Having initially made his name as an innovation guru behind the global positioning of Xbox and the development of the most successful TV show of all time, Nick realized that leadership and culture are the keys to long-term success. He now runs cutting-edge transformational leadership and culture-change programs for CEOs of HSBC, the top 10,000 at Unilever, the heads of every UK government department, and the emerging leaders at tech phenomenon Zalando.

He has been invited to speak at the prestigious Aspen Ideas Festival, TEDx, PBWC SF, and SciFoo at Google Mountain View.

Innovation

As a speaker, Nick does not just illuminate what the future holds but how we must lead continuous breakthroughs to forge the future we want. Nick inspires people with the limitless opportunities of the networked age and how to leave behind Industrial-Age thinking that blocks us being agile and adaptable enough to seize them. A renowned thinker on the 4th Industrial Revolution, Connected Capitalism and Global Risks, he invites people to harness the challenges of new technologies like Artificial Intelligence and blockchain to up their game as leaders with their unique human purpose, creativity, caring and critical thinking.

The Switch On Way

Nick’s advanced leadership and innovation methodology, The Switch On Way, provides a rigorous and proven pathway for unleashing transformational change in any business, system or society. It provides leaders with over 70+ tools to seize the opportunities within the “triple threat” of the networked, stressed and disrupted world. The Switch On Way helps leaders cut through treacle to make change happen, takes the pain out of business transformation and blasts through the barriers that block innovation. Nick customizes every talk with relevant examples, stories from the frontlines, take-away tools and nuggets of science and wisdom.

Transformative Leadership in the VUCA World

Rapid change, uncertainty and complexity are driving Industrial-Age companies to fail. What got them here will not get them there. Nick explains how leaders can master themselves, so they can turn constant change outside into exponential value - transforming processes, products, and people at will.

Digital Transformation & Corporate Culture Change

Digital age technologies and the 4th Industrial Revolution are forcing all organizations to transform inside. Yet over 65% of all change programs fail. Nick explains how to master change and leverage emotions, mindsets, and behavior to land digital transformation.

Agility, Adaptability & High-Performance Teams

Rapid change demands we must all be more agile with our ideas and behaviors. But fear, friction, groupthink, and entrenched habits get in the way. Nick explains how leaders can create the conditions for agility, adaptability, and pace.

Influential Leadership, Persuasion & Storytelling

Matrix organizations and complex markets mean that leaders must know how to grab attention and ensure alignment without recourse to command and control. Nick explains how to ethically use persuasion and storytelling to influence people - whether customers or employees - painting pictures of possibility that inspire hearts, elevate minds, and invite immediate action.

Creative Leadership & Transformation

Changes in the outside world threaten every organization with irrelevance. Nick shows leaders how to create value out of change through safe, controlled and conscious organizational ‘self-disruption’. Nick shows how to unleash the creative potential of people and prevent the organizational ‘immune system’ from crushing ideas and individuals before transformations are landed.

Resilience & Self-Mastery

Employee overwhelm, and stress is crushing the potential of even the greatest companies to do Business-As-Usual let alone be agile, adaptable and creative. Nick explains how employees can mastery their own biology, time, energy and performance and so build deep resilience which minimizes stress and overwhelm permanently.
