This in turn has enabled us to become more efficient and effective in our mission. Nicky knows how and when to push, getting you to move toward the strongest outcome and result."

Colleen Krenzer
Head of Marketing & Communications @ M2 (formerly Mini Mermaid UK)

"Nicky played an integral role in guiding our approach to place-based developments over the past few months. Her strategic insights and seamless collaboration with our Physical Activity and Sport Development team and Development Managers has been hugely valuable with good progress made across our place work.


I wholeheartedly recommend Nicky to any organisation seeking an astute strategist who understands place-based approaches. Her impact has been invaluable and I am confident she will bring the same level of excellence and value to other projects and pieces of work she undertakes."

Tim Copley

Nicky is professional, clear thinking and has a wealth of knowledge, which helped guide our charity towards the successful implementation of a 12-month development plan, as well as a refreshed pitch deck. Thank you Nicky!"

Mags Davison
CEO @ Project Turnover

"Meeting regularly for coaching sessions with Nicky propelled me to develop and improve my CV, enhance my LinkedIn profile and connect with like-minded people in the sports industry. With Nicky’s advice and coaching, I feel better equipped to put myself forward for new opportunities and apply for exciting roles within my field of work. 

If you are feeling lost or stagnant in your career, want to develop your skills or just need a little boost, Nicky is the coach for you!"

Grace Clarke
Event & Student Experience Manager @ London School of Economics

"During my time as part of the Model City London team for Laureus Sport for Good, I worked closely with Nicky after she was successfully appointed as a strategy consultant in 2021 to oversee the next phase of this programme. Nicky from the outset showed that her track record in sport for development was a good fit to create a fluid structured plan that could meet the demands of the job specification.


She hit the ground running, ensuring that her experience of working with people at all levels of grassroots sport and physical activity gave her the ability to develop trust from the outset, and regularly evidenced updates as well as demonstrating a willingness to adapt and evolve where needed. Above all her passion to make anything she turns her hand to a success is infectious – she oozes positivity and honesty and this is all too important in this line of work."

Samir Sawhney
Director and Co Founder @ Motiv8 Sports and Fitness & M8SF CIC

"Working with Nicky has always been a pleasure. Her passion and enthusiasm is infectious and inspirational. She is always looking for the most effective and appropriate way to deliver and is not afraid to try new and creative approaches to ensure success. Through Nicky's input and lead we have often developed approaches locally that have then been taken on nationally as best practice and I know this is the case for numerous sports not just our own.


She is very well respected within the industry and by her peers due to her reputation for impact, success and action. As a partner we have always felt listened to and that our needs are always being appreciated in all partnerships we have worked together on. Her attitude, passion, commitment, knowledge and experience undoubtedly make her an extremely valuable member of any team and we have seen this firsthand with her involvement in our Development & Competition Board.


The impact of Nicky's work can be seen across London both directly from the work she has led on and indirectly through the partners she has supported and I have no doubt that more young people across the capital will have a lifelong participation in sport because of Nicky."

Lee Ward
Senior Relationships Manager @ Badminton England

"I really valued Nicky's drive towards achieving the seemingly unattainable and I know there are more people playing sport today because of Nicky's work at LYG."

Russell Findlay
CEO @ Speakers Trust, ex London Youth Games CEO

"Nicky is awesome. She’s driven, articulate, understands the bigger picture but pays attention to the detail. If you’re lucky enough to work with her you’ll see her passion for young people shine through."

Paul Williams
Director - Programmes Implementation UK, @ Movember

"Nicky has brought creativity, strategic thinking and high level professional coaching and mentoring across a team of Development Coaches and the wider national School Games workforce. Through working collaboratively with colleagues and partners, Nicky has established vibrant and sustainable networks driving the development of school sport in local areas which has maximised relationships with relevant stakeholders to ensure connectivity.


Nicky’s knowledge and experience across the sector is invaluable and her strong leadership skills inspire and challenge to achieve positive results."

Ashley Hosier
National Development Manager @ Youth Sport Trust

"Nicky is a conscientious and responsive growth consultant who thoughtfully guided CFHE through developing our 3 - year strategic vision. Supporting us in incorporating all voices and developing a vision that represents who we are and where we are going, we have a roadmap that truly reflects us, our community, and our mission."

Dr Leeja Carter
Executive Director & Founder @ Coalition for Food and Health Equity, New Jersey

"It has been a great pleasure and learning working with Nicky over the last few years. Her passion and resilience is infectious, which is absolutely essential to make meaningful change in sport in the current climate!  


Whether it was driving change from the top down through global sports brands collaborations, or building change for the future from the ground up in fledgling football foundations; I’ve witnessed Nicky effectively coach those around her to see the opportunity in the process, leverage the teams’ strengths to effectively move forward, and create a leadership culture of open and honest communication that brings out the best in people."

Richard Frost
Founder and MD @ First Five Marketing and ex Nike

"Nicky has been an amazing person to work with on the Laureus Sport for Good Cities initiative in London and has shown guile, passion and unmatched expertise when working with locally led organisations. She has built solid reputable relationships with the people that matter most and has been pivotal in taking these leaders on a journey of change whilst striving to embed local leadership and learning. Her approach has helped foster a sense of community for our place-based work and has empowered the coalitions to work towards becoming sustainable entities with clear strategic plans and growth plans. 


Above all, Nicky has a great personality that balances high standards and results-driven approaches with authentic mentorship and coaching. She is patient, connected and empathetic and strives to ensure no one is left behind. All hallmarks of working in community development."

Lee Parker
Senior Programme and Grants Manager @ Laureus Sport for Good

"Nicky worked in a consultancy capacity for EMD UK in 2016 to support us to develop a UK wide solution for engaging more children and young people in dance. We asked Nicky to help us with this piece of work as we knew that she had the in-depth knowledge of the youth and grassroots sport sectors and how to develop tangible solutions and strategic plans that would remain sustainable. Nicky is professional, passionate and knowledgeable and made it easy for us to work with her to achieve our organisational outcomes."

Jade Cation
Director of Impact & Innovation @ London Sport

"Nicky is an enthusiastic, highly motivated and passionate individual. Whether it be mentoring or coaching  an individual; or supporting an organisation to deliver their strategic vision, Nicky’s passion shines through in all that she does."

Marina Harden
Volunteer and Community Engagement Manager @ Limelight Sports

"Nicky is a game-changer. Where Nicky’s value lies is not in what she knows, nor who; but how she is able to connect the dots between related or even disconnected pieces of work by identifying shared values and goals to maximise the impact. Her innate ability to build relationships with people through mentoring and coaching is admirable, and her tenacity to bring strategic visions and plans to life through collaborations and partnerships is second to none. 


I’ve had the pleasure of working with Nicky as a client, consultant, and colleague, and in all those roles her approach was meaningful, consistent, and value-adding. She is particularly adept at getting the most out of individuals for the greater good of their collective team. 


If you have a piece of work, and you aren’t sure who you need to be at the table or helping you shape it and make it happen, your missing piece is Nicky."
