Testimonials

Brilliant speaker and one that really relates to industry.

Nigel was extremely well received by our conference delegates.  He is an excellent speaker and related his topic to our people very effectively.
Small Business Development Conference

What can I say about Nigel, he has worked with Nando’s for years and is not considered a contractor, but is a Nandoca and part of the Nando’s family. Every year we do things differently and Nigel is always there to provide help and guidance.
Nandos

Nigel’s insights into creativity and his assertions that everyone has the ability to be creative and innovative were eye opening. Nigel’s experiences combined with his knowledge were an absolute hit with our attendees, with each and every attendee walking away with a fresh approach to idea generation. I would highly recommend Nigel to anyone looking to expand their creativity and capacity to generate original and practical ideas.
