Nikki‘s professional bio / interests
As founder of Inspire UK and leader of The Inspire Network, I help women connect and collaborate, to help one another achieve their aspirations in business and beyond. "Inspire" as members refer to it, is a network for heart-led, aspirational women that facilitates connection, collaboration and creates opportunities for you to share knowledge, experience and inspiration for your mutual benefit. Inspire helps women to rise, thrive and flourish in their roles as leaders - both in business and beyond. Find out more by checking out our website in the links below.
