“I think you’re a great enabler, you encourage people to believe in themselves to the point at which they believe their dreams are possible. I remember one of your quotes and say it to myself often, “There are greater forces at work than market forces”. Oh, so true. You lead people to a place where they can see the limitations they believed were in place in their lives were nothing more than illusions of their own creation and that the real truth is that there are endless opportunities for a rich and fulfilling life.”

- Liz Trubridge, the executive producer of Downton Abbey

“Nick presented ILM’s most successful Leadership Masterclass to date, ‘Unleash your inner brilliance’. We normally attract around 20 people per Masterclass but for Nick’s event we had 75! Nick tackled that part of individuals that much of the leadership literature doesn’t; the inner self and spark that lies in all of us. He goes right to the heart of what makes people tick – showing individuals how they can unlock their passion, tap into their leadership skills and become more successful. On top of that Nick is lovely to work with – he’s a high quality professional with a big heart and tonnes of insight to boot.”

- Helen Oldfield, Head of Marketing, the Institute of Leadership & Management
