Act now before it is too late Steve Harvey, Group Director, People and Culture, Microsoft UK. Nicholas brings the best personal development training with simple sysytems and strategies for growth. He has helped me and many others here take a grip of their lives and fast forward to the results they desire. Michael Wood, Retail Academy, Marks & Spencer
