She Says Events

Nicola and Paula created She Says Events to provide a platform for courageous, badass women to share their incredible knowledge, stories and wise words with the world.

Women are drowning in an ocean of shoulds; relentlessly being held up against an ideal that is almost impossible to achieve. We are expected to be slim, fit and forever young, domestic goddesses, career women and some weird mix of a sex kitten and Mother Teresa.

She Says wants to contribute to the worldwide movement of women supporting women, women teaching women, women believing in women; knowing we are so much better when we connect, rather than compete and compare.


Coach and co-founder Paula Gosney speaks to The Cafe about the ‘Courage, Connection & Badassery’ event.

Motivationalist Turia Pitt has rebuilt her confidence and forged a new career out of a life-changing accident that left her with burns to 60 percent of her body. Now, she's taking her story to NZ for the first time!

We think we want fast cars, big houses and tight butts - when actually the thing we want the most is connection; to feel like we are part of a community that values who we are.

Good’s Natalie Cyra talked to Paula Gosney, the woman behind the upcoming inspiring speaker event Courage, Connection and Badassery.

Nicola Carter gets things done; it’s that simple. She is motivated, organised and focused on creating life-changing events, courses and festivals. Nic is one of the best and most experienced event producers in the country.

Her passion for events was initially as a successful competitor, holding the NZ Secondary Schools Triathlon Title and representing her country.

Leaving Uni with a Degree in Sports Management and a blossoming career in events, public relations and marketing, she was developing brands, opening stores and editing magazines before choosing to partner with her husband in Total Sport; one of New Zealand’s largest event companies that produces 20 sports events annually.

In 2015, Nicola stepped away from the day-to-day operation of Total Sport and shifted her focus to the Arts. She established and led the production team for the Taupo Winter Festival, a four-day arts and entertainment festival—now an annual event.

Belief School and She Says Events are the inevitable and exciting result of such a stellar career. These two platforms give her the vehicle to combine her vast experience with her passion for helping people celebrate their lives. 

Hang out with Nic and it won’t be long till you see what lights her up; her beautiful close family, good people and creating change in the world.
