Nicholas Foster

Executive Career & Life Coach
Hello there, my name is Nicholas Foster, and I am an Executive Career & Life Coach.

I spent 15 years as a successful leader at Credit Suisse and UBS. During this time, I built and led global teams of over 300 people, managed complex strategic change programmes of up to $40m and was accountable for one of the most critical trade management systems in the bank.

In parallel to growing this successful career, I got married to my wife Debby and became a dad to two amazing children.

I discovered during my career that to feel complete and happy as a man I needed to feel successful doing work I enjoyed, have time, energy and presence to build a great relationship with my family and spend time with my mates and on activities that energised me. My mission is to enable like-minded dads to do the same.

My clients typically come to me with the following challenges -

• They're burnt out and spend all their time at energy work while their family gets what’s left, which is not a lot and it’s putting a strain on their relationships.

• They no longer enjoy their work but are stuck in analysis paralysis on what to do next.

• They are struggling to find the time and energy to invest in their professional growth so they can continue to build on their success.

It does not have to be this way; my coaching programs are designed to help you overcome these challenges so you can bring back your best to all areas of your life.

Take a small step towards this by booking a short call at a time suitable for us both so we can discuss your challenge and I can give you some short term advice.

Nicholas is an excellent mentor and coach. Using his wealth of management experience, he has helped me drive my career and overcome challenges that I face.

Nick is an incredible mentor and coach. Having worked in his team at Credit Suisse and learning from his leadership and people skills, I am glad he has considered coaching through his venture ‘Develite’. I have been following his blogs and it has helped me a lot and I highly recommend people to read them and connect with Nick to receive his coaching for personal and professional development.

Nick’s coaching helped me stop feeling completely overwhelmed by workload and shown me how I can take a calm step by step approach to decide what I need to achieve and then work out a logical order of tasks to get there.
