Belinda Nicoll is a multi-skilled professional with a diverse copy portfolio in marketing and social media content. As a published author, NLP-certified life coach, and skilled presenter, Belinda possesses excellent verbal and written communication skills. Whether working on her own publications, critiquing creative manuscripts, or producing content for corporate clients, Belinda brings to each project a deep understanding of how to craft a compelling story using sensory-based language, create rapport across diverse mediums, motivate behavior, shape attitudes, and generate change.

 

Belinda is originally from South Africa. She moved to the U.S. in 2001 and has been a citizen since 2010.

Her and her husband’s journeys and careers have taken them through large parts of Southern Africa, the USA, Europe, Ireland, Canada, the Middle East, Mexico, and to exotic islands such as Hawaii, Mauritius, Phuket, The Comores, St. Thomas, St. John, and Gran Canaria.
