Nikki Squire

What is Nikki’s experience?

Nikki is an accredited coach, trainer and facilitator with extensive international experience working with law firms (from boutique to Magic Circle), banks and corporates.

She delivers dynamic results orientated training programmes and works with clients as a facilitator to effect lasting change. As a coach, she works predominantly with Board members, partners and those seeking progression to partnership and in the provision of maternity coaching.

As a former M&A partner of two multinational law firms, Nikki has a real understanding of the context in which her clients operate. She spent eight years with Clifford Chance in London and Hong Kong, before joining the partnerships of Deacons Graham & James in Hong Kong and then Rowe & Maw (now Mayer Brown) on her return to London.

After leaving private practice, Nikki retrained as a professional actor and spent five years working on the London stage. This has equipped her with communication tools and techniques for creating presence and personal impact which, where appropriate, she can share with her clients.

What inspires Nikki’s work?

Nikki  is passionate about an individual leaving a training or coaching session feeling more positive and better equipped than when they came in, with specific tools for improving productivity and happiness at work. She is committed to breaking down nebulous concepts, like confidence, into something practical and manageable which can be addressed. She strives to help her clients differentiate between personality and habits, recognizing that what may be viewed as integral to personality is often simply a habit which can be changed, often with profound impact.
