Nick established the business training organisation Training for Change in 1994. His purpose is to offer training and facilitation services to corporate business in the area of human dynamics – the interface of people working with people.
He has a background in teaching, television production, sales and corporate communications. These experiences shaped his business philosophy: the purpose of any initiative is to support people to change their behavior.
His view is that most people do the best job they can with the resources they have. But many people in business have not been given the resources necessary to carry out their roles effectively. By introducing more skills and strategies in a supportive environment, people are eager to improve their own performance.
Nick is also strongly committed to ensuring that the services he provides meet the needs of the organisation concerned. The key to any effective communications or training programme is to clearly define its purpose. Only then can you determine the most effective strategies to achieve that purpose. His focus is always to improve the performance of an organisation by supporting and resourcing its people to improve themselves. His studies of adult learning processes, such as accelerated learning and neurolinguistic programming make his interactions with people particularly effective.
Over the years, Nick has worked with many thousands of people across Australasia. He has worked in a wide range of organisations, from government departments to large and small companies.
