Paul, Head of HR, Air Liquide

“Nicky’s session at our M&A Conference went fabulously well… she was a massive hit and we all really enjoyed her presentation and insights. I heard a great deal of positive reaction to her session, and it was one of the most popular of the day. It hit the mark exactly and gave us all much to think about; I’m sure I’m not the only one today determined to put her ideas into action! Our managing partner also turned up because he wanted to hear what Nicky had to say. Everyone was impressed by Nicky’s experience and her direct, no-nonsense approach to leadership balanced with just the right dose of humour and self-deprecation.”
