Media, Marketing & PR Guru Nicki Bannerman is the host and co-founder of the Influential Women Podcast. We cover all things female, from high profile guest stories to the #metoo movement. Nicki has a passion for human interest stories & sits on the other side of the mic this time as she shares her own. “We actually have a lot of men listeners” she is quick to point out! Launched three years ago on International Women’s day, the Influential Women podcast is about women who have a story to tell, women who have overcome adversity, women who have come through something huge in their life. Some of the topics are hard hitting; grief, divorce, PTSD, abuse, fame, fortune. “I’ve interviewed a lot of celebrities but it’s not all about celebrities. If we can change one person’s day and feel more able to deal with their life then we’ve turned our passion into something.” A background in broadcasting and radio, including training by the BBC set Nicki up well. Jane Garvey was her first guest and that’s when she thought; “Wow. This is really happening”. For the many people that don’t know where to find the strength and the resilience to get themselves through life’s bigger challenges, Nicki and her co-producer are offering help through stories and examples from those that have. “To dig deep, to have associations to build on to get that strength and to then give that strength back to others is such a great thing.” Going through a tough time? Looking for ways to find strength? This podcast could provide some hope and help.
