McConville Risk Solutions
I’m a sole trader who runs a consulting business, so I wasn’t sure if business coaching was for me, I thought it might have been only for the businesses at the top end of town! However, after only a short time working with Nicholas, I found him to be an incredible mentor, able to relate to my business needs. He really challenged me to look at my entire business, rather than the obvious parts. He challenged my thinking, my beliefs and my ideas, then he would add his own touch the discussion. The example that springs to mind is don’t always ask why something didn’t work, ask why it did work, look at what you did right, not always at what you can improve on. The How and Why as he often referred to it.
The action plans he provided were concise and easy to read and understand, not written in another language, and at the start of every session we would recap to see what was completed and if there were any issues.
This was a very positive experience and I can’t speak more highly of Nicholas. I am so appreciative of the feedback, advice, suggestions and guidance he provided and feel now that I have a good handle on how to move my business forward.
I couldn’t recommend Nicholas more highly to anyone looking for a business coach, regardless of the industry or the size of your business.
Nicholas has been an amazing mentor to me during some of the most challenging and difficult times of my business career. His positivity, insight, leadership skills, wealth of experience all helped me to navigate the obstacles of a start-up and move into a growth phase. He gave me the confidence and support to move beyond just me doing everything into now having a team of 3 and ensuring my business in events survived Covid and all of the hurdles it threw to my industry. I couldn't recommend Nicholas enough and I am so grateful to have his experience, suggestions and feedback as a vital part of my business.
The Hellenic Odyssey
As a small business owner I have worked with many mentors, but none with the level of expertise of Nicholas.
Nicholas is attentive, thorough, supportive, informative and extremely knowledgeable in many areas of business. Nicholas will provide you with a realistic framework and will give you anticipated outcomes and goals with step by step action items. I always felt supported throughout all the mentoring with Nicholas and I also felt each session was so well utilised with either a variety of dot points talked about or a focus on a particular project; whichever I needed at the time.
I highly recommend utilising Nicholas in your business as a mentor or coach, as my experience with him was truly outstanding.
Nick's strong facilitation skills kept us true to our vision and opened up discussions that were integral in ensuring our partnership and business model could be successful financially and personally both now AND into the future. He helped us strengthen our business model through challenging our perceived market needs, our capabilities and putting in the foundation to absorb risk and from which to grow. He asked the difficult questions that made us think!
He isn't about all talk and planning either, he is about implementation, taking some risk, learning and improving. Everyone needs someone like Nick to hold you accountable to that fundamental boring stuff that actually enables you reap the rewards of the exciting product development stuff. He has helped us make our idea a commercial and successful possibility...and he's a nice guy! Thanks Nick!

Nicholas was really lovely and fun to work with. My small hobby business imported herbal products from Java and was badly impacted by Covid. Nicholas helped me analyse whether it was worth pursuing given the extent of restructuring required and the effort it would take to make the products locally in Melbourne.
He shared lots of his knowledge and experiences with me, drew my attention to some of the realities of upscaling the business and put me in touch with people who thoroughly understood the industry I was operating in. The experience allowed me to assess the situation accurately and make some difficult but very necessary decisions about the future of the business. I am really happy that I had the chance to work with Nicholas - his positive mindset and friendliness lifted my spirits while we were working through the issues.
I feel confident that we made the right decision and am glad we did the additional research and business analysis before I pursued it any further. It was clear that Nicholas was genuinely interested in understanding my situation and wanted to achieve the best possible outcome for me. I highly recommend speaking with Nicholas before embarking on new business ventures.

Thank you Nicholas for your time, knowledge and insight.
The sessions have been very valuable for me as a sole trader.
I was able to gain a constructive perspective of my business and Nicholas gave me the opportunity to not only think about today, but also tomorrow.
We touched on a variety of subjects relating to the building and development of the business, it was very enlightening. I now have a broader understanding of the business world and its “do’s” and “dont’s”.
From content on a website, to quote via email, I was able to gain constructive information and tools to work with.
I am very grateful I was given the opportunity to access this information.
And I am also grateful it was delivered the way it was. Thank you Nicholas.
