This is what Nick's clients say about him..........

Nick, you hit the nail completely on the head (as usual!) and articulated so well what is needed. Thank you for keeping me accountable I felt energised after today and full of beans ... Always good to see you and hear your words of wisdom, listen to your honesty and share your enthusiasm ! I always enjoy our sessions which are always so authentic ! AH. HR Consultant

 

I’ve got a lot out of our meetings over the year – it really impresses how important it is to spend time doing these things properly. I think you also did a great job managing the sessions flexibly, so we spent time on things which were important for me to explore deeply. You listened but also challenged which was great. AW. Senior Business Analyst

 

Nick has helped identify where and how progress has been made and areas which require more focus. He has a great coaching style, motivating and encouraging one to come up with the answers oneself. I am thoroughly appreciating the opportunity to work with Nick, whose supportive and relaxed, yet determined style certainly works for me. The programme has already brought greater clarity to and confidence in my natural style and has helped reaffirm what is important to me. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with Nick as part of my development. I only wish that it had happened earlier in my career. GS. Operations Director, Manufacturing sector

 

You have given me such confidence in my ability, so much so that I can honestly say I'm probably more content now than I have been for years, and not just in work. Marketing Consultant

 

I was so blown away by our conversation. I’ve been allowing my imagination to unfold and to play with creative ideas ever since. I can’t remember exactly what you said but I experienced an enormous emotional shift afterwards – great stuff! AW. Accountant

 

Nick was superb! He understood my strengths and ability in the workplace very quickly. Nick’s encouragement and positive attitude was a real huge boost to my confidence. It was a look forward event to have Nick’s ‘professional pick me up’ sessions! Without his coaching, I couldn’t have directed my career with such great success. SM. Head of Talent

 

I found working with Nick, an inspiring experience. His ability to focus on my strengths and suggest ways to build on them was extremely helpful. I had gone to the first session with a plan already in my head, but luckily Nick made me take a step back. He encouraged me to play to my natural talents and match these up with my career ambitions. Sounds simple, but it takes someone like Nick to smooth the path and give objective advice. My newfound self-awareness is a great support in decision-making. 

I was somewhat sceptical as to how Nick could assist me in my development plans but was willing to ‘listen’. In fact, I was very pleasantly surprised from the outset when it became apparent that Nick’s approach was informal and, more importantly, two-way. He did not simply provide a set formula based on text book theories but used his wealth of experience to adopt an individual approach tailored to my needs. Nick’s input greatly improved my whole outlook on life (work and home). I truly cannot describe how Nick’s words of wisdom used to lift me in the low times during the inevitable rollercoaster that one experiences. Not only has my self-confidence greatly improved, Nick was robust in his approach and encouraged me to critically assess my plans and options. Company Secretary/ Manufacturing

"Renishaw joined the Leader & Executive Programmes coordinated by Circle 2 Success primarily to support the development of people working on organisational development. All the events enable attendees to join in peer to peer discussions, learn about organisational challenges and reflect on specific elements of our own business in a safe and friendly environment. Many of my team members have attended the executive meetings and return to the workplace with new contacts, suggestions and recognition that we often face similar business challenges. As a leader I have built stronger working relationships across Gloucestershire businesses and participated in sharing insight".

"Renewing our C2S membership was a very easy business decision. It's been fantastic for our growth and innovation by learning from other businesses outside the accounting industry and sharing ideas, problems, strategies and successes. It's like having an external board but it's also like being part of a family. Angela and Suzanne go out of their way to make you feel welcome and spend the time to understand deeply what you are trying to achieve so that they can connect you with the right people. If you're thinking of joining, don't think just do it! The return on investment is phenomenal and I should know, I'm an accountant!"
