Own Your Space
In this highly engaging keynote, Nadia will provide tips and techniques that will inspire you to always come across as the most confident, persuasive, polished and powerful version of yourself, particularly in stressful and high stakes situations.
Light the F.I.R.E.
We spend the majority of our time at work. Nurturing your existing network, as well as building new relationships in a strategic and mutually beneficial manner is critical to creating a positive work environment, accelerating execution and attracting new business. In this energizing keynote, Nadia will explore the 4 key factors necessary for developing solid, long-term relationships and building rapport every time you communicate.
Unleash the Power of Your Personal Presence
Do you constantly and consistently come across as the best version of yourself? Are you aware of your strengths as well as the qualities that can inadvertently sabotage you? In this interactive and highly engaging keynote, we examine the verbal and non-verbal qualities that will enhance your ability to leverage the power of your personal brand.
Elevate Your Personal Presence for a Winning Edge
We’ve all witnessed a moment when an individual walks in and commands a room. Presence is intangible and elusive; it’s a combination of confidence, authenticity and being socially aware of others. Every communication is an opportunity to create an impression – possessing presence can make or break professional success.
In this compelling keynote, participants will become more aware of what enhances their presence, what inadvertently sabotages their success, as well as learn techniques for quickly assessing others and how to project the very best version of themselves.

Areas of expertise include all areas of spoken communication including presence, networking/building relationships, presentation skills, influencing and conflict management; all customised for professional development and keynote presentations.
In addition to the above, Nadia is an Editorial Producer for CNN’s Weekend Morning program. This involves booking and pre-interviewing a very wide range of experts in different fields and guests, which requires media expertise and quickly establishing trust and comfort.
