As the only motivational speaker in Europe to have been awarded Speaker of the Year from both The Academy for Chief Executives and Vistage (formerly known as The Executive Committee), Nigel is a respected author, television presenter and a prolific speaker. He speaks with authority: his own life having veered perilously away from comfortable norms at times. He has learned - the hard way - that positive results can come from negative experiences, and that we often learn best from situations which are unfamiliar and even uncomfortable.
As one of the youngest CEO's of a financial services company in the City of London, Nigel knows business as well as he knows life and more importantly he knows what it takes to lead a successful business! Unlike other motivational speakers or consultants, he has the ability to translate - with electrifying effect - that hands on experience into a coherent, compelling and exciting philosophy, which has made him one of Europe's leading key note speakers and a powerful professional one-to-one coach to some of the world's leading business executives.
Today he conducts more than 150 motivational seminars and corporate speaking engagements a year for an enormous variety of companies and organisations in Britain and overseas. When he isn't travelling Nigel lives with his wife and two children in Hertfordshire.
Nigel is an accomplished author with many successful self-help books, CD collections and instructional guides to his credit. His books "You had me at Hello" - the new rules for better networking - and "It's a zoo around here" - the new rules for better communication - have sold in their thousands and are literally transforming lives all around the world. His latest book The IMPACT Code is setting a new standard for self-help guides…this one actually works!
Nigel appeared in a business documentary for C4 in 2007 and continues to appear on prime time chat shows, such as Richard & Judy and makes many radio appearances all around the world.
