Thanks Nigel. You are being very fair on the fees for your services.
Simar Bharaj – Finance Director, Pitman Training Group
Hi Nigel, just wanted to say thank you for your help today, it has made a very challenging task much easier to explain!
Carmel Duff - Chief Executive, Phoenix Domestic Abuse and Support Services Limited
One of the best business plans I've seen for years - clear & concise. The financials add to and bring structure to the plan, and are easy to understand. It was the clarity of the plan that initially attracted us to the investment opportunity.
Dr Andrew Oldfield MBA, Mercia Fund Management
It soon became evident that the office was not functioning to Alcoa standard and Mr Nicoll was recruited to address the issues and ensure that the operation passed external audit. We believe that the administration office is now well positioned to fully support the business due to the intensive effort made. We would strongly recommend Mr Nicoll to any company requiring third party expertise in the areas of finance or business admin.
Paolo Bellotto, Sales and Marketing Director, Alcoa Europe Primary BU
Nigel has been working as a consultant for Pitman Training Group for many years now, and I have been working with him for the last 5 years. He has been involved in auditing our franchise network, and in particular looking for any mis-declaration of income. I have found his work to be of a high quality, and it has required a tactful but firm approach from him.
Paul Crompton - Finance Director, Pitman Training Group Plc
During the time he has been employed by ABG I have learned to value Nigel’s good advice and calm demeanor. He is the type of person who, if set a challenge, whether a deadline or task, will always accept it and overachieve.
Paolo G Bellotto, General Manager, Alcoa Building Group
I met Nigel at the time I was establishing a new business venture and relied on him to undertake the business planning necessary to attract both investors and lenders to the proposition. With his assistance I was able to raise £250K of equity investment, supported by the same amount of SFLGS loan and a substantial invoice factoring facility from a specialist lender.
Annette Hosking, CEO, Earth to Earth Ltd
I have known Nigel Nicoll and this company (NFS) for over ten years and can honestly say that he produces what he promises. NFS have been extremely successful in sourcing funding for our franchise partners and have done so on a number of occasions. NFS produces excellent business plans for the new franchise partners and can provide accountancy assistance as well as the funding provision. I have absolutely no hesitation in endorsing them to all our new franchise partners and I cannot supply any higher recommendation than that.
Mike Cressey - Franchise Development Manager, Pitman Training Group Plc
Nigel is a highly commercial finance expert and is a natural in business. I have worked with Nigel on an off since the mid-90s and on each occasion he has made a significant contribution to improving profitability, raising standards, and in delivering tangible benefits for share and stake holders alike. Nigel brings common sense, professionalism, leadership, a widebusiness background, and a proven track record in turnaround management and fund raising, to every challenge presented. I look forward to working with Nigel again in the future.
Mark O'Connor - Interim FD, Alcoa
Nigel, Thanks for all your help with the business plan. If you are ever short of a reference (which I'm sure you are not) I would be very happy to provide.
