Feedback on his presentations includes:
“Nick gave a really inspiring talk at our Members’ Day and hit the nail on the head with the brief. The talk was entertaining and left members motivated to do their bit to help protect wildlife and the environment. Nick was very generous with his time and spent several hours after afterwards talking to members, answering questions and posing for photographs. Nick’s profile really helped us to draw in an audience for our event and attendance was well up on the previous year.” Richard Whittaker, Member Engagement Manager, Lincolnshire Co-op
