Speaking

Storytelling is what makes humans, human. It's that vital connective tissue. It's how we learn lessons, how we educate, edify, inspire, and inform how we move through the world. Public speaking is an extension of storytelling.

Storytelling is what makes humans, human. It's that vital connective tissue. It's how we learn lessons, how we educate, edify, inspire, and inform how we move through the world. Public speaking is an extension of storytelling. In addition to giving various book talks and readings at book events and on tours, I have also been a panelist, presenter, and guest speaker at conferences such as Massachusetts Conference for Women, Mom 2.0 Summit, The Muse & the Marketplace, BlogHer, and Connecticut Authors and Publishers Association. I am a mentor and an Ambassador for The Village for Families and Children in Hartford, CT, too, which includes being available to speak to groups on subjects such as mentorship and how to attract (and retain) "millennials" to the workforce. And I look forward to an opportunity to speak at your corporation, college, conference, or event. For speaking inquiries, please contact me directly.  

We were thrilled to have Nicole speak at the 2016 Massachusetts Conference for Women, which is a high-profile yearly event attended by over 13,000 people. It’s no surprise that Nicole is a confident, knowledgable, professional speaker, but she also has great warmth and a caring nature that quickly become obvious to anyone who meets her. I believe that to be a rare and special combination. In my position, I see hundreds of speakers each year, but Nicole stands out. I highly recommend her for any event needing an authentic, personable, and creative voice. She really is a delight.

Presenter was prepared, personable, gracious, engaging, and thorough.”

”Great presentation and the content was very impactful. Made me think a lot about how I’m approaching my characters.”

”This was one of my favorite workshops all weekend.”

”Nicole was great, and really funny. Hard to keep up energies at that stage but she did it well.
