HERE’S WHAT NERISSA HAS DONE
She’s a multiple award-winning teacher and storyteller
Humble but explosive (to use a phrase first coined by the late Will Da Real One), she uses her verbal prowess to wrap your mind around the best possible vision for you
She loves to flip the script
A life-long writer, she learned at an early age what great stories FEEL like. They’re always unexpected, and so are her strategic sessions which access the most untapped resource in the corporate world:
BE YOUR OWN ANSWER
Imagine a strategy session where your organization taps its own wisdom. Employees will be onboard because their ideas and your company mission will finally align in this powerful work retreat.
SELF CARE FOR LEADERS
Community based organizations suffer most from two things that threaten sustainability: Founder’s Syndrome, and a fluctuating market. The secret is: only Founder’s Syndrome matters. This session confidentially addresses your founder’s deepest concerns and produces a plan that the board can buy into for the future.
GIRLS CALL THE SHOTS
Teen girls feel they need to commodify their looks and their opinions to fit in, and are the most vulnerable demographic in the world. Their own joy will save them, if we remind them their unique voices are valuable. Private sessions with girl groups are fun, interactive and bring teen empowerment into the 21st century.
WOMEN WHO SPEAK AND WRITE
Nerissa noticed something after speaking at one of the top public innovation conferences in the world. She was one of the few women of color speaking. Although she was happy to share her expertise, she regretted that the other smart women she knew weren’t there with her. This Mastermind group of thought leaders in every industry are organically bringing diverse voices to the table by being invited to speak at high-profile conferences across the globe. Her vision is to bring equity to every industry by equipping women with the tools of influential storytelling.
