What they say
Nicolina very recently ran a seminar on becoming a NED, Trustee and Public Appointee for the Senior Lawyers Group - a non-profit organisation for senior Black lawyers. Nicolina managed to make what could be a dry topic into a very exciting learning experience as she walked us through her personal journey to appointment to a range of fantastic roles, whilst sharing practical and actionable tools for the seminar attendees. Nicolina's deep expertise, support and commitment to ensuring more BAME people are able to access these roles shone through and I highly recommend Nicolina's seminar as it is a very impactful way to enable BAME professionals to take a more influential role in society. We are looking forward to having Nicolina speak with us again. (Senior Lawyer)
We invited Nicolina to provide our lawyers with training on life as In-House Counsel. Nicolina is bursting with energy and is such an enthusiastic and engaging speaker. She provided really interesting and thought provoking training with a unique and chatty presentation format that exceeded my expectations. (Partner, City law firm)
Nicolina is certainly a very confident and charismatic person! I thought she presented very well, and her use of the IT (in moving herself across the screen etc) was amazing. The content was interesting and thought-provoking in many parts; and it was certainly a great reminder of how important all the soft skills are in terms of generating trusted relationships. I think it is a session that our junior lawyers would really benefit from (Senior Lawyer, City law firm)
