I attended your Parenting on the Run course – probably about 10 years ago. I just want to let you know that I so enjoy your newsletters, articles and parenting advice. As a mom of 4, there is always something I learn and something I can identify within our family.Thank you for the sanity and ‘calm’ you add to our exciting parenting journey.Dandylion Green Business Solutions
I am in awe!!! Your talk last night: Parenting on the Run at Henley Business School was not only fun and encouraging and informative and empowering - I was blessed and motivated... When I shared last night's experience with my manager this morning she mentioned that you must be my inspiration. May God bless you for the work you do as you strive to equip the warriors on how to handle; prepare and launch their arrows - "Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord...Like arrows in the hand of a warrior" You are an inspiration!!!
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the Parenting on the Run workshop you gave at our daughter’s school, Our Lady of Fatima, in Durban last week. Your energy and empathy (sharing your own life experiences) so resonated with us.
“When you came over to Rustenburg we played games with cards and had so much fun. Thank you for opening my eyes to being light hearted and making an opportunity to laugh and play.”
Dear Nikki Just to let you know (again :)) how much I enjoy reading your newsletters. They are always informative and thought-provoking! I wish I had your job, I would love to speak publicly to people (especially to kids) like you do, about topics such as this and encourage them to personal growth. Yes, in my next life I definitely want to be you!!
Hi Nikki. I am a student at Parkview Senior School and I just wanna say I …REALLY LOVED YOUR PRESENTATION TODAY!!! THANKS ALOT! And one thing to remember: one body, one mind and one reputation!Student at Parkview Senior School
You were absolutely spot on with your Evolution of Learning presentation at our Western Cape SAPA Conference. It was so relevant to where our educators are at and was put together in such an accessible way. Thank you.Immediate Past President of SAPA
"I attended your parenting on the run workshop when my daughter Holly was about 18months old and it was hugely beneficial. I attended the same workshop last weekend for the Crossroads School Fundraising breakfast, and it was really fantastic to have a reminder of the importance of play. I had slipped a bit into relying on the TV to entertain my daughter in the afternoons after work, however since attending your workshop on Monday I have been instituting periods of play time together. A few things that I have noticed in the few days since your workshop:"The joy on Holly’s face when we play together The way she verbalises what we are doing (e.g. she says “we are playing togethermummy!”) (this reminds me of the poem you read at the end of your workshop – “come mummy, play WITH me”) The way she is able to spend another 10 – 15 mins playing alone once her “emotional cup” has been filled by playing together How easy it actually is to let an almost three year old help you in the kitchen (a blunt knife and a piece of cucumber goes a long way!!) and how proud and included she feels at being allowed to participateThank you so much for your workshops, I feel incredibly enriched and grateful for the changes I am already seeing in my family.
We were privileged to have you address the Transaction Capital Women’s Forum on the 29th of May 2013. Your “Parenting on the run” workshop was extremely well received by the attending women, many of whom provided positive feedback and felt that they had gained useful insight into how they might spend guilt free quality time with their kids. I believe they benefited from knowing that they are not alone and others experience similar feelings. They walked away with some practical tools and feeling encouraged that they can succeed at being great mothers. Personally I have been reminded again to give my teenage daughters my full attention during the time we have together and to manage the boundaries between work and family time carefully. Thank you for your entertaining and enriching contribution to our women’s group.MBD Credit Solutions, Managing Executive: Business Solutions Unit
"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."Women in IT
