Sunday Tollefson – Fierce Success Advocate for Women and Girls

Nikki presented an outstanding, moving segment for the in-studio audience at the women’s event I run, Inspired Success: Empowering Emerging Leaders. In fact, in the post-event surveys, audience members rated her as their favorite out of 12 speakers that day. And for good reason. She knocked the ball out of the park, so to speak. She inspired everyone in the studio, was delightfully likable, and provided truly actionable strategies for our audience members. Thank you, Nikki! Here’s to your success!

Teresa Nickell – Owner, Coeur d’ Alene Baking

After hearing Nikki speak at a workshop I attended, I hired her do a training for my company focused on recognizing buying signals and what do when you get one from a client. All of my staff that interact with customers were in attendance from the drivers, front office staff, production, sales and management. This training was tailored to our needs, full of easy to implement skills and allowed for a lively discussion across departments on how best to serve our customers. The time and money was well spent to invest in our future growth. These skills will be invaluable for years to come.
