Business Entrepreneur, Peak Performance Coach and Author (UK)

Nigel Risner is the only motivational speaker in Europe to have been awarded Speaker of the Year from The Academy for Chief Executives, The Executive Committee and Footdown. Nigel is a respected author, television presenter and a prolific speaker.

He speaks with authority: his own life having veered perilously away from comfortable norms at times. He has learned that positive results can come from negative experiences, and that we often learn best from situations which are unfamiliar and even uncomfortable.

“I attended a leadership workshop you delivered in Durham for County Durham and Darlington Foundation NHS Trust this year. I was inspired to follow through with some of the concepts you introduced on the day, like: be in the room, feed forward and its a zoo around here. I ordered your books the very next day. I have encouraged many friends and colleagues to read all three as they have helped me enormously, in fact I immediately implemented the feed forward principle within my team, and also the celebrating success at the beginning of meetings, both were immeasurably successful, Thank you.” Jeremy Petty, Deputy Managing Director, Scarlettabbott.
