Background

Nick Summers is a highly motivated hands-on business leader with experience in multiple fields and industries. His career has spanned a variety of business environments, from SME to Plc, PE and B2B. He has worked across several multi-million-pound negotiations including end-to-end mergers and acquisitions, enabled strategic planning at leadership level and overseen large company P&Ls.

With over 25 years’ commercial experience, Nick understands that every business is individual in its own right, and encounters different challenges. His previous roles – charting back to the very earliest days of his career – have spanned the ranks, and produced an array of valuable skills and a broad-spectrum insight into the varied roles and responsibilities of different positions. In the past decade, this expertise has culminated in his current directorial and board capacities.

Over the years Nick has developed a bespoke coaching business with the aim of delivering expert guidance on achieving growth year-on-year, with mentoring, personal/team development and recruitment becoming a key interest. In 2018 he became DISC certified and also completed the ICF-approved Barefoot Coaching programme. He has also been certified by Cranfield’s Director’s programme, the Marketing Strategies and the Marketing Director programmes. Nick also holds a qualification in recruitment practice.

Recruitment, training and people development are at the forefront of Nick’s business ethos, founded on the principles of empowerment and independence. For Nick, coaching enables the client to discover their own paths to professional development, while his tailor-made consulting and mentoring programmes provide solutions to achieving these goals.

His most recent positions have been characterised by the desire to rebuild a culture of connectivity: supporting commercial growth and enhancing operations across sales, marketing, finance delivery and B2b and B2c retail. Although cohesion is important, Nick is a passionate believer in the notion of “positive dysfunctionality” – the ability to challenge a status quo or an established protocol in order to achieve results, both inside and outside the boardroom.

Nick’s varied career is a testament to his refusal to stagnate. His previous companies and clients have witnessed rapid growth, the implementation of sales-analysis tools, improved processes and procedures and the instigation of the correct bespoke strategic plan for company growth, staff satisfaction, operational efficiency, customer retention and profit maximisation.

Nick is entirely client-focused: an important question is whether the high-functioning members of a client’s team are being effectively managed, mentored and developed professionally. Nick brings these questions and more to any senior-leadership team. His personal motto, therefore, is unsurprising in its powerful simplicity: “Love your business. Love your life.”
