About Us



Nicky is an award winning public speaker, a teacher with international experience in both primary and secondary schools.


She has an unshakable belief that every child has the ability to shine -  whether it is standing with their strong commanding presence or delivering a speech that makes a difference.  She has a confidence that is transferable, an expectation that delivers and a strong belief and passion in her subject. 


Her inspiring, clear, uncomplicated approach to teaching delivers results. 

 She has been an award winning toastmaster for the past seven years and is highly sought after for both creating and delivering speeches and workshops. Having worked in Rome Italy, Perth WA, Mazabuka Zambia, Dublin Ireland and throughout the UK, she has gained valuable experience in teaching primary school children. 


Nicky is the creator of The Mighty Oak® Public Speaking Programme.  Once created, the need for a 'super team' became apparent, and here they are:
