“Innovate Your Career was an incredibly worthwhile investment into improving both my career and personal life. Since the workshop, I have managed an art auction and landed an acting gig, which were made possible by the transformative tools introduced in the workshop and uncovering my inspiring vision.

This is brilliantly run by Nicki and Alison in a safe, fun, fulfilling, non-judgmental, supportive and engaging way with terrific results! I reached places I’ve never reached before and they made it simple.

I cannot recommend it highly enough!”

“Nicki and Alison both know their stuff and the way they ran the session was a clear example of how focused and experienced they are to help others create the career they want.

I came to the workshop with no clarity and since then have moved away from a 16‑year career into a field I never thought was possible.

Without the workshop, I would have continued to amble along with no real focus. I am now working in an area I am passionate about and have more energy for my family when I come home each day.

I cannot thank you both enough!”

 “I was on Cloud 9 after the Innovate Your Career workshop. I discovered strengths I never knew I had, which gave me the clarity and confidence to take the next step. I cannot recommend the workshop highly enough!”
