Hi, I'm Dr. Nicole Garneau

In business, as in life, it’s the difficult topics that risk driving us apart. But when we come together around a common starting point, we find that instead of walls, we can build bridges. There is arguably nothing more satisfying in bringing people together than food and drink. Everyone eats, and it is a unifying force for tackling even the most difficult of topics. Hi, I’m Dr. Nicole , and I use taste science to make difficult topics fun, accessible, humorous and interactive, all in demonstration that you are unique to what you bring to the table, and by appreciating this in yourself and in others, you can do great things.

As a successful woman in science, a serial entrepreneur, CIVICO Governors Fellow, and a proud Coloradoan (with Maine roots), I have learned to use a humorous and heartfelt interplay of science, vulnerable storytelling, and effective tools to bring people together as a foundation for solving our hardest problems. Reach out to me today to learn about how I can help you and your team at your next event, and help your audiences to achieve their goals of self-actualization, team empowerment, and in doing so move forward on their goals, and create a lasting impact.
