Speaking


Make peace with your body so you transform your life. 

Women, just like you, are conditioned from birth to believe that their bodies must fit into an ever-shifting ideal if they want to experience romantic love, career success, and a happy life. Then, when you struggle to achieve or maintain the unattainable “perfect” body, you’re told to shame yourself, as if you’re the problem. Even when you have a so-called ideal body, you’re still not safe from others’ judgments. 

But you can break up with the nastygram narrative that tells you that you—and your body—are unworthy just as you are. Your worth can never be measured in the mirror.  Learn how to make peace with your body so you can: 

  • be present in your life
  • spend your time, energy, money, and brain space on what really matters to you
  • create a legacy of body acceptance

Keynotes


Nicole C. Ayers offers two transformative keynotes to impact every aspect of your life. 

Keynote 1


Make Peace with Your Body So You Can Be Present in Your Life

You miss the memory-making moments when you’re more worried about how you look than who you’re with or what you’re doing. But it’s not just the memory-making moments that are lost when you’re striving for somebody else’s version of a “good” body. You miss out on your life. 

In this session, Nicole will guide participants through the three-part framework—Awaken. Heal. Live.—so they can live their lives with presence and intention. She’ll provide strategies that can be implemented immediately, along with personal insights and gracious encouragement, so that participants will feel empowered to step onto the body-acceptance path.

Learning Objectives:
  • Discover why it’s critical to teach others how to embrace their bodies
  • Compare how your behaviors match your messages about body acceptance
  • Develop effective strategies to make peace with your own body that you can implement right away
  • Learn the benefits of creating a body-acceptance legacy
  • Acquire actionable tips to help your loved ones begin to accept their bodies

Keynote 2


Mama, You’ve Gotta Do the Work: a Legacy of Body Acceptance

Everyday, often unintentionally, you’re creating a legacy of body acceptance or body shame. You may tell your loved ones that what’s on their inside is more important than what’s on their outside, but unless you’re showing them how to accept their bodies, as they are, then your message sounds like hypocrisy. 

In this session, Nicole illustrates why you must make peace with your own body so you can show your loved ones how to be accepting of theirs.  

Learning Objectives:
  • Define what body acceptance is
  • Debunk body-acceptance misconceptions
  • Awaken to your personal relationship with your body
  • Discover and practice healing strategies to mend that relationship
  • Focus on showing up for the life you want
  • Explore the benefits of being at peace with your body

All keynotes can be customized to meet audience needs. 

 Keynotes can be delivered in person or virtually.

Nicole was a speaker for my company’s monthly Culture Club meeting on Google Meets. She was very easy to communicate with leading up to the event, prompt in her time arriving early to discuss any details before it started, and had no technical difficulties. 

Nicole shared her framework for working on self-love with your body and also was able to relate it to how we might apply the framework with our health-coaching clients as well.  

She did an excellent job engaging everyone in a virtual environment (which is not always an easy task) and gave thoughtful and meaningful responses to questions at the end.  

I would recommend Nicole for any virtual or in-person speaking experience, or even an interactive workshop.
