I have always been impressed with Nigel's ability to focus on the things that really matter. He has the great ability to sort through all of the complexities and matrix elements of any organisations and get the right stuff done.  He has a very empathic and yet provocative style that endears the listener to engage with his examples and anecdotes. You get a real feeling that Nigel has experienced these things first hand, and succeeded, rather than learned it from a text book or watching others. Every time I have had the pleasure of listening to him it has stretched my thinking towards a new tangent of practical thinking and a new action that has benefitted me personally.

On Track International

I have always found him to be a rare creature in HR. He focuses on the business need before leaping to a solution but when he does, and he does leap, he does so in a way that simplifies the complex in a language that makes sense to everyone. He connects with people through his wit, open personality, professionalism and deep practical experience

Centre for HR Excellence Henley Business School

We were very happy with how everything went with Nigel. He positioned his content and style of delivery just right for our level of audience and had the right balance of being conversational, humorous yet professional. I was really happy with the strength of the content and the feedback was all very positive from our audience. Please pass on our thanks to Nigel for his contribution to making our event a success.

Manpower Group

I have found him to be a very well-informed and engaging speaker. He has extensive business experience across sectors and has an ability to present to audiences from all levels of management. He has that rare talent to present complex issues with clarity, wit and insight. I highly recommend him.
