Hi, I’m Nick.
I’m incredibly passionate about coaching and training leaders in an array of spheres: entertainment, business, politics, sport, education, media… just to name a few!
Throughout my life, I have been interested in multiple fields. The golden thread has been helping others be all they can be. That currently finds expression in helping bridge the gap between what it means to be human in a new world of Artificial Intelligence (AI), and in creating environments where others can do their best thinking.
I’m passionate about building strong relationships with my clients that last. I’m a caring, yet practical, coach; I challenge my clients to bring the best out of themselves to kick-start a profound dream or goal. I have an abundance of energy and enthusiasm that I offer for my clients, and I am determined not to give up on any of them. I’m observant and forensically positive about my work. Some feedback I have received from my clients:
“I appreciated the non-imposing pushes, the willingness to steer off into the personal, the push to fall into my fear.”
“Nick is a tremendously thoughtful leader and coach. He builds trust very quickly, which helps to cut straight to the issues that matter.”
“Nick is the best coach I have had by far.”
I understand that being in the public eye or excelling at the top level of leadership brings with it too many pressures to handle. This is where I come in…

My clients reach out to me in times of stress, or poor work-life balance, or when they are simply not fulfilling their potential. I’ve helped them reach this potential, to enjoy the pleasures of both work and personal life more, and to make an impact within their fields of work.
I have dedicated my professional life to helping leaders flourish. As a former McKinsey consultant, I have spent 20,000+ hours coaching executives, educators, politicians, diplomats, military leaders, home-makers, students and others and I have seen leaders from all sectors, and from all walks of life, as they have struggled and claimed great victories.
After graduating from Cambridge University, I began my career at Andersen as a Management Consultant and then moved to McKinsey & Co., working mainly in the UK, Europe and the USA.
After leaving McKinsey in 2003, I became a Master Executive Coach and established my own coaching practice. Coinciding with this, I am also the Managing Director of Artesian – a consultancy that brings soulful leadership to large and medium-sized organisations worldwide. Along the way, I did two additional Master’s degrees and a doctorate, wrote a book, co-wrote a bestseller and founded a tech start-up.
My Personal Life
I’m of British-Greek-Indian descent, so you can trust my philosophical side! I’ve been married to my amazing wife Tanja since 2005. We live in Oxford, England. We have 3 lively, young daughters – parenting has sure taught me a lot… even hairstyling skills!
In my spare time I like to cook, particularly curries of any kind. You’ve gotta add some spice to life! They, amongst a few other meals, fuel me for training for triathlons. When I’m depleted of energy, I love to read. My favourite book is Middlemarch by George Eliot.
Are you concerned about the emerging presence of AI in an ever-changing world, but want to reach a level of comfort in the power of humanity? Need inspiration about how to lead yourself, others or your organisation?
