I invited Nigel to our corporate strategic workshop to share his experience of being held as a hostage for 462 days in Somalia. My goal was to provide my team and myself with a better perspective of why your family is so important and of the opportunities, people and things we each take for granted everyday. Nigel's presentation was brilliantly presented to us while we enjoyed dinner; he spoke from the heart and made the entire audience including waiters and waitresses pause to listen. He combined this with some video, images and audio phone calls to create what I would frame as one of the most moving presentations I have ever witnessed. I can't recommend Nigel enough. It was an amazing journey he shared with us. Wiley & Co
