Previously a Director of Icarus Collective Ltd, Nicola managed and contributed to a wide range of UK-based consultancy projects, specialising in impact measurement, stakeholder engagement and partnership working. Her clients included government bodies, national charities, local authorities, research foundations and national think-tanks.
