My focus for the past 13 years has been working with corporates, educators & parents alike, helping them to manage, educate & parent talent for the new world of work. I’m in the business of raising human potential at every level.

My goal has been to redefine what talent means in the 21st Century by providing talent interventions & workshops for companies, helping them to increase their engagement & retention levels with their millennials. I also help teams both small & large to reconnect with each other & themselves, to move beyond being a human doing & to rediscover how to be a human being.

I am consistently described as creative, inspirational, energetic & memorable – providing practical, easy-to-implement advice & solutions that are relevant to a fast-changing world. Where possible, presentations are customized for the client.

I was awarded my CSP™ (Certified Speaking Professional) designation from the NSA (National Speakers Association) in the USA in 2016 (one of just over 600 in the world).  It is the highest earned international recognition for professional speakers who speak for a living.  In South Africa I am currently the 10th speaker to acquire my CSP.

Bastiaan SmitFinance Executive, Nedbank

“We had a great Get Outta Your Head workshop with Nikki Bush. We had a host of ladies who joined at the Women in IT networking event and they had a blast. It was a great session, definitely a go to event. If you want to see your staff making noise, connecting and having fun, Get Outta Your Head is definitely for you and your team.”
