Booking Information


"Nicki was superb at a recent launch event we managed for our property client. She arrived well briefed and completely looked the part – definitely adding the glamour of a TV presenter to our event. Nicki also spent a lot of time getting to know more about our client, and when speaking to event visitors was impressively ‘on message’ for us whilst still coming across in a very natural and accessible manner. It was lovely to see how our event visitors were already so fond of Nicki from seeing her TV shows, they really did warm to her and she did a great job making them feel a bit special at our event."

Absolute PR and Marketing

"Nicki Chapaman engaging, kind and interested with all the visitors and staff at our event, but she was also genuinely interested in the details about our properties and our offer. It certainly wasn’t a superficial interest, she really wanted to understand what we were about and it was a joy to hear her chatting to our visitors later on about the appeal and benefits of our properties. Nicki’s involvement definitely helped contribute to making our launch a great success."

Renaissance Villages

"Nicki Chapman’s enthusiasm and naturally engaging charisma captivated our young female equestrian athletes as she told her story of starting in the PR Industry and then going on to manage household names in the music industry as well and carving a successful career in the media. The consummate professional, Nicki researched her audience and the requirements of our brief and delivered a key note presentation that will have had a lasting positive impact on this group of riders."

British Equestrian Federation

"Nicki was absolutely fabulous at our recent Business Awards evening, we couldn’t have asked for a better person for the job! Her speech was interesting, engaging and motivational – it was exactly what we were looking for and it was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Nicki was very personable and made a huge effort to be friendly to everyone. She really made our award winners feel very special. Nicki was a pleasure to work with and we would love to see her again!"
