Hello, I’m Nicola. I have been running Strong Enterprises for over 16 years. It came from my combined experience as a informations systems consultant and my work developing social innovation projects for the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce

I work in three ways:

First: I create and research on-line or blended learning programmes for distributed or virtual groups. There are real opportunities to enable transparent technology in the working and learning process. This connects to Social Business Design (which is the study of how to weave the intentions of an organisation with society and new technologies). It includes the growing intelligence in employee engagement using ESNs, Simulations with serious games, infographics with data analytics, Experientials with Augmented Reality (AR) and the ethics of Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Second: I maintain the belief and importance of developing face-to-face training courses and facilitating human-lead-real-time workshops. I have been doing this for a while now (years, in fact) and have worked in many spaces and places.

Third: I develop and support knowledge sharing opportunities to work together, crowd source, debate ideas, thoughts and solutions on big topics and issues. My two current areas of interest are:
– the mystery of employee engagement specifically though social media
– the utopia and dystopia of artificial intelligence and robo-psychology

I have a network of talented and skilled colleagues and associates who join me in some of my projects and I am privileged to be an associate to other teams too.

I am member of the British Computer Society, Association for Business Psychology and a qualified Coach, Facilitator and Consultant. She has a BSc(Hons) in Information and Computing Systems and a MSc in Change Agent Skills and Strategies (CASS) at Surrey University.
