About me

Executive Coach Suffolk & Ipswich


Nick has been coaching since 2004 and has a diverse international client base, ranging from MBA graduates to senior managers and executives in global organisations.

He has delivered leadership coach training and executive coaching to senior managers in a wide range of organisations in both the private and public sectors, including Bosch, City of London Corporation, British Telecom, O2, Network Rail, Fonterra, Royal Bank of Scotland, Civil Service, NHS, Concern Worldwide and Cranfield Management School.

His wide ranging experience, training and credentials as a senior corporate executive and professional coach enable him to readily connect with his clients’ challenges.

Based in Suffolk, Nick is an enthusiastic Executive and Leadership Coach with extensive experience of working in corporate environments. He wants people to wake up on Monday morning looking forward to the day as much as they look forward to Friday evenings, so that work has meaning beyond saving for retirement (if that is even a possibility nowadays!).

Supporting Difficult Transitions

Nick specialises in supporting people to maximise their personal and professional performance, whether focused around business, career or life coaching. He has successfully supported hundreds of clients through difficult transitions and challenges in order to achieve the outcomes and fulfilment that they want.

He assists his clients in gaining clarity so that they can overcome the challenges in their lives, obtain new perspectives and move with boldness and confidence towards what they really want.

He aims to make the coaching process enjoyable and fun whilst creating a context of rich personal learning, to enable his clients to improve their confidence, recognise their values and re-motivate themselves to identify and achieve their personal and career goals.

Challenges explored can typically include: getting the best from people, building successful teams, overcoming business and organisational challenges, developing emotional intelligence and improving resilience, managing the stresses of change, increasing self-confidence and influence, having a bigger impact as a leader, to name just a few.

Nick has a unique holistic coaching style that has impacted me profoundly. He is one of the few trusted people in my life. Nick's coaching approach has helped me face some of the most daunting challenges I have ever encountered. His natural intuitive and instincts, bundled with a gentle, firm and caring manner while keeping an eye for meaningful outcomes has been immensely beneficial to me. Nick integrates the full spectrum of professional career demands with personal dimensions of a human being in his coaching approach. Anyone working with Nick is indeed blessed and I highly recommend him to be part of your coaching or life journey. Heartiest thank you Nick. Senior Manager, Robert Bosch (South East Asia)

I have been working with Nick for a number of months, during this time Nick has helped me improve a number of areas in my thinking and awareness. He has done this through perceptive insight, challenging questioning and a very in depth library of resources and techniques that he uses to help you cement the learning from each session. He has a patient manner and is very approachable and appears to really care about his clients well being. I can thoroughly recommend Nick to anyone. CEO Suffolk

I initially contacted Nick in 2006 because I needed guidance and coaching in my career. Working with Nick has given me the confidence to discuss complex issues with senior management and customers in my role as project manager; enabled me to produce a business case to achieve a promotion; supported me when producing self-evaluations for appraisals – and receiving a bonus owing to the quality of evidence provided. Nick continues to be my career/life coach which also involves discussing a wide range of subjects to support me not only in my role as a project manager but personally too. This has led to a broadening of my outlook and expanding my knowledge. Ursula Zajac: Senior Project Manager, British Telecom
