Nicola Adams OBE

Nicola Adams OBE

Nicola Adams OBE created history at the 2012 London Olympic Games when she became the first female to win an Olympic boxing Gold medal, and she has gone on to earn the title of Great Britain’s most successful female boxer of all time.

In 2016, Nicola achieved what was the proudest moment of her career so far in becoming the first British boxer to successfully defend their Olympic title for almost 100 years. As of 2022, she is the only female boxer in the history of the sport to have won every major title available to her: Olympic, World, European and Commonwealth.

Nicola is one of the most inspiring speakers available; her story of pioneering victory in the ring serves as an inspiration to young women and general audiences alike. Openly gay, Nicola now shares her experiences as an LGBTQ+ speaker for events and touches on the homophobic abuse she has received being in the public eye.

In 2022, Nicola and her girlfriend Ella Baig announced they were expecting their first child together which Ella conceived via IVF and sperm donor.  Their son was born July 2022.

What an amazing role model to us all. Nicola’s unique humility and wonderfully warm personality inspired us all in what is achievable in life with purpose and hard work. The Q&A format was a big success, everyone loved the format. I would wholeheartedly recommend Nicola for the incredible impression she can make, and having so much time for all of us who were star struck with selfies awards.
