About Nicky Pattinson

Nicky Pattinson began her career as a humble shoe shop assistant in Huddersfield at 16 years old. She later became the country’s most successful lady market trader and Nicky now teaches clients ranging from Tesco to large law firms and software companies how to disarm, connect and be remembered by anyone, anytime – crucial skills in the crowded modern world. A successful businesswoman, she’s filled theatres, appeared many times on TV and radio and is often mistaken for a stand up comedienne.

Biography

Nicky Pattinson was born in Holmfirth Yorkshire, the daughter of a farmer. Failing academically in grand style she started her working life in a Clarks shoe shop. Selling more shoes in one day than most could in a week, there was the talent. This pattern of unstoppable success continued, creating a £2,000,000 a year market stall business with her ex-husband. Nicky built this from scratch in a mere 2 years.

A series of personal tragedies later rendered Nicky penniless, but modifying what she’d learned and reapplying it in other industries, Nicky went on once again to create millions in revenue for corporate sales. Her projects have seen sales triple in Tesco, Selfridges, Law firms and many large corporate entities. Now a keynote speaker, Nicky is adept at bottling up her knowledge and insights and distributing it among audiences of thousands in the UK, U.S and on zoom across the globe.

Testimonials

"Nicky is a one off with an unusual gift."

Julian Richer - Founder/Managing Director, Richer Sounds

"We’ve had a lot of speaker trainers over the years. But none like Nicky. A friend for life because she changes your life."

Joanne Falconer - Service Assistant, Kingston Communications

"Nicky is outstanding. No …seriously outstanding. Life-changing, hilarious and electric."

John Liddle - Sales Director, Moda In Pelle

"She’s teaching us to ‘elevate our Charisma’ and she’s on fire as usual. Another hurdle overcome for me. Telling my story so people will want to listen."

Ritchie S. Moore - Wellbeing Expert

"There are speakers who come and enlighten you.Leave and are forgotten. There are true performers who happen to have a message we all need to hear. Nicky is the latter. A cross between a comedienne and a kind of ‘sales evangelist’. Her relaxed style and unusual words have you laughing one minute and moved the next. There are few who could be one day selling buns on Tesco’s shop floor and the next suited and speaking to 600 at the British Library. She spoke on the same bill as some of the biggest names in the audio industry at Radio Festival London and without doubt proved herself to be world class that day."

Roger Cutsforth - M.D. of Radio Academy

"Through the principles of communication Nicky created at World Duty Free. Miracles happened. Literally some lines were up 1000% week on week versus before she arrived. Just the lines we tracked added a whopping £4,000,000 in add on sales in one year. An unforgettable and hilarious character. The most honest you’d meet and an unusual genius of her craft."

Paul Williams - Training Manager, Christian Dior

"Nicky Pattinson is the legend you may not have heard of. Until now. Sharp, focussed driven and hilarious when she needs to be. Never before have I heard bites of spot on wisdom so eloquently packaged in ways that pierce ones defences and set them on fire. She has electrified and related to my own audiences as a guest trainer and earned my wrapt attention as we grow tut.com."

Mike Dooley - Tut.com

"I met Nicky 20 years ago when I created Propaganda when from cold she created nearly £1,000,000 in sales in one year. She then went on to triple sales in Selfridges for my make-up brand. She knows her stuff.  A genius. A mesmerising and hilarious speaker and a generous one off. Book her."

Julian Kynaston - Founder Propaganda, Entrepeneur

"I’ve seen them all. Desmond Tutu and Bill Clinton to name but two. Nobody but NOBODY had the charisma the wit… the heart that Nicky Pattinson has when she speaks. At all costs get in that audience."

About Alex Alley

Alex Alley, since returning from the around the world Global Challenge with a team, continues to push himself by embarking on new adventures including an incredible solo around the world record attempt where he spent 76 days alone at sea. As a leader and adventurer, Alex captivates his audience with his dramatic tales and has them on the edge of their seats. As a natural leader he helps management teams to thrive and become resilient within their workplaces.

Biography

Alex Alley has an amazing drive and passion for all things ‘Ocean,’ but his real strength is bringing it to life within the business world.

