I am in the business of helping leaders in banking and finance reach their full highest potential doing the work they enjoy and being recognised for it.

My 1-2-1 coaching programs are bespoke, designed to best suit your needs and based on what works from:

- Fifteen years of experience as a successful technology leader at Credit Suisse and UBS.

- Coaching and mentoring many technology leaders.

- My training as a qualified and accredited coach.

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.

How we work together


Together we will get crystal clear on what you want to achieve in both your career and life


Using both mentoring and coaching, we will co-create strategies that will allow you to get to where you want to be in the fastest time.


Strategies are just nice ideas without action. We will break down each strategy into a set of challenging, but achievable actions for you to take forward.


Change is hard, especially when you have a time demanding career. I will be there every step of the way to challenge, support, guide and make sure you push past the barriers.

Are You Right For My Coaching

Do You Tick All the Boxes?

You're an ambitious and high functioning leader who is committed to achieving more success

You're driven to thrive in your career and life, rather than just survive?

You're willing to invest in your own success?

You're committed to taking action, working hard and pushing through blockers and drawbacks?

You're ready to be told what others won’t tell you, challenged, pushed hard and held accountable?

How it Works

Discovery Session

Complimentary / No Obligation
We meet for up to 90 minutes face to face or via a video call where we discuss what you want to achieve from working together. Some of my clients when they first meet me are not 100% sure, that is fine, we will gain clarity on that.

During this session, I will determine if I can help you and you will get a sense of whether I am the right coach for you.

If we both feel that we are a good match for coaching, I will propose the best coaching options for what you want to achieve, and the most strategic way forward so that you can start getting the results you want as soon as possible.

Working Together

To Reach Your Full Potential
When I work with someone, I invest an enormous amount of time and effort in supporting them along their exciting journey. We will meet for regular coaching sessions, and I’m always available to my clients in between sessions (within reason).

Next Step

To Reach Your Full Potential & Get Recognition For It
The first step to any change is to make a small step, so take that small step and book a discovery session in my calendar below at a date and time that suits us both.
