We booked Nikki as the after dinner speaker at our annual conference, hoping that our delegates would be inspired by her amazing story, and we were most certainly not disappointed.
You could have heard a pin drop as Nikki shared her experiences. Speaking simply from her heart, she warmed our hearts and opened them up, so that we too, vowed to face our own challenges with courage, determination and good cheer.
We were delighted to have Nikki at our conference and are very grateful for her unique, memorable contribution to its success.'
