About me

Hi, my name is Nicole

Chief Courage Officer | Workplace Communications Expert

I’m the Founder and Chief Courage Officer at Neon Shed. I make tough communications easy and bring light to the dark sides of work.

I partner with courageous companies to identify and bring light to the shadows. I provide strategies, tools, training and support for organisations to manage the risk and eliminate bullying and harassment in the workplace.

I have over 18 years experience in communications with 10 years in the work health and safety industry. I’ve worked for both NSW safety regulators, the workers compensation insurer and the workers compensation independent review office. 

I’ve seen the damage poor communication and sweeping problems under the rug can do. I have also witnessed and experienced bullying, sexual harassment, discrimination, poor leadership and mental health stigma – some at the hands of agencies meant to regulate these issues. 

I’m on a mission to bring light to these issues to improve psychological safety, mental health and wellbeing in the workplace.

Get in touch to see how we can work together. 

About Neon Shed

Neon Shed exists to bring light to the 7 dark sides of work and support individuals and organisations to eliminate these issues.

Remember being young and afraid of the dark? In the shadows you were sure you saw a monster… But once you turned the light on, it disappeared. The monster was only a sock, a toy, a shadow.

That’s what I do. I work with companies that understand they have some dark corners and aren’t afraid to bring light in. I provide tools to help name it, claim it and reframe it, and I never shame it.

I shine a light on the issue to lessen the burden and reduce the fear. I provide tools that ensure positive change.

What's important to me

People, planet, community, animals

I’m committed to spreading joy, positivity, meaning and laughter.

I’m always open to collaborating with individuals and organisations on ways we can leverage our skills and add value to the world. 

If you’d like to talk about how we can work together, get in touch.

I acknowledge the Traditional Owners of country throughout Australia and recognise their continuing connection to land, water and culture. I pay respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.

I actively support Indigenous businesses and will provide 1% of earnings to Pay the Rent.
