Nikki Bonus is a change agent on a global frontier aiming to enhance the vital skills of our future leaders. She realised focusing on our future generations teaching social, emotional and physical learning skills was a real opportunity to make an impact. She is an accomplished presenter and trainer with more than 20 years experience in the development and delivery of mindfulness, leadership and wellbeing programs. Nikki comes with raw authenticity and believes that we have a social responsibility to our young people to equip them with the skills to navigate the 21st
She epitomises resilience having been out of home by the age of 16. The tragedies of mental health contributed to her brother taking his life at a young age. Her intrinsic motivation is the belief that no matter where you were born, no matter what family you were born into, anything is
possible. Her aim is to work in collaboration with governments, school communities to see social emotional learning as valued as academic performance.
Thus, Life Skills Group was founded, out of the heart of a social entrepreneur with a mission to reach all children regardless of socio-economic background. For more than a decade, Nikki’s team of 80 teachers has worked across 600 schools, reaching 500,000 primary school children, to build a continuing evidence base of what works for school communities. In 2016, Nikki founded Life Skills Go: an engaging, interactive online platform that produces measurable results for teachers to monitor and respond to individual student needs.
