Nerissa is a professional keynote and transformational speaker who has inspired audiences globally and a two-time international bestselling author of her books Growing Through and A Different Reality. She is also the founder of the ‘Anything Is Possible’ framework and the ‘Speak for IMPACT’ program.
As a migrant, gay woman of colour and a carer for her wife, she is no stranger to crisis and adversity. She is often recognised for her positive energy, rational thinking and calm demeanour under extreme pressure.
Nerissa is committed to coaching and empowering people to share their stories, unlock their true potential and transform both personally and professionally. She believes in growing through — not going through — life, because anything is possible when you are able to be yourself, believe in yourself and back yourself.
