There is no better skill set than that of experience. Despite her youthful looks (she told us to write that), our MD has over 15 years of first-hand encounters as a talented leader and manager in the public and charity sectors.
Nicky LOVES learning and sharing that love with others. She’s so obsessed with learning, in her spare time she even teaches her Burmese cats. By 9-months old, they come when called, sit and do ‘high-five’. She’s working on getting them to answer the phone.
Nicky established McCrudden Training after realising there was a gap in the market for unique and fun learning opportunities provided by an external partner who delivered as though they were an internal colleague. Her unwavering dedication to effective but enjoyable learning has won her an impressive collection of prestigious national and regional awards over the last decade (link to awards page)
A healthy balance of strong academic skills, combined with enthusiasm and a unique creative flair, is complemented with a love of chocolate that she even shares with her learners. When she’s not working, Nicky can be found indulging her passion for photographing big cats or running (fit fitness, not away from said big cats), swimming, and in warmer climates, diving.
