About Nick

Nick WillisI have dedicated my career to helping companies succeed and excel at managing what I believe are the two major challenges for any company, of any size, in any industry.

  1. Creating a winning strategy
  2. Implementing it well

“Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.”

Sun Tzu Chinese Military Strategist, 500BC

Over the past 20 years I have managed and delivered sustainable improvements in performance for businesses from 1 to 100,000 employees in the resources, manufacturing, technology, retail, service, government and not for profit sectors in the UK, Europe and Asia Pacific.

As a Start Up co-founder, CEO and Change Manager my business philosophy is to maintain a focus and balance across three critical areas:

  1. Protecting the core business through operational excellence;
  2. Implementing change quickly and effectively;
  3. Embedding a culture of sustainable innovation.

My commitment to lifelong professional and personal development has given me a broad and unique range of skills and experiences:
