I am grateful for the opportunity to consult with Nicole Rousseau in preparation for my TEDx talk. I was impressed that before our initial conversation she had researched my previous speeches online and had some helpful feedback for me from the start. During our Skype sessions, she was able to zone in on the areas that I had not fully flushed out, needed emphasis, or were not clear. Also, she helped me appreciate the art and theater of delivering an engaging speech by using voice, energy, movement, storytelling, humor, and gestures to get the message across. Overall her concepts and methods sharpened my presentation and enabled me to deliver a clear and meaningful message. I feel grateful to have worked with her and give her my highest recommendation.
If you are uncertain about how to shift your career, whether horizontally or vertically, I recommend asking Nicole. She'll do more than help you find your career. She'll help you find you.
While LinkedIn doesn't have a category for "Inspiration" there should be one for Nicole Rousseau. Her efforts to bring HSBC's sustainable message to the masses was truly inspiring and her case study presentation with Jacquie Ottman was compelling. Great to see smart people acting smart about the environment and making a difference.
Nicole was an influential manager and role model during my time as one of 28 Trainees in the Graduate Development Program. We were the first class to go through a completely new model of the program that Nicole developed to align with the needs of both the organization and entry level talent in the industry. The program not only exposed us to a variety of departments which grew our business knowledge, but also had a unique focus on leadership skills and ongoing development. Nicole consistently provided new opportunities for Trainees to learn and grow in a safe environment that would challenge us and be beneficial in our careers. Her coaching and developmental skills were such that I learned and grew more in just 16 months than in many of my other experiences combined. Nicole was able to manage a large group of entry level employees across the country with very different interests and personalities by standing firm to the vision and strategy of the program while being open to feedback and improvements that would better suit the Trainees and the Business. Her ability to develop such a strong program made HSBC a competitive employer for entry level talent and was apparent by both the backgrounds of the classes that she hired and the significant growth in the retention of Trainees.
Interviewing Nicole for a career guide was wonderful--she was generous with her time, an articulate and insightful interviewee, a passionate advocate for green business, and thoroughly knowledgeable about trends in the marketplace.
Nicole's public speaking coaching was extremely helpful. Over ten sessions, she greatly improved my presentation slides and my ability to deliver them in front of my company's executives. Nicole's advice was all very practical and relatable; she quickly diagnosed what was holding me back and created a plan that worked for me. I highly recommend her!
Thank you, Nicole, for the incredible transformational coaching. I enjoyed our calls and the insights, which helped me to transform my very broad cross-functional vision into a short pitch that clicks. The outcome of our teamwork turned into something I would never have expected. Thanks to you what I have now is a high-level work, appreciative clients, no fear, and financial profits I had ever deserved. It's a total difference compared to when I was just a hired person living paycheck to paycheck. I can't remember any other period in my life where my lifestyle and business were better. In the beginning, you said that some magic would happen during our time, and it certainly did. Now I am ready to a whole new range of challenges and I want to thank you from all of my heart.
