What others have to say...

“Hands up if you think you are creative?' That is a question that usually leads to me putting my hands firmly on the ground! But, after a session with Nikie Forster of Curious Lighthouse, I was thinking completely differently........ Enlightening and motivating, I am now kidding myself I can be a NASA Astronaut, have a new desk buddy called 'Daisy Duck' and am the proud owner of this beautiful lighthouse... Thank you Nikie for such an informative session.”

Laura Macarthy MICB - Certified Bookkeeper & Director at Now Bookkeeping Ltd

“Nikie is passionate about people development and played a significant role in building my skills and confidence, enabling me to take the next step with my career. Nikie makes learning about yourself and setting personal goals challenging, but also fun and relevant for the training industry. For anyone looking to establish or develop a career in training, I recommend working with Nikie to get you where you want to be.”

Teresa Matthews ~ Training and Development Manager ​

“The Curious Trainer’s Academy has supported my own development and Nikie continues to provide guidance. Her interactive and engaging approach on her training sessions covers all types of learning styles and also gives you the opportunity to try out and practice. Her bitesize learning approach is very easy to follow from a learner’s perspective. I can’t thank Nikie enough for all of her support and help in moulding me into the professional trainer I am today and would highly recommend having a chat with Nikie and enrolling on some of the courses. ”

Suk Gill - Director of The Sales Coach Ltd.
