Nick works at the intersection of communication, creativity and business.
As a Senior Consultant at Impact Factory, Nick has worked with all manner of clients, ranging from financial organisations like ING, Schroders and Permal, to creative companies such as DigitasLBi and Bossa Studios. He has created large-scale trainings for companies including Britvic and Roche, and also worked with not-for-profit organisations such as Mind and Nesta.
What’s most important to Nick is that the new tools and techniques explored during a training session are tangible and relevant, and that they are practical enough for delegates to use straight away; if the work is too theoretical, it rarely makes it back to the ‘real world’, and it’s unlikely to engage people or inspire change. With a working style of clarity, passion and humour, Nick is determined to make every training session hit its mark with each individual in the room.
Nick studied English at Cambridge and acting at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. He played the lead role in a big budget Greek-Hispanic co-production about the artist El Greco. Over the last ten years, as well as working as a trainer, he set up, raised finance for and currently runs a feature-film script development fund. Dead In A Week (or your money back), starring Tom Wilkinson, was shot in Q1 2017 and is currently in post-production. He graduated from the Faber Academy and has recently finished his first novel; he is represented by United Talent Agency and The Feed will be published by Headline in the UK and HarperCollins in the US in January 2018. A TV adaptation is in the works.
Bringing together his years as a trainer and experience at the business-end of the creative industries, in his work at Impact Factory Nick specialises in Project Management, Creative Strategic Thinking, Influencing and Negotiation Skills, Media Skills, Customer Service, Assertiveness and Storytelling, as well as one-to-one and group Leadership work and developing and running Impact Factory’s week-long Elite programme, Presentation With Impact.
