IT Consulting

Making workplaces
equitable, ethical and culturally intelligent


About Nic

A strategic cultural consultant for FTSE, NASDAQ and private companies, as well as governing bodies and charities. 

I give leaders the confidence and tools to develop their cultural intelligence (CQ). I build culture into the governance of  organisations, ensuring that the leadership of culture is actionable, impactful and sustainable. 


What is Cultural Intelligence (CQ)?

Cultural Intelligence (CQ) is the natural evolution from the now well-established notions of Intelligence Quotient (IQ) and Emotional Intelligence (EQ). Good leaders need all three if they are to lead effectively.

Organisations need leaders who don’t just shy away from difference but gravitate towards it. They need leaders who don’t see diversity as threatening; they see it as exciting and enriching. Leaders who don't see culture as a "fluffy" conversation but see it as a strategic imperative for their company. 

Leaders need to be able to analyse and nurture the culture of their organisation to achieve business success. Leaders who can do this are leaders with Cultural Intelligence (CQ).

Easily the best session or conversation I've had around the topic of D&I in my career to date. Nic's CQ training session for my HR team was incredibly good. Thank you. Lots of food for thought!
