“Since your inspiring keynote at SAP Ariba Live in Amsterdam, I have repeated, quoted and coined many of your insights internally and externally. Procurement executives of the futureneed to be inspirational coaches and change agents, equipped with building strong and empowered relationships with their suppliers and stakeholders. They require purpose, positivity, self-belief and fortitude to tolerate uncertainty while remaining agile and fun leaders. You are the epitome and role model for these “superpowers!” I would like to express my thanks for your energy, humour, motivation, resilience and for being such an impressive and impactful raconteur. I left your orbit as a stronger leader!”
Nandini Basuthakur, CEO, Procurement Leaders™ (UK)
Nicky spoke to an audience of around 1200 people aged from 4 through to adults at Bridge House Founders’ Day. Despite the range of age-groups, she had us mesmerized throughout her story. Our theme was “Gratitude”, and Nicky’s message moved us, amused us and uplifted us. She is a wonderful role-model and her infectious optimism is exactly the kind of inspiration we need in our country right now. We recommend her as a keynote speaker without reservation.
