Nisha Kaunda (Ideas Empress)
Nisha is a coach and trainer, and has worked with Optima Training since 2014. She set up her own company when she was 24 with a very clear goal in mind – to make a real difference to people’s lives and deliver personal and professional development training to young people. She has sat on various Boards and Working Groups and chaired the Minority Ethnic Advisory Group’s Independent Stop and Search Committee.
Nisha supported us in the delivery of innovation masterclasses as part of the Government funded GrowthAccelerator Service working with SMEs across the East Midlands. She has co-delivered workshops with Jo Small on observation feedback processes in the Further Education sector as well as a Train the Trainer day on inspirational teaching and learning for corporate trainers.
