The Accidental Adventurer is not only a journey of adventures but a journey of life, with all its rawness, vulnerability and most of all connections.
Nahla Summers never intended to become an adventurer but after a life event that changed who she was as a person she discovered that the adventures were helping her find herself not again, but for the first time. This book demonstrates the extraordinary power of the mind when everything else fails.
When Nahla started her social movement people laughed, 8 years on, the world now watches to see what she will do next because if she can, then we all can. She has cycled 3000 miles across America having not owned a bike for 20 years, walked 500 miles from South to North England relying on the kindness of strangers and broke a World Record by travelling 5007 miles on an a stand up bike through every city in the UK whilst writing the biggest Strava Art across England in the form of the word ‘Kindness’. Why? Because she is driven not by her own motivation but a message and community that is bigger than her.
Nahla Summers is a cultural change consultant, Point of Light award winner, inspiring author, public speaker, award winner and the driving force behind ‘A Culture of Kindness’ and ’44 Rays of Sunshine’ (Winning Most Inspirational Book 2017). Her story and how she overcame adversity has been inspiring businesses and people around the world.
‘A Culture of Kindness’ is about the powerful theory on how to bring kindness into the workplace and not only be happier and improve wellbeing but also be more productive and therefore profitable. We are looking to change the way people and businesses co-exist by delivering powerful information and training throughtalks, books, podcasts, online course and bespoke training programs to work towards a more sustainable future and stronger teams, individuals and mindsets.
Using the theory and the training program, Nahla and her team transform organisations to ones with higher productivity, improved employee retention, engagement and reductions stress and anxiety in the workplace. Through her talks, she inspires a mindset of positive change in her audiences and organisations.
As well as creating change within businesses, Nahla has set herself the challenge to spread kindness acts globally through sponsored events. Through cycling 3000 miles across America, walking 500 miles from South to North England, and going 5000 miles on an ElliptiGO through every city in the UK making a World Record. She asked people to show their support by simply doing an act of kindness for a stranger rather than sponsor money. Every year she takes on new challenges and every year discovers something new about the power that kindness has on people.
Through theory and research you can find out about how to transform your organisation and leadership skills.
