Nicola Adams OBE

Add To Speakers List

An inspirational British boxer who made sporting history at the Olympic Games, Nicola Adams is regarded as one of the most influential LGBT+ athletes of all time and among the best diversity keynote speakers in the business. After shooting to fame in 2012 by becoming the first female boxing champion at the London Olympics, Nicola never looked back. When booked for your event, she’s able to vividly discuss this historic achievement, inspiring audiences everywhere with her incredible captivating story.

Fighting in the flyweight division, Nicola’s medal haul is extremely impressive. She has won gold at the World Championships, European Championships, Commonwealth Games and, the pinnacle of her career, twice at the Olympics. In 2016 she successfully defender her Olympic title, winning in Rio de Janeiro. This victory meant that she simultaneously held Olympic, World, Commonwealth and European titles – every amateur medal available to her at the time. Openly lesbian, her successes in the ring meant she was the first LGBT+ boxer to ever become Olympic champion. A true sporting trailblazer for the LGBT+ community, as one of the most well-loved diversity keynote speakers around, at all of her speaking events she’s able to discuss her battles with her sexuality, learning to love herself and the pressure she has experienced representing LGBT+ people everywhere on some of the world’s biggest sporting stages. 

In 2017 Nicola became professional, going on to win the WBO interim flyweight title when she defeated the Mexican fighter Isabel Millan a year later. Unfortunately, in 2019 she sustained an eye injury during a fight that forced her into retirement. Continuing her career would have likely resulted in permanent and irreparable damage to her vision, and while she was disappointed to retire after just six professional fights, she was undefeated when she did so. Due to her charismatic, likeable and engaging personality, Nicola has also become a popular television personality. As well as appearing as a pundit at a number of high-profile boxing fights, she’s starred on a variety of primetime shows. In 2020 Nicola made even more history, becoming part of the first-ever same-sex couple to appear on Strictly Come Dancing. However, she sadly had to withdraw after testing positive for Covid-19. 

Regarded as one of the most influential LGBT+ sportspeople to ever come out of the UK, Nicola Adams has the ability to both inspire and entertain when hired as an after-dinner speaker. If you’re on the lookout for one of the best diversity keynote speakers to provide your occasion with a boost, Nicola has you covered. For booking information, contact Evolve today.
