​ "Nikky ran interactive storytelling sessions at our Playful Learning Conference and Community Learning Festival, July 2016. The sessions were initially aimed at adults but Nikky was flexible when young children also wanted to join in. Nikky has a way of making her audience lose themselves in her stories and makes the sessions interactive enough to personalize the experience without putting pressure on people to be more involved than they want to be. We had great feedback from everyone that attended the sessions and some related it to a form of meditation. People generally came out of Nikky’s storytelling tent feeling relaxed and happy. We will definitely invite her to take part in future events."
