Founder: Love Out Loud
Nicole is known as a multi-award winning social entrepreneur, but she prefers to be seen as an unstoppable messenger of love and human potential; impacting millions of people world-wide with her unconventional models of community development and transformation. Currently Nicole is the CEO of a global movement, Love Out Loud, which aspires to engage 350 million people by the end of 2020, to successfully facilitate the world’s largest love-based movement.
When Nicole was 18 years old, she established a Not-for-Profit that worked in youth mental health and community capacity building, engaging tens of thousands of young people across Australia and the UK, in unconventional conversations of vulnerability, self-love, vision and connection. This was inspired after a terrifying lived experience with anorexia nervosa. After completing a significant national tour, at 20 years old, Nicole was a finalist for the Young Australian of the Year and listed as one of Australia’s top 100 most influential women at 21, shortly after taking out the Pride of Australia Medal. She's been featured in The Financial Review, made the cover of the Yellow Pages and had a documentary aired on prime-time national TV.
Nicole has made a vast impact in the health and education landscape in Australia, and served as the youngest Commonwealth Commissioner for Health in history, advising directly to the Australian Federal Health Minister and Prime Minister.
Nicole has pursued a successful career in speaking across tens of countries and recently has taken years of experience in corporate/political consultation, experiential facilitation and complex community work and launched her debut book 'Love Out Loud; making this process accessible and easily applied to any community or individual.
