Other guests in the series include:
– Shelly Horton talking about her career in the media and choosing not to have children;
– Kate Morris, CEO and founder of Adore Beauty on starting her own business from her garage from scratch;
– Academic Dr Susan Carland, on how being an academic with a message that Islam can be feminist; and
– Nova Peris on growing up in the Northern Territory to her Olympic achievements and providing a voice in parliament for indigenous people.
Announcing the podcast, Grant Tothill, Head of PodcastOne said “These are inspirational interviews. Dr Nikki is a natural interviewer and the listener is left with a fantastic set of stories that will motivate them for success and give them the strength to overcome barriers in their own life and work.”
Dr Nikki said “It was an honour to talk to all of these women who have achieved great things. They shared so much wisdom and I finished every interview feeling like we could all take on anything we wanted to. It’s a feeling I hope the listener gets after hearing each inspirational woman.”
