Who am I?
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 beautiful 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.
Why I Do What I Do
This purpose combined with a passion for software development my parents ignited in me when they brought me a ZX Spectrum for Christmas in 1981, has enabled me to build a successful, rewarding and long career in technology.
In 2015, I fell out of my love for my career because my role had changed and no longer aligned with my purpose.
After taking some time out and training as a life and executive coach with the Coaching Academy, I realised I could spend 100% of my time following my purpose and passion by helping other leaders in I respect achieve their success. So, I started my coaching business.
SOME FUN FACTS ABOUT ME
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.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Nick to anyone who is looking to challenge and improve themselves whilst staying true to who the want to be.
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.
