Nick draws on his extensive and varied experience as a diplomat, a partner and executive in a professional services firm and a director of several small businesses to mentor and advise a range of individuals and enterprise, both for profit and pro bono.
Middle Eastern experience and expertise
His particular speciality is supporting companies that are developing business in the Middle East. Nick is an Arabist and spent 15 years living and working in the region, including in Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Iraq, Jordan and Egypt. As a result he has extensive knowledge of the intricacies of operating in that part of the world, and a senior and well-connected network to draw upon, whether for business development and investment generation, or fact-finding and due diligence.
Mentoring and support
Beyond his Middle East advisory work, Nick draws on both his coaching credentials and his personal experience in a range of roles in both public and private sectors to provide personal support and mentoring to senior executives dealing with complex challenges and opportunities. Nick’s approach is unfailingly understanding and supportive, while offering robust and clear yet sympathetic feedback and challenge.
