Looking for a good book? How about Kindness is Contagious: 100 Stories to Remind You God is Good and So are Most People now available on Amazon and at a variety of local bookstores!

One of my greatest joys is the opportunity to speak to groups about kindness. I’m always happy to tailor the message to fit the needs of your organization, but here are a few of my most popular presentations, plus a 3 minute keynote speaking sample, to get you started…

Courageously Kind: What happens when you step out of your comfort zone and live life COURAGEOUSLY KIND? From spending childhood Saturdays in a prison visiting my mom’s husband, to experiencing the joy that comes with forgiveness, to fighting breast cancer with kindness, I love to share the transformation that happened in my own life when I made a career out of writing about Kindness– and living life courageously kind!

Created for Kindness (Christian audience): Kindness is like a secret passageway through which God takes care of others and us. Only it’s not much of a secret– it’s all over the Bible. For every act of kindness we commit, God promises a reward. “Those who are kind benefit themselves…” Proverbs 11:17

In her Created for Kindness speaking presentation, Nicole Phillips explores the possibility that we are not only commanded to be kind, but indeed created for that very purpose! We were created to be kind, but it’s awfully hard to find our stride in life when we refuse to step into our eternal purpose. Your group will leave Nicole’s presentation feeling hopeful that there is indeed much they can do to create light in a dark world while adding great joy to their own lives.

Created for Kindness (secular audience): What if there really were a secret to happiness well within our grasp? Perhaps there is! We often think of kindness as something that flows from our surplus: our extra time, extra energy or extra resources, leaving us to ask, “How can I possibly give to others when I don’t have enough for myself?”

In her Created for Kindness speaking presentation, Nicole Phillips explores the chain reaction that happens within our bodies when we lead with kindness. While it seems like it should be entirely altruistic, study after study proves that the greatest benefits of kindness are actually in store for the giver.

Here’s what people had to say:

“The women are still talking! Nicole Phillips made a lasting impression on all of us. Her heart and her words challenged us to realize that our words and acts of kindness do make a difference. Nicole added so much to this year’s 2017 WOMEN CELEBRATE conference.” -Jessie Hietpas, Conference Coordinator

“We enjoyed Nicole immensely.  She has a very charismatic personality.  She made everybody feel like they’d known her all their life and was easy to talk to.  People enjoyed her a lot.” -Marci Lind, FM Christian Women’s Group

“Nicole did a wonderful job, you could tell she loves sharing her experiences and she spoke from the heart… Nicole is an excellent speaker and I highly recommend her!” -Kim Sheldon, Altru Cancer Center
