Nikki Nanos has worked in the theater and film industry for over 30 years as an actress, teacher, field producer and director. She knows what speaks to audiences, how to grab their attention and spark their emotions. As an actress and director, Nikki brings that communication knowledge of film and stage to associations and corporations in her keynotes.
Just as Nikki pulled the very best from her actors on stage and in film, she knows what it takes to develop a rapport with celebrities like Tony Bennett, Ella Fitzgerald or yes even a member of the Royal family. Nikki understands the components it takes to make you a Rock Star communicator.
As a keynote speaker, Nikki has been described as “a firecracker of inspiration” … let her fire up your next event or meeting.
What are you throwing out there? – Are you a Pebble irritating others; a Rock Communicator or a Boulder who bulldozes over people’s ideas? What vibes we give off, rub off. If your organization is rubbing people the wrong way, it will struggle to exist, retain great people and have you looking for the antacid. This presentation will help you discover communication strategies that work.
Looking Through Your Lens of Communication – Are your employees overexposed, underexposed or just out of focus? It takes great communication to bring people together, build better relationships, create trust and make a good movie. You can continue to make B-Movies or you can build a team that understands how to make a great movie.
Nikki’s presentation took a serious topic of organization membership that every one of us is concerned with – and gave us clear, authentic strategies to use. Some of her life examples were dazzling – no one has those experiences that she has had with celebrities. though these examples were NOT about the celebrity – but about the importance of communication, connection and collaboration. I couldn’t keep my eyes off of Nikki because I wasn’t sure if she was going to be insanely silly one minute or unbelievably astute and inspiring the next.
