Nick Fewings, Teamworkologist
Award-winning International Conference Speaker
Talks about achieving high-performance teamwork
I have organised and delivered a two day face-to-face event for 155 colleagues from 10 different countries and 23 nationalities who had never had the opportunity to meet as a whole team since becoming one region in 2H2019.
As part of the event planning, I needed to find a guest speaker who was going to wow the audience. I considered many different inspirational speakers: some have explored the world, some have climbed mountains, many have overcome adversity or personal hardship, some are business entrepreneurs who speak about their rags to riches story, and some are just famous and expensive! All of them are no doubt very interesting, inspiring and excellent speakers – but none were quite going to hit the mark for what I was looking for.
My event was about a group of people who were coming together for the first time ever, to get to know and understand each other – both in a work and social context, to build relationships and trust, and to be able to collaborate effectively across teams and geographical boundaries. I thought of Nick!
I knew Nick would be good, but he far exceeded all my expectations – and also those of the audience. His session delivered exactly the content we were looking for, carefully tailored to our specific requirements and situation. He talked about teamwork, leadership, what makes a good team, how well people work together, understanding not just who is in the team but more importantly how effective the team is.
I was especially keen that his talk would not be a lecture, or a presentation in the traditional context. I need not have worried! Nick’s talk was highly informative, interactive, personable, relatable, funny and – possibly the most important of all – entertaining and very memorable. He expertly weaved stories, anecdotes and examples into his talk, actively involving the audience throughout, balancing the delivery of highly-valuable content and knowledge whilst maintaining interest and engagement.
We are already planning our next engagement with Nick. I cannot recommend him highly enough. Quite simply, he is exceptional at what he does.
Thanks Nick – you were an absolute star and I cannot wait to work with you some more.
One of the outstanding conference speakers I’ve ever met and a thoroughly charming person.
Nick ranks among the very best speakers that I have ever encountered.
Nick was recommended to PMI Singapore as a speaker for our 13th Symposium for 600+ delegates over two days in Singapore. Nick delivered an interactive and educational session, with appropriate humour and relevant business anecdotes, for 2 hours. Of the 17 speakers, Nick was voted the best speaker at the Symposium, with 94% of delegates who provided feedback, rating his session as Excellent/Very Good. I would highly-recommend Nick as an expert business speaker, who is able to deliver practical business learning to large audiences during a long-session, whilst keeping the whole audience engaged.
“Cracking The Code Of High-Performance Teamwork”
A summary of the 2-hour interactive conference presentation that I delivered to 600 delegates at the Marina Bay Sands Hotel, Singapore.
Of the 17 speakers, I was delighted to be voted “best speaker”, with 94% of delegates, who provided feedback, rating my presentation Very Good or Excellent.
Nick presented to our leaders in two sessions, delivering engaging, informative and insightful presentations to both small and larger audience groups. Nick has a fantastic, funny and entertaining style to his presentations that makes everyone feel at ease, and the use of relatable examples and interactive elements throughout meant that colleagues remained involved for the whole session. 85% of event attendees who completed our feedback survey felt that Nick’s session will really make a difference to their working lives, which is all we can ask for really! I would highly recommend Nick if you’re looking to give your employees a different slant on working together more effectively as a team.
“Learning With Fun!”
Conference delegates always say that they like to learn, whilst enjoying the learning experience.
Psychologists also state that if you enjoy yourself whilst learning, you will remember the learning for a much longer time.

He engages the room in a way that few others in his field do and brings the audience on the journey with him.
98% of delegates rated Nick’s presentation as excellent.
I hired Nick after seeing him speak at a European PA Conference. He is an extremely engaging, lively and entertaining speaker who is sure to liven up any audience! I joked about his slot being the ‘graveyard shift’, after lunch and having to lift a room that is starting to get tired, he 100% delivered on that and Twitter was awash with positive feedback on his session. He also delivered a very important message and I know our delegates took a lot away from his presentation. Even more importantly Nick really worked in partnership with us. He engaged with our delegates long before the event via social media and email and I think that is really important for any speaker. He really got to know our target audience and therefore knew exactly how to pitch the presentation. I would not hesitate in recommending Nick for any event!
I have had the pleasure of working with many of the high-profiled conference speakers. Nick ranks among the very best speakers I’ve ever encountered. His speech on the topic of leadership style and its impact on the organisation have influenced industry leaders in many parts of the world. Nick is an electrifying public speaker. His passion for the subject matter is infectious. Nick has deep professional expertise, and it shows.
