“If happiness is what we are all seeking then kindness is the action that will get us there.” – Speaker Nahla Summers

A thought leader, World Record holder, social change researcher and Cultural change consultant, she has a talk for every audience that will get them up and interacting or simply inspired by her incredible stories. She reframes the complicated challenges of workplaces and life to give the listeners many ‘ah ha’ moments.

She will deliver through those stories and personal experience talks based on increasing the resilience of the audience, how to reframe the story of mental health and how when we unite together, we can not only change our immediate surroundings but the world as a whole.

Nahla spent 15 years as a senior leader in some of the leading management firms based all over the world. Then the world she knew fell apart and it was the kindness of a stranger that became a catalyst for picking herself back up. From here, she started to research the power of kindness, what kindness really was and she discovered that all the values that are umbrellaed in kindness; Gratitude, Empathy, Integrity, Time, Trust, Connection and Courage were in the most part missing from the organisations she had worked within. She was soon to discover that it was this that was at the root cause of the mental health conversation within workplaces. When we focus on kindness and the values within that we can make lasting change to the workplace culture.

Whilst doing this research, she wanted to see what was happening in the world at large and heard hundreds of stories of kindness. She entwines these into her talks to bring them to life and ensure the audience can see the change they can make is simple.

Aside this, she set up Sunshine People CIC to start a conversation in society about kindness. She has been awarded a point of light award from the Prime Minister for ‘transforming the concept of sponsorship’. After cycling 3000 miles across America and walking 500 miles from South to North England, broke a World Record by travelling 5007 miles on a stand-up bike asking people to show their support by simply doing an act of kindness for a stranger rather than sponsor money. Every year she takes on a new challenge and every year she discovers something new about the power that kindness has on people. These incredible stories from her challenges are weaved in to demonstrate how in fact anyone can build resilience in just a moment.

She has several books, A Culture of Kindness, is a powerful theory of how we can bring kindness into the workplace and not only be happier overall but also improve employee wellbeing. Her theory removes stress and anxiety from workplaces, therefore allowing increased productivity and profitable. The Accidental Adventurer shares the journey of doing the challenges she has completed with a number of inspiring messages running through it that the reader is drawn to as they start to understand that if she can, then they can too.

She is a joy to work with and dear soul that is here on earth with a deep purpose. It has been my great honor to be part of her important works

Fi Munro

Author and speaker.

With her own personal story of triumph over adversity, Nahla delivered a really touching and powerful lesson in resilience and made us analyse the constituent parts of happiness, a central component in the search for the ideal career. The idea of spreading kindness developed through a personal cause that Nahla likes to champion: Sunshine People. This has led her to set herself some personal challenges, each one crazier than the previous one. Within no time, they were eating out of Nahla’s hand, seeking her advice readily to advance themselves.
