During the COVID-19 crisis I have been running parent support programmes for corporates, SMMEs and schools including the JSE, RMB, Anglogold Ashanti, RMB Private Bank, Standard Bank, Vodacom, Standard Bank Wealth and Investment, Discovery, Brescia House School, Kyalami Schools, Simplybiz and many more. My presentations have also formed part of client events online.

The realities of working from home with kids and managing school from home too, are a major risk to any business’s (or school’s) bottom line right now and I am well-positioned to help with insights and practical solutions:

  • I have written a COVID-19 white paper called Keep Your Business Running that has been shared extensively
  • I have also landed a book contract with Penguin Random House on this topic
  • I do extensive media interviews on Navigating COVID-19 to Win at Work and Life including weekly Saturday AND Wednesday slots on Radio 702 among others
  • I am a Human Potential and Parenting Expert, speaker and author
  • I have built a business and a brand from home for 25 years with kids
  • I have walked the path of grief, loss and trauma for the past two years since my husband’s death

Book This Talk:

Working from Home

In other words, I ‘get it’ and can empathise from a deep and authentic place with my clients and audiences while not allowing them to become victims either. I help both employers, business owners and employees to be realistic and to take responsibility.

I am providing a number of companies with group parenting support and resources to help working parents find and keep perspective, to create a safe ‘container’ in which to hold their fear-riddled children and to create realistic expectations for how they show up at work, finding new ways to be productive while balancing the demands of parenting at the same time. There are also sessions just for management and leaders.

See what’s included in the Corporate or School Parent Support Programme below.

Creating a Support Programme for your Organisation:

My normal corporate speaker fee applies for virtual presentations of R37 950 per talk in South Africa (different fee structure for SMMEs and educational institutions).  Overseas presentation fees start at US$12 950 per presentation.

With each webinar you get:

  • A live 1-hour webinar
  • A recording for those who can’t make the session at that time or they wish to share with their spouse etc (on the matter of the recording, see the comments at the bottom of the email)
  • My brand, skills and my experience
  • Downloadable resources for delegates
  • Group coaching sessions 1 hour for each 1 hour webinar booked (use for groups or for a senior leader – these sessions are added value and whether you use them or not, they make no difference to my fee)

The following bulk discount will apply:

  • Single live webinar with a group coaching session (no discount)
  • Two live webinars with group coaching sessions (10% discount)
  • Three live webinars with group coaching sessions (15% discount)
  • Most organisations are opting for a two to three session package as we are not dealing with a single traumatic event, but an extended period of adjustment and transition during which employees need support to cope better on every level over time

Payment terms

  • As per my normal terms: full payment prior to execution of the project

Hi Nikki. An awesome Reframing Covid-19 webinar today. Thank you! Great feedback from staff. Colleagues appreciated you using a real and personal examples to share the principles of hope, how to build a positive mindset, and how to find collateral beauty in the collateral damage, providing a roadmap for moving forward. We look forward to the rest of your sessions with us.
Donald Khumalo, Human Resources Director, the JSE, May 2020
Hi Nikki. Thanks so very much. Your webinar was so inspirational and from the feedback we can see that our members of Simplybiz (powered by Nedbank) loved it. As a business owner and parent, I was really inspired by your webinar for a variety of reasons – the world will never be the same again and I can’t control everything, so I will embrace the new possibilities and opportunities around me and use this to my advantage; there is more collateral beauty in my life than collateral damage, and I can find the surprise in every day and be grateful; and lastly, what I do and how I act now matters (especially in front of my children and staff) and this is the time for strong and decisive leadership.
Michela Gordon, Group Managing Director, Javelin Advertising & Marketing, May 2020
The power of your work is that you give pictures and words to how people are feeling through your stories and frameworks. You help people to find themselves in the chaos. By reducing the emotional charge they have permission to feel, and you provide tools to help them to bring themselves back from confusion into orbit. Thank you for helping us to keep perspective at this time.
Tammy Beira, Talent Partner, Bowmans
Your sessions are on the mark and we have had really good feedback. It is a pleasure to promote you to other organisations because the quality of your work speaks for itself.
Dharshni Padaychee, Transformation, Inclusion and Equality Director, Rand Merchant Bank, May 2020
There are some amazing tools here. For us, the most impactful outcome was that these tools are not just for the period of Covid-19, they should form the context of how we see every day going forward. Thank you again Nikki.
Gary Botha, Group CEO and Ian Wright, Group Head Marketing, Kyalami Schools, April 2020
