Here’s a big hearty welcome – this online space is where I share my varied contributions with the world as a Performing Heartist (which encapsulates my story-weaving, poetry, MCing, Keynote Talks, Hosting, facilitating and many other ways I share my heart – on stage, screen and in person).
Great Bliss is found when we share joy with another
In a nutshell: I am a Zimbabwean born, Southern African, world-traveling Story Weaver, Performing Heartist and Thrive Coach. I am passionately supporting folks to thrive and live the joyfully wonder-filled lives of their dreams. My clients vary from young leaders across all creeds, to corporate teams and even the littlest young humans – as I often enthuse joy as early childhood development programs too.
To thrive – is to live in a way where all wins
My latest two projects are co-creations – there’s the Story Of Unconditional Love (SOUL) Circus ,which creates immersive thrive experiences for active citizens to be the change, and the brand new Real TV Docu-series – THRIVORS -21days from Survivor to Thrivor, both were piloted in 2019 and the story will be revealed on Screens in 2020.
“I believe we are all part of one awesome miracle called life, and I celebrate being part of the SOULution. I deeply care, enthuse joy and play with the loVe I have for ALL beings and all things, and remain committed to ways that expand our ability to thrive and love more. I’m actively co-creating ways and spaces where unity, loVe, peace and ease and grace is the norm for ALL! I see our future where ALL are thriving, living in the WIN WIN WINS. I win, others win and our world wins – all together!”Nicola Jackman
Here’s a little bit more of a bio on my workings in this world:
Nicola has taken her Soap Opera acting journey from Isidingo in 1998, to much greater levels on stage and screen, where she continues to be a popular Story Weaver, MC & Keynote Speaker of choice. From conferences to board rooms – she travels internationally enthusing joyous delight as an MC, or with her keynote talks (see her TedXCapeTown Talk – Here), story weaving sessions, “Popuptheatre”, her spoken-word UV show “LooneyVerse” and her acclaimed one woman family show and book “MAfrika”
Nicola is also a Thrive coach and joy catalyst – as the founder of The UPliftment Programme (www.theup.org.za) a successful South African rooted charity inspiring humanKIND to practice being both human and KIND, they’ve trained up hundreds of volunteers – who share love and joy in homes and hospitals – bringing emotional care to those that need it most. This focus on joy – gave Nicola the awesome opportunity of being a TedX Cape Town speaker in 2014. She was also one of Glamour Magazine’s Women of the Year in 2013 and in 2015 she became a global ambassador of kindness.
“I’ve been a performing heartist for most of my life, professionally on stage & screen for 24 years and my stand for humanKIND has me MCing, coaching and mentoring for the past 15 years too. I love encouraging good people to live joyfully thriving lives. I share tools in groups and in person and I’m grateful to have supported hundreds of individuals to live happier and healthier lives .
Thanks for taking the time to pop-in… I appreciate how our times are changing and how many of us are uniting to co-create a new story for all, a peace-loving, joyous, unified world.
