Testimonials

In My Corner

Nicole spoke at my church several times [around issues of social justice & sex trafficking, body image for young women, etc.] and I’ve also had the privilege of hearing her speak elsewhere. She’s a gifted communicator and her passion has a way of impacting her listeners in real and powerful ways. I learn something new every time I hear her speak and I always leave inspired.

Nicole Clifton is a gifted speaker who specializes in challenging her audience. She is passionate about students and people, and it shows in the way she approaches each and every talk she gives as she motivates and inspires groups of students. Nicole’s love for people is evident in her emotion and the way she reaches and connects with college kids. I am so excited to see what is next for Nicole. Give her a chance you will not be disappointed.

I have had the honor of knowing Nicole for just about 7 years now. She has come to speak to Options For Senior Living on multiple occasions. Her knowledge is mind-blowing. She helped us understand our different personality types as a team and as an individual. It impacted me in a way I could have never imagined. I learned some things about myself and my personality that has led me to work on myself as an individual but also things I can work on to be a more efficient team player. Her outpouring kindness and ambition is contagious and so motivating.
