Nicola is also co-director of Vortex Creates,  producers of large scale costumes and extraordinary design and decor. Not only do we benefit from her wonderfully original designer’s eye and skill set, but decades of experience in education, training and people management make her an invaluable asset to any culture changing project.

Her ability to combine creative and critical thinking with highly disciplined organisational skills makes her a killer culture changer.

Michael is the creator of Game Change Leaders. He has a tremendous ability not only to analyse and then action how the human brain learns and functions most effectively, but is then able to reflect and explain back to clients the process that he sees – an enormous bonus to any culture changing project he is involved in.
