After a scholarship to Gordonstoun, a degree from Sussex University and a short career in professional yachting - I qualified as a solicitor and practised in the City of London at Hobson Audley - then in Midtown at Lane & Partners before starting my own firm in 1998 outside Brighton in Sussex UK.
Working out how to practice law efficiently using the technology of the mid 1990s lead me towards expertise in voice recognition and management information systems.
An old friend - now Lord Saville of Newdigate - suggested I should sell the law firm management system I had created to run my new firm to others - which commenced a process which culminated in the establishment of Deskspace Limited and selling our first system to a medical practice in early 2000.
Since then I have developed and sold business management systems for lawyers and other professionals, pursued a Patent Application, obtained Trade Marks in the EU and USA and learned a great deal about how US Attorney's run their practices.
I have developed a mobile application framework for a new generation of Deskspace software.
I have developed a fast mobile friendly CMS system for the management of web sites, designed for use by non-expert users.
What are my biggest professional achievements?
Creating the world's fastest and simplest Web Content Management System.
"Nick has an extremely insightful mind, he is able to cut to the chase and the key issues and to prioritise the various competing factors. He is a lateral thinker and often thinks of possible solutions or strategies that would not have occurred to most others.
He also has a very wide knowledge and range of experiences in a number of fields.
His background as a lawyer is very helpful as is his knowledge of the legalities and management side of business as well as an innate and intuitive understanding of the psychology of how people operate. He also has a very human touch and understands the “people qualities” and what motivates and is important to people."
