What People Are Saying

After presenting to over 100,000 people and sharing the stages with some of our leading thought leaders like Richard Branson (Virgin), Dr. Demartini (The Secret) and many, many others ranging from small corporate engagements with fortune 500 companies to audiences of 8,000 or more, I have seen a lot of speakers and trainers and audiences.  In fact, we train trainers and know what to look for.  If you are looking for someone who will engage and be provocative and compelling, I recommend Nikki Buckelew as a trainer.  You will be happy that you brought her in and that you made the right choice.  She rocks!

After sponsoring Nikki at a number of events it's become obvious to our team that her knowledge and vast experience are invaluable. She is an impressive speaker and commands the respect of her audience by way of her years of experience and constant industry education. She not only monitors current trends and demographics, but also shares a wealth of business knowledge which translate quickly to action and results.

The proof of effectiveness is kind of like going on a fabulous trip. If when asked would you go again and you answer immediately "yes" you know the destination was terrific. We at Integrity can say with confidence Nikki will be back again...as a matter of fact we will be having her return in October!

Three things stand out in my mind about Nikki. First, she has a unique ability to connect individually with people in a large group training environment that keeps it real for all involved. This assessment is not only my personal observation, it is the feedback from my team as well.

The next attribute is her intuition to cut through the masks that someone may have up that even they are not aware of. Since she is able to help them self-discover and get to the root cause rather than dealing with the symptom, true learning takes place.

The final thing that speaks so loudly to me is how deeply she cares about supporting her clients to get the results they say they want. Her deep caring is a reflection of her non-judgmental attitude toward people, allowing them to become their best.

Thank you for  the pleasure of recommending Nikki and Chris Buckelew as trainers, coaches, and speakers in the areas of business, real estate, and transformational life work.

The Buckelews hired me as their coach in 2002 or 2003. They were young up-and-coming real estate agents closing about 80 transactions per year in a small Oklahoma City, OK market and aspiring to do more. I was commissioned to be their guide in getting them to the place where they could sell their business and move to Florida where they would live on the water and become coaches and trainers.

Chris and Nikki accomplished their dream in 2005 when they sold their business in Oklahoma and began touring the gulf states as leaders in their real estate franchise. I am now honored to recognize them as peers and highly regarded coaches and trainers who are passionate about helping others achieve their dreams.

You will find them to be engaging, authentic, inspiring, and well-versed in all areas of business. They are true professionals, showing a great deal of humility, successes, fun and a true appreciation for each and every student.

I worked with Nikki for several weeks from October through November of 2010.  Her training sessions were intense, direct, highly focused, accountable, and without a doubt the best overall coaching experience I’ve ever had either as a salesperson or as a business owner.  First, I respected Nikki because she had real selling experience and could relate to the day-to-day grind of prospecting and being on the street generating business.

Second, she has the rare gift to be able to take her selling experiences and to repackage them into a coaching program which is first in class compared to other programs I’ve tried.  Third, Nikki’s delivery is nothing short of a revival experience – it’s easy to get into what she is saying, get energized, and to do the assignments and tasks she assigns.

As a direct product of my experience with Nikki, my year to date revenue as of July 2011 has surpassed what I completed in all of 2010.

To say that I recommend TopSide coaching would be an understatement.  Nikki gave me just the kick in the pants that I needed.  Nikki turns average agents into exceptional salespeople.  My only regret is that I didn’t know her sooner!
