WHY WE ASKED HIM TO SPEAK
Nic is one of those abstract thinkers and story tellers you just have to see speak. He is a true entrepreneur who never holds back from telling it like he sees it. As a result of starting many different businesses in his life, he has gained an enormous amount of experience. When you combine this with his journalist background, you have a very entertaining speaker on your hands who knows exactly what he’s talking about.
