He attends all meetings prepared with the knowledge of the agenda and focuses on all issues in a professional manner that drives our charity in a new direction.  Nick has shared his knowledge and expertise in all important matters and is advocating well for our charity.  His daughter now attends our dance classes, so he sees the charity business from the point of view now as a customer which has proved invaluable for improving our systems.” Emma Mallam, Motion Control Dance
