After a reasonably long stint of public service with the British Army (some 38 years!), Nick has decided to put the skills that he has learned to good use in a plural career.
Nick has a passion for inclusive leadership which focuses on attracting and developing individual talent. He recognises that a healthy work-force is central to this philosophy and is delighted to be able to deliver support in this area as an executive mentor with the Eleos Partnership.
His last military position was as Deputy Chief of the General Staff. He was the Chief Executive of an Army of 80,000 regular and 30,000 reserve soldiers and 10,000 civil servants. His job entailed transformation, strategic planning and programming, performance management and international relations.

He was also the Army Champion for safety, diversity and inclusion and for the LGBT+ community.
Nick has found it almost impossible to leave the Army behind him. He remains Senior Mentor to the Army Generals Course and retains tribal responsibilities as Master of the Royal Corps of Signals and Colonel Commandant of the Brigade of Gurkhas.
