The Learning Curve Podcast first broadcast in June 2014 in the United Arab Emirates. The show's focus from 2014 - 2017 was Women Entrepreneurs of the Middle East. For 3 years we shared the stories of awesome women working and living in the MENA (Middle East & North Africa). We shared their business stories and discussed how they achieved their goals and what kept them going. In the 3 years the show was listened too across 99 countries and had over 150,000 downloads.
In 2017 the show closed while Nicholla, the host moved countries and decided how the show was going to progress. Nicholla moved to England which brought the opportunity to have a chapter change to the show and discover new topics and audiences.
Nicholla has been an expat all her life. She was, (what we are often referred to as)’ ‘a third culture child’ and now a third culture adult. She knows what it’s like to be an expat and has helped and shared lots of tips and guidance to expats that are planning to be expats or have joined their host city. Nicholla has always been curious to understand the why and how's of people's chosen professions. Her keen interest social media, community, networking and podcasting has been brought together under ‘The Learning curve podcast’ so she can connect with and share the stories of women entrepreneurs from the Middle East with those around the globe. Women entrepreneurs in the region are an eclectic bunch with a sense of adventure yet a strong ambition to have build businesses and follow through with thier entrepreneurial bug.
Nicholla started her podcast career in radio back in 2011 while living in Muscat, Oman. She hosted a radio show on a local morning radio show called 'Mums on Monday'. This was a weekly morning show covering mother and child related topics for Muscat. During her time on the show she interviewed topics about birth and pregnancy, family concerns, local omani women entrepreneurs and local charities. Nicholla left the show in the summer 2013 because she was moving back to the United Arab Emirates with her husband's job.
Nicholla now continues the work she started and continues to be a voice in the community. She loves connecting with successful and motivational people and find out more about their successes, achievements and their challenges. She says, 'Doing podcasting allows me to share my conversations with the community. As an expat we are always looking for help with answers and this is our way of connecting with like minded individuals. There is something to be said about the power of the human voice and how it can convey a much stronger message than the written word. I just love it’.
