or idea and leave everyone hanging. I make sure attendees know exactly how to implement that concept or idea, emphasizing practical and actually workable strategies. I also focus on audience engagement through activities, interaction with fellow attendees, worksheets, and even physical movement. And if that’s not enough, I believe in having FUN, and I bring my big ol’ personality and sense of humor to every engagement, regardless of subject matter.
See previous questions!
In my previous life organizing team trainings, facilitations, and conferences, I used to wonder the same thing. The truth is, you’re not just paying for that 90-minute presentation or 4-hour block of time. You’re paying for the experience and knowledge that has come from every other keynote, facilitation, and training that I’ve done as well as the 20+ years of experience I have. All of this comes together to ensure you have exactly the amazing experience you deserve.
