Testimonials & Client Experience

Here's a selection of positive comments from some of the organisations and businesses I've worked with in recent years:


"In sourcing, writing and editing content for ATL's annual report, Nick brought a high degree of professional competency and sector knowledge, meeting tight deadlines with a proactive approach. He quickly grasped the task in hand and delivered a thorough, reliable service."

Victoria Barlow, Assistant General Secretary (Communications), National Education Union

"Nick has worked with Achievement for All in support of a number of projects including recently the launch of our Ambassador Head Teachers and a project raising awareness of the importance of increasing parental engagement in children's education. He successfully placed and wrote a wide range of features, interviews, columns and case studies in national, education, union, and professional print and online media, raising the profile of the work of schools working with Achievement for All and the positive impact it has on vulnerable and disadvantaged children across the country."

Lindsaye Fox, Achievement for All 3As

"Nick was recommended to me for our 24th anniversary event at the centre and he exceeded our expectations. Nick is empathetic, an excellent communicator, reliable, thorough and managed to get us coverage on BBC and ITV news and the Jewish News and Jewish Chronicle. We also gleaned coverage in the local press. I would recommend Nick to anyone wishing to raise the profile of their organisation."

Sophie Farrell, National Holocaust Centre and Museum

"We have worked with Nick for over three years now. He has helped us not only to achieve wider coverage but has also provided guidance and challenge in the areas we needed it. A thorough professional, well connected in the publishing world and a great sounding board."

Keith Wright, Bluewave Education

“Nick can take a rag tag bunch of information and garbled thoughts and turn them into something beautiful. He's written a number of pieces for us now and they've appeared in the TES, SEN publications and Education Investor amongst others.”

Tim McShane, Fluffy Clouds Education Marketing

“Nick is fantastic. In addition to being a respected thought-leader and one of the most credible people in the education comms sector - he is modest, considered and a genuinely nice person to work with. Nick's passion for achieving first class editorial content is what really sets him apart from others. I would recommend him as a professional who really seeks to understand by carefully listening and asking the right questions.”

Leah Burgess, Words & Pictures

“Nick has developed a series of case studies for NCTL to promote the Specialist Leaders of Education (SLE) programme. He has an ability to understand and explore the subject areas in detail and captures his research in an easy to read style. A number of his case studies are published on GOV.uk and these have attracted significant interest."

Scott Caine, National College for Teaching and Leadership

“Nick is an outstanding, intelligent copywriter whose skills match or exceed any good broadsheet columnist or feature writer. A great colleague; calm, supportive and extremely well informed. I highly recommend Nick to anyone needing high quality editorial.”

Ruth Coulthard, Children’s Food Trust
