Hi, I’m Nick Davies. I’m a tall Mancunian, Blue Peter badge winner and the bloke who owns ‘The Really Great Training Company.’ My background’s in law and business. I’ve been a sales rep, a sandwich maker, and even sold shoes for Russell & Bromley for 6 years - where David Beckham and Vera Duckworth were customers. I’ve also been the director responsible for business development at two limited companies, and started 4 businesses of my own.
I qualified as a barrister as a mature student and even practised … for 6 months (the wig just wasn’t me.) As a trainer and coach in a range of communication skills, I travel the country, teaching bankers, lawyers, actuaries, civil servants and business people how to pitch, present, network, sell and persuade.
My clients range from global legal practices and financial institutions to small, owner-managed firms as well as The Royal Household (a kind of more grand owner-managed firm.)
When I’m not training and coaching I perform stand-up, deliver after-dinner speeches and host award ceremonies. Over the past few years I’ve been lucky enough to have worked and shared stages with a buffet of reasonably well-known people; including: The Rt. Hon. Michael Portillo, Sir Digby Jones, Jenny Bond, Kate Adie, Roger Black MBE, Alan Hansen, Frankie Boyle and Alastair Campbell.
