A highly trained and experienced executive and leadership coach, trainer, and speaker, Nicole leverages her diverse corporate exposure and non-profit leadership experience with her proven coaching skills to cataylse high performance in people and organisations, with a dose of good mischief. Her passion for empowering people to envision the future with a “healthy disregard for the impossible” (Larry Page, co-founder of Google), and to become the person necessary to achieve that vision, is at the heart of her success.
Nicole has supported more than 300 executives, senior and emerging leaders with over 2,000 hours of one-on-one, group, and team coaching in organisations including Fortune 10-500 Companies in over 25 industries such as Technology, Biotechnology, Finance, Pharmaceuticals, Manufacturing, Oil & Gas, Construction, Communications, Hospitality as well as Academic, Federal, and Non-Profit Institutions. Some of her clients include Euronext (the pan-European stock exchange), The National Trust, Skipton Building Society (financial services), Spotlight Casting, Knowle West Media Centre, and the Royal Institute of British Architects.
Nicole simply 'gets it'. She is superb. She can zero in on issues very quickly and make appropriate recommendations.
Nicole is an intuitive powerhouse who brings energy, warmth and drive to our sessions. In working with her I’ve had countless ‘a-ha’ moments that she’s helped me to transform into tangible, impactful changes in my life. She is a dynamite - a unique blend of power and heart.
Nicole cuts through bull like a hot knife through butter.
Identified as a leader throughout her younger years, Nicole rose to leadership positions in her early 20’s. She successfully ran an emergency shelter and crisis line for women affected by domestic abuse in Canada, led operations for a UK coaching start-up, and founded a coaching social enterprise in London before age 30. Her early success as a leader resulted in large part from being trusted to get the best from the people around her. Nicole has honed this natural strength to become her expertise, and uses this to serve her clients and their goals.
In the first iteration of her career, Nicole gained on-the-ground expertise in visioning and influencing, creating opportunities, navigating VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity, ambiguity), and exhibiting pivotal leadership qualities. She began the current iteration of her career in 2015 in the finance and insurance industries in London, UK as an executive coach and trainer. Her work has earned her opportunities to educate her peers through publishing and speaking at national and international coaching conferences.
Nicole has spoken at the BBC; the Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy; the former Department of Energy and Climate Change; Skipton Building Society; Coaching at Work; the Ministry of Entrepreneurship; and LondonTechLadies (Lean-In Circle, a DEI initiative).
Nicole’s coaching is informed by a combination of world-class education, specialised training, and professional experience. Nicole has obtained her MSc (London School of Economics and Political Science), BA (University of Saskatchewan), CPCC (Certified Professional Co-Active Coach, Coaches Training Institute), PCC (Professional Certified Coach, International Coach Federation) and FRSA (Fellow of the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce) professional designations and combines this with additional certifications (including Organisation & Relationship Systems at Work, Certified Executive Coach, and others) and experience to help each client elevate their performance and wellbeing, and achieve their goals.
