I have now worked with Nick for over 10 years. During this time, Nick has shown great expertise and capability in helping position and improve the perception of the company in our public and private market places. He has brought great and different insights and understanding into how the public sector works, and his range of contacts has proven to be very useful during a period of great change. I recommend Nick without hesitation – he delivers.

Nick was recommended to us and quite simply we have never looked back.

His grasp of the planning process, his understanding of local government and his wide-reaching networks have proved invaluable to the business. His business insight is sharp and provides additional value through this input too.

Barry Ladhar – Crafted Projects

As a family owned high growth business working in the care sector, everything we do is based upon trust, and we have this with Nick. His work on larger scale projects such as Daventry Extra Care Village was extensive and was a significant factor in securing planning, and his community engagement and political strategies helped us secure planning for new homes in Buckingham and York. Nick excels at government liaison and also press and media relations. He is a true asset.
