Nick enjoys working with clients and audiences to give them the best possible experience, whether live presenting, chairing/moderating panel discussions or in recording audio/visual work.
Nick has interviewed cabinet ministers, CEOs of multinational corporations, world-famous personalities (Madonna, Halle Berry, Bruce Willis and Mick Jagger among others) and is capable of adapting his pitch to match the expectations of any client.
Nick also writes speeches and can offer one-to-one public speaking training and confidence coaching.
"We hold a number of events throughout the year and we are all too aware of how important it is to have a speaker who is not only engaging, charismatic and professional but is also able to create an atmosphere and maintain it. We hired Nick Wallis for some of our regional business awards and he was all of the above. Not only did the audience love him but he knew exactly how to keep everything going, moving things along when needed, giving people time when needed, he was an absolute pleasure and professional to work with. I felt completely relaxed leaving Nick to run the stage and would not hesitate to use him again in future." - Susie Marshall, Johnston Press South Events.
"Nick was an entertaining and effective host who spent time mastering the brief and understanding the topics under discussion. I would have no hesitation in recommending him as an MC and facilitator for any corporate event." - Trevor Dann, Director, The Radio Academy.
"Nick’s input into our Awards was integral to the success of the event. It’s fair to say he held our hands throughout, producing, scripting, editing and rehearsing the whole process; I didn’t even realise how much work was involved and it’s testament to his experience that he saw all the details required to execute an awards ceremony with such clarity and organisation. The end result was a slick, well rehearsed awards ceremony, presented smoothly by Nick who both put the audience at ease and added some star quality at the same time.” - Melissa Cogavin, Managing Director, Event Cinema Association.
"Public speaking training with Nick Wallis was a truly uplifting experience. Being an ex- international sportsperson turned business owner, it is easy to assume that presenting to an audience comes naturally to me. In fact, the truth is quite the opposite... Through Nick’s unwavering patience, calm coaching style and natural charisma, he was able to gradually and systematically help me to formulate my life story, drawing out the important events, delving into the relevant detail and helping me to prioritise and deliver my key messages, all the while challenging me and encouraging me to improve my public speaking abilities. I learnt much from Nick in our session, including the valuable lesson that in business, as in sport, the right coach and mentor is essential to ensuring a successful result. I would not hesitate to call on Nick’s support in the future and encourage others to do the same.” - Brett Schulz, former South African fast bowler.
"We work with senior people in large businesses so it’s vital our team are professional, efficient, responsive, reliable and can manage clients' expectations while delivering the best service possible. Nick possesses all these qualities. He is great to work with and in particular his business interviewing abilities are highly skilled reflecting his friendly and intelligent personality, essential to relax interviewees and produce the best content." - Russell Pockett, Production Director, Brand Conversation.
"Nick is a joy to work with and can self produce with just the shortest of briefings. We always know that he'll deliver just what we need - concise, witty, relevant reports and insightful interviews with just the right people. Nick is a real asset to the team and we're always glad to work with him." - Georgina Hall, Sony Radio Academy Awards Secretariat.
"It was with some trepidation I viewed our Democracy Day. Traditionally six schools send a group of 15-16 year olds for a Q+A session in the style of Question Time. The host must empathise with the pupils and be authoritative and focused with the panel. My fears were groundless as Nick Wallis took charge instantly. The mention of his work on Radio 1 had the students’ attention which he kept for whole session. The panel were given just enough time to make their points but allowed no deviation. We would certainly use him again if he is available – and I have learned a great way to warm up an audience!" - Cllr Richard Mantle, Mayor of Reigate and Banstead.
