Speaking 1: Leadership & performance

Nigel has a highly engaging, enthusiastic and entertaining style. He speaks all over the world on two themes: 1) leadership and performance, and 2) leadership moments from history.

Nigel’s leadership and performance speaking is grounded in his own personal experience of leading both in business and in the voluntary sector. He draws extensively on his experience on boards and of chairing six companies, his mentoring of hundreds of leaders, mainly CEOs and MDs, as well as his work in leadership consultancy.
