The common feature to most of Nigel’s training is Accelerated Learning. Using a number of common sense approaches backed with vast operational experience, Nigel provides the environment where delegates are able to learn using their natural preference for taking on the learning. This has the effect of creating a deeper form of learning which delegates enjoy.

Nigel’s key skills are around communication. Whether verbal or written, listening or observing, Nigel finds the appropriate method for the delegates so that good rapport is built within the group. This allows learners to feel at ease, have fun and hence learn more easily. Nigel is especially effective when facilitating groups or exploring learning themes.Nigel has an MSc in Training & Performance Management and is Myers Briggs Step2 Registered.
