Exceptional, enlightening, inspiring and brilliant. Made you think about things differently - a breath of fresh air. Plenty of food for thought. Kept the audience engaged and alert - had a great way of getting the message across. Entertaining. Ended the conference on a light-hearted and positive note. Very good speaker who made me think twice about the way I run my own area.

“Nigel was a charismatic and thought-provoking speaker, engaging our audience from the very start. Not only did he encourage us to all be ‘in the room’ but he managed to make us leave it transformed…into elephants, monkeys, dolphins, and lions no less – not something you can usually say from a day at work!”
