“When we initially appointed Nicola to conduct an independent review of our marketing function, we didn’t anticipate the depth of understanding of our business – and our challenges – that she would be able to ‘get’ in a relatively short period of time. The combination of her informed objectivity, ability to build quick rapport with our team, and fearlessness to ask the difficult questions (and challenge assumptions) allowed us to get right to the core of how our function was working and what needed to change to make us fit for the future. On her suggestion, we’re now implementing an innovative, highly collaborative, and cost-effective way of delivering our business objectives using agile methodology and I’m delighted that Nicola is still helping us with our change journey.” Polly Troughton – Head of Retail Markets, Landsec plc
“Nicola played a fundamental role in planning and executing our business growth over a two year period. She joined as a business development advisor and quickly took on the role of Associate Commercial Director, shaping our business plan and working closely with me on every aspect of the company. With Nicola’s support, Thwaites had its two most successful years to date and we continue to follow her advice in many areas as we take the company into its next phase of development. Nicola is sharp and energetic; she offers sensible, honest advice and isn’t afraid to challenge. If you want a ‘yes’ woman, don’t hire Nicola. If, on the other hand, you want someone who will push you to excel, clear up all the excuses you may be making for not fulfilling your business potential, and coach you towards committed decisions and long-lasting results, Nicola is very definitely the woman for the job!” Emma Thwaites – CEO, Thwaites Communications
“Nicola helped transform my business and my thinking! I can highly recommend her services for business growth.” Carla Garey – MD, Saffron Catering