A pioneer of the new discipline of Adventure Psychology™ he imparts his knowledge and experience to help people and businesses to ‘Go Knowingly into the Unknown’ ™

He cleverly brings to life the analogy between sailing and business and draws out the lessons from world class yacht racing – ‘we are literally all in the same boat, with a skipper/CEO in charge. We all have to cope with competition and when things don’t go to plan we still have to deal with it.’ His unique style keeps the audience captivated while instilling powerful lessons. Whatever the level of seniority, there is always learning to be had.

After 9 years of hard work, tenacity, resilience and an unfailing desire never to give up, Alex returned from his biggest adventure to date. A professional sailor all his life, he set off from the UK on what was to be a dramatic adventure into the Atlantic on his crowd funded Class 40 race yacht. His aim – to break a Solo Non-Stop Around the World record.

However, after 75 days alone at sea and having covered over 14,000 miles, disaster struck, and he was forced to abandon the record attempt 1000 miles south of Australia in the middle of the Southern Ocean. Very few people have spent longer alone at sea. Pushing himself and the boat to the limit 24 hours a day proved too much for some of the equipment onboard. Rebuilding his autopilot and watermaker to keep going, Alex reveals what drove him on.

Multiple World Record and World Champion sailor, Round the World Yachtsman, and co-author of Boat to Boardroom, Alex Alley has spoken at conferences and helped companies all over the world, from sales teams to the boardroom, from charities to some of the world’s biggest blue-chip companies.

Alex’s Books:

7 Racing Rules

How to win in business and in life.

If these 7 Racing Rules can work for Alex in the extreme circumstances his has encountered, they can certainly work for the rest of us.  Topics covered include delivering the best for your team, debating and identifying ultimate goals and choosing your attitude. This book is refreshing and applies technics from real life stories on the ocean, to help you in the business world.

Boat to Boardroom

High performances lessons for leaders and teams using the Global Challenge Round- the- World Yacht Race.

Ten hours into the race. It’s 02.00 and pitch black with a Force 8 Gale blowing. Team Stelmar are battling with heavy seas and stormy weather: the wind and spray are lashing the crew on deck, the helm struggles to control the boat and it lurches violently from wave to wave. Suddenly, a shout of ‘MAN OVERBOARD’ jerks the off watch out of their restless sleep… You are the skipper; how would you prepare for this looming disaster?

"Thank you so much for creating an electric atmosphere that stayed throughout the whole night. Our eyes were transfixed!"

Travel Counsellors

"The most wonderful act I have ever seen."

Lloyds Group

"What a great act! Lumina was a dream to work with."

Worldspan International

"The second evening began in dynamic and mesmerising fashion with an eye-catching opening. Quite unannounced, an electric violin player named Lumina played along with a stirring soundtrack. During a stunning laser light show, a hand-held laser appeared to be shining from the bow of her instrument and the effect was extraordinary, even in front of a hardened trade audience."

Mark Ritchie, The Stage

"The city's most noted and quoted pack attended a Landmark party on Friday night at which British pop diva Leona Lewis took the stage. Kicking off the show, a stunning violinist playing with a laser beam really grabbed the attention of the audience who were previously chatting over champagne and canapes."

South China Morning Post

"Lumina was great to work with - we appreciated her flexibility in the set-up time and her performance was absolutely wonderful. Please pass on our thanks."

Absolut

"Please would you pass on my thanks to Lumina Duel for their participation in the FLP event at the O2 on Saturday. The event was prone to delays and sudden changes in timing and they were all unfailingly patient and co-operative. I am so grateful for their professionalism and the good grace with which they got through both days. The volume of the applause after they had finished just served to further prove how incredible their performance was."

About Rachel de Thame

Rachel de Thame has authored multiple books on the subject of gardening, including Small Town Gardens and Rachel de Thame’s Top 100 Star Plants. She has held horticultural columns and contributed to gardening pages of The Sunday Times, The Daily Telegraph and Gardener’s World Magazine.

Biography

Rachel de Thame began her career studying ballet to a professional standard at the Royal Ballet School, but after a prolonged bout of glandular fever was forced to give up her dream of a dancing career.

Rachel then turned her studies to History of Art at City Lit. and spent a short period working for a well respected international firm of art dealers in London.   However, she was soon spotted by model agency Laraine Ashton, later IMG, and enjoyed a long and successful modelling career.

A major part of Rachel’s modelling included an increasing number of appearances in television commercials and casting agents soon began to suggest Rachel for acting roles.  By 1988, she had appeared in the mini series “Merlin” and in the British feature film “Bodywork”.

