Motivational speaker and supporter of NMiTE, Vikki Thomas held a talk in front of about 100 students about self-awareness and self-confidence and what it takes to succeed in challenging environments at HSFC. She has been in business for over 20 years as global business strategist, multiple business owner and a Chartered Surveyor. She worked in a broad variety of different industries, starting off with catering, then property management, going on to motivational speaking. Vikki had found early on in her career that the male dominated environment could be discouraging, or even alienating. After these bruising encounters, Vikki found herself putting an abrasive wall around herself. In the following years, she learnt to overcome these negative experiences. Now she is willing to share her story and teach the arts of self-confidence and self-love to others. She specialises in helping teenage girls and she has been called the “transformational guru for women and teenage girls”. Her passion and mission is to support, guide, grow, nurture and lead successful, ambitious women and girls.
