When Turtles Fly
Sticking your neck out to reach your goals

How do individuals find the drive for what they do? How do they conquer their greatest obstacle? How do they take the appropriate risks to make sure their business skyrockets? Nikki relates how clients can answer these questions through her incredible Turtle Effect philosophy. Nikki discovered that she could find the passion to pursue her lifelong dreams, she could find the strength to overcome a spinal injury that 10 doctors told her wasn’t possible, and she could take the risk of soaring 50 feet in the air off a 10 foot all snow jump to win an Olympic Gold medal despite being afraid of heights. With inspiring tools, people find that Nikki’s inspiration will motivate them long after they have heard her speak.

“You motivate me still, today. Your inspiration will last a lifetime…I took your advice and surmounted the obstacles by focusing on my strengths--even when I wasn't sure if my strengths were still there. And now, I'm celebrating my victories as I move forward. And each victory reminds me that even in the face of adversity, my strengths were still there. This allows me to put risk--and fear--in perspective.”

Only Some Want to Fly

Hear how Nikki creatively makes this link and encourages attendees stand up to their obstacles and learn from the experience in order to cut a new path towards the finish line. Nikki will help change an attitude of discouragement to an experience of encouragement through a story filled with laughter, tears and lot of fist-pumping.

“Wow, wow, WOW! That presentation was POWERFUL!! We all felt like we were right there with you…. You could feel the electric energy flying from that conference room as we walked out after you spoke.”

You Can’t Get to the Top Alone

There’s no secret to finding a support system, the real secret lies in using it. Explore the hands-on activities Nikki shares in helping attendees reach new heights and use their support system to make sure they can land on their feet.

“It says something about a speaker that can captivate the entire audience during Sundance, at a fantastic ski resort, amidst an array of varied, accomplished speakers. You definitely stole the show!!”

We Only Live Once - Make it Count
Taking the Risk to Be Your Best

In order to reach your full potential we all have to think and act outside the box in order to get ahead. Take the journey with Nikki learning some unique tips and tools for individuals and businesses to take the next steps in your personal and professional lives.

“The guests have been talking about you nonstop since your speech. Your engagement was impactful, engaging, dynamic and empowering. You had something for each of us, entrepreneurs or not.”

Watch Out World, Here Come the Women
Women in Sports & Business Reaching New Heights

Business was once thought of as a man’s world and aerial skiing was once thought of as a man’s sport. Women have come on with a vengeance to debunk these stereotypes. Nikki will empower women to dig deeper, push further, fight harder, and stand taller in their pursuit of the top tier of their professions. Discover the assets that women have working for them and the concepts they can use to beat off the competition.
