Thank you so much for your work. We were really pleased with your effort, time management, the great questions you asked, the flow of the conversation, and engaging all participants in the group discussions. Your ability to clearly understand our business, and learn inside-out our new product innovation in a very tight time frame just before Christmas, is a testament to your work ethic. The insights and strategic recommendations provided were very inspiring, and at the same time practical, helping us to easily decide the next steps with this concept

I engaged Nick to provide two training sessions related to quantitative data analysis and storytelling. He certainly exceeded expectations, delivering interactive and practical sessions that were inspiring to both junior and senior team members. He provided new models of thinking, analysing and writing - which helped to crystalize the 'floating thought' of a presentation and were an 'aha' moment for several in the team. We're already putting the training into practice and feedback from clients has been positive!

Wow! I am really impressed that you have encapsulated it so well. The group discussions you facilitated were a breath of fresh air, encouraging diverse opinions, and collaborating with our stakeholders perspectives was very fruitful. The final report is brilliant! A wealth of information and ideas and I am sure the Department will learn a lot from it. Thank you for doing such a great job.

Nick submitted a proposal for company-wide training in qualitative skills.  The programme consisted of a series of 8 sessions spread over a year, starting with the philosophy of qualitative research and taking participants step by step through qualitative processes (including on-line) to the final presentation of results and how to inspire and motivate action from them. The sessions were conducted face to face and via webinar.  Participants got to practise qualitative techniques, to observe and learn from each other. They had exercises to complete between sessions.

As a person, responsible for overseeing and co-ordinating company training, this was the epitome of training practice. The sessions were linked and each built on the one before.  The participants reported delight and satisfaction with what they were learning.    I could sense the building of qualitative practise in Colmar Brunton.  We now have a group of people who have been given a solid platform to build the qualitative aspect of their career in market research. Their growth in confidence and expertise has served them well as individuals, and just as importantly it has raised the bar for our company practise of qualitative research.

I would highly recommend Nick’s ability to impart his knowledge and experience and to instil vision and confidence in qualitative researchers.

Gabrielle Carman, HR Director, Colmar Brunton Australia

It was an absolute pleasure working with Nick. We approached his Company to develop and implement an extensive training program for our Qualitative team. He truly listened to our needs and delivered an incredible program for all levels of the team. We continue to draw on his knowledge share. Nick also tapped into personal coaching opportunities and continues to work closely with our business. He is one of those people who can connect quickly, think creatively, target specific needs and drive key learnings. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience with a down-to-earth personality. As a result we recently engaged him on a freelance Qualitative Research basis which has been a huge success and delivered high level outputs/insights. We look forward to working together in the future!
