Nikeata Thompson

Stage Coach / Presenter / Author

Acting, PR & Commercial
What pushed me the most was that I had to realise early what my unique selling point was: my strength lays in bringing people together, so from early on I mediated between dancers and production, even if I wasn't present in the performance or video myself. So I had to create visibility for my work, in 2010 I founded NT AGENCY and went online with my agency website. What followed was simply unbelievable. People became more aware of me, I was taken more seriously and got paid for my work. The career hack is to recognise your strength and use it in a way that makes it unique.
