She aims to bring out the best in all those around her and see people be happier, healthier and flourish.
Nicola has trained and coached thousands of the best in multiple industries to become savvy in training, coaching and retaining good people within organisations. She has taken this executive and management coaching and applied it to the development of our emerging leaders of the future, to the young people who need it the most.
Nicola’s message is simple: It’s your talented teen, make them a more capable person. This is when they need it at the start of their adulthood, with more skills comes more opportunity. These skills become life skills you take with you when you finish your HSC. This is the time for you to invest in your child.
Nicola’s background is colourful. The daughter of a two immigrants, one a Scottish Lass who immigrated to Australia on her own and a young man from Lebanon who came here to seek and find his fortune. Nicola and her siblings were encouraged to gain a full education and grasp every opportunity that came her way.
With degrees in Business, Adult Education, and Organisational Coaching as well as over 30 years experience in Finance, TAFENSW, the Service Industry, Manufacturing, Sydney Olympics, and State and Local Government, Nicola has the depth and breadth of knowledge. This experience is now channeled into her business of developing young talent, our future leaders who are currently in their teens and 20s. Combined with over 3000 hours of coaching experience, Nicola has the depth of experience you would be looking for.
Her success goes well beyond her corporate experience. She draws on her demanding life experiences, her qualifications, her networks, and corporate and TAFE training to collaborate with young people to release their potential and obtain measurable results.
When Nicola is not working on her business, you can find her out being adventurous with her family; cycling, diving and travelling, or working on her urban church that she is currently converting into her new family home.
