It’s been a pleasure working with Nick on our smart-living research. Nick brought energy and insight to our workshops, facilitating a range of interactive techniques. It was essential that participants took a future-oriented perspective of the research challenge and Nick was able to foster this through expertly framing the discussion and interaction. This has helped immensely with the quality of the workshop outputs and ultimately the final report and findings.

Workshops

Anona Vázquez-Masson
Nick facilitated a session on innovation for me and did an excellent job. He quickly grasped what I was aiming to achieve and put together a format for the session that worked very well. Nick’s obvious knowledge and expertise in the area also helped me add to the brief and focus on the key points.

It was a pleasure to work with Nick and I have no hesitation in recommending him to others.
