Nicky Moffat is regularly booked to engage audiences at events, read their latest feedback below:
“We booked Nikki to talk at our ‘women in road’ network event. Nicky gave a fantastic talk and really connected with her audience who found her both interesting and thought-provoking. She was a great success and feedback after the event was all positive- they loved her”
“Leadership and management are two skills that you can never invest too much in. Nicky was the keynote speaker at a breakfast meeting I organised for over 140 businesses to encourage them to invest in leadership and management training. The audience was engaged and inspired. Nicky demonstrated how tried and tested Army methods can be applied to business; afterwards they were queuing up to speak to her and ask her questions. Although Nicky has no doubt faced tougher challenges in her army career, a room full of businesspeople waiting to be impressed at 7 am can be quite daunting but she had them hanging on her every word. Nicky received some of the best feedback for any speaker I have had to one of my events. I have no hesitation in recommending Nicky for any public speaking roles”
“I have had the pleasure of working with Nicky both as a speaker and also as a Leadership Coach. Her pragmatic and enigmatic style keep the audience engaged, using storytelling to send clear messages that reinforce great leadership. As a coach she is able to quickly assess and identify the key priorities to be explored, allowing topics to be progressed in a fast and efficient way. I would totally recommend Nicky for her expertise, delivery and commitment- she is 100% reliable and an excellent resource for any organisation”