However, as a long term career, acting was not Rachel’s ideal choice so late in 1998 she enrolled at the English Gardening School, indulging an inherited passion from her father who is an exceptional gardener.  Graduating with a distinction in Practical Horticulture and Plants & Plantsmanship, auditions for BBC2’s Gardener’s World followed and the rest, as they say is history.

Rachel is married with three children and lives in London.

About Swarzy Macaly

Swarzy Macaly has a passion for social justice and community. Following her involvement as a volunteer towards the Grenfell Tower tragedy in 2017, she has also contributed to Paddy O’Connell’s paper review on Radio 4, hosted the BBC Bitesize School’s Tour, and presented two BBC documentaries: ‘Me VS Climate Change‘ and ‘Instagramification‘.

Biography

Swarzy Macaly began her radio career after she won a national competition hosted by

commercial network KISS to become the next KISS Chosen One presenter. After winning in 2016, Swarzy went on to present KISS Breakfast every Saturday and Sunday morning from 8-11am, host the red carpet at the BRIT Awards 2019 and interview some of the biggest names in the pop industry including Dua Lipa, Pink, and Anne-Marie.

As well as her love for music, it was Swarzy’s heartfelt response to the pandemic and the murder of George Floyd that grabbed her listeners and led to her launching KISS’ first ever speech radio show: KISS Life. The revolutionary programme aired every Sunday evening at 9pm and gave Swarzy the platform to engage with her listeners and unpack everything from the pandemic to politics, culture and identity, through to money and mental health. Special guests included founder of Black Pound Day Swiss, finance expert Martin Lewis, Grenfell United, John Barnes, and more whilst keeping young people at the front of centre of every conversation.

KISS Life proved to be one of Swarzy’s career highlights as the series showcased her versatility, showing she could bring the energy and music passion needed for a Breakfast Show to the authenticity and warmth crucial for speech radio in the evening.

Alongside radio and in response to Covid-19 and the first national lockdown in 2020, Swarzy became the official presenter of My Life My Say’s Quarantine Question Time and hosted a range of political conversations with special guests including Sir Keir Starmer, Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, Munya Chawawa, Reverend Al Sharpton, as well as Former White House Chief of Staff and Counsellor to President Obama, John Podesta. In addition to hosting MLMS’ annual Common Futures Forum, Swarzy has become a trustee of the charity and joined forces to launch MLMS’s first live chat show, Make It Make Sense. 

Swarzy is the founder of Too Much Source – an annual exhibition with live events dedicated to celebrating Black British creatives who are making history today. To mark the third anniversary of Too Much Source, the gallery was named ‘Joy and Resilience in 2020’ – a dedication to two attributes that remain central to the black experience – all in partnership with Roundhouse, KISS, and BBC Creative. As a result of the exhibition’s success and positive engagement, Swarzy has gone on to work with many brands and companies to host workshops, live events, and panel discussions for Somerset House, The Barbican, Boxpark, Jazz FM, and SOHO House, to name a few. She is now a very experienced and sought-after Event Host, Moderator and Keynote Speaker.

Swarzy is a storyteller at heart and given her interest in sport and athletes, it was no surprise that she was chosen by DAZN to present their new weekly boxing show “From The Corner” on JOE Media.  However, Swarzy’s relationship with sports and stories began when she won yet another competition to become the official presenter for Midnight Madness – the UK’s biggest summer basketball competition, showcasing the best in British hoops and entertainment. She has since covered British basketball at home for the BBL as well as traveling with those from Team GB to Quai 54 in Paris, The Reality Check Tournament in

Germany, before taking the MM Summer Team to Portugal where players landed pro-contracts. This fuelled her passion when presenting grassroots basketball also as Swarzy worked with the Community Basketball League, interviewing U12-U25 players to follow the journey and encourage the next generation of British basketball talent.

In 2021, Swarzy won Best Presenter at the UK Entertainment Awards. This recognition followed on from Lord Simon Woolley recognising Swarzy for her charisma, passion for young people and social justice, and her work with My Life My Say and so nominated her to be part of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s list of Black History Month Next Generation Trailblazers 2020.

Swarzy kickstarted 2022 by hosting the London New Year’s Day Parade 2022 on live TV, broadcast to millions of viewers across the UK and USA.

Known for her infectious joy and ability to bring rooms and conversations to life, Swarzy is the perfect MC, Moderator or Keynote Speaker for major events, in person and online.
