Nick’s coaching is the culmination of his eclectic career to date, as he brings together the service of his clients, his creativity, his own entrepreneurial leadership journey and his deep interest in both the human and commercial side of business.

Nick began his career as a professional pianist, working largely in musical theatre in London’s West End, as well as making various TV appearances with the likes of Lionel Richie and Gary Barlow. For much of this chapter, he moonlighted as a strategy consultant with Spectrum Strategy Consultants, working with large international clients to devise critical new media strategies as the importance of the internet emerged. Nick then spent 3 years with a small investment company, initially tasked with analysing early dotcom era business plans and later operating in a business development role for a diverse range of portfolio companies.

In 2003, he co-founded the karaoke company Lucky Voice with Martha Lane Fox, where he continues in a part-time executive role after 13 years as Managing Director. In growing Lucky Voice to become synonymous with high-quality karaoke experiences in the UK and increasingly overseas, Nick created a multi-faceted business which encompasses high-street leisure operations, international franchising, extensive proprietary technology and a B2C digital subscription offering.

Nick’s constant focus on self-development during this period, and his consequent evolution from self-confessed grumpy autocrat to enlightened motivational leader, inspired his move into coaching and continues to inform his approach. His particular passion is helping executives to both discover and implement their own authentic model of effective leadership.
