Louise Nicolaou
Learning & Development Consultant

Louise has been in training for more than 20 years. Starting out as a professional dancer, she travelled the world and obtained a fantastic understanding of becoming a powerful communicator, influencer and ultimately a motivator to people. This combined with her fundamental belief that everyone has the ability to develop; she makes a positive impact on all who work and train with her.


Using experience gained from working within a diverse sector of industries: from entertainment, to retail to financial institutions and from being a leader, a seller, and specific training roles, Louise brings depth and variety to her training. A naturally energetic person, her passion for development is infectious to all that attend her training.  Her preferred style is to deliver training through discussion, activities and fun, whilst making links from the classroom back to the real world of the delegates workplace.


Since deciding to venture away from her corporate role in Barclays to become a freelance coach and trainer, Louise has obtained NLP practitioner status, qualified with a level 5 coaching and mentoring diploma and is authorised to conduct and deliver SDI profiling. With these accreditations she has been able to use her experience to support organisations in firstly identifying needs, implementing solutions and finally where appropriate, to embed the learning through one to one coaching. She has also recently designed a series of core internal training modules for a global organisation which was subsequently translated into 12 other languages.
