Nick brings together an unusual background as a conductor in classical music with extensive studies in leadership, behaviour, psychometrics and cognitive therapy. He helps individuals and teams find their passion, draw out the best in each other, and create sustainable intelligent organisations. He has taught at Trinity College Melbourne and NEOMA Business School Paris.

His special interest is in helping individuals unlock their inner potential to move from good to great – a passion he developed working with orchestras in masterclasses in many places throughout the world. Clearly technical skills and mastery of the score in music are not enough to create the ‘magic’ that separates the truly exceptional from the routinely mediocre. A variety of other factors are at play, from deep motivation, group energy and dynamics, to a variety of micro-behaviours that all massively impact the outcome. He believes the same is true in business leadership.
