I have been very impressed with Nikki's presentation and her subsequent workshop. I was able to incorporate some of the strategies that she presented the next day. I have attended thousands of professional development activities in my twenty years of teaching. There were only three that I would characterise as career changers, that is, activities that permanently changed what I did and how I did it. Thanks for the framework to find some balance. It is without hesitation that I recommend Nikki as an exemplary presenter, available to reach participants and engage them.

Nikki was a fantastic presenter who understands our profession/stress level/lifestyle and, based on her knowledge, suggested a lot of doable activities to improve our quality of life.
- Valkstone Primary School
Nikki was fantastic to listen to. She shared stories with us. She was real - I appreciated that.
- Laura Young, Sherwood Ridge Public School
I could not have been more delighted with the positive response as Nikki had the staff in her hands from the first few moments until the end where the feedback was resoundingly positive. Months down the track staff are still referring back to the handful of very useful strategies and marvelling at how they have been able to integrate some of these mindful ideas to improve their stress management each day. Our students have been taking their learning back home and feedback leading into the usual 'NAPLAN stress' period has been positive as well. We will definitely be looking for funding to make this a part of every year's PL at our school.
