When meeting new people professionally I am often asked to "tell me a little about yourself" which for someone with my depth and diversity of experience is always difficult to know where to start - and stop!

Ever the problem-solver, I decided to work on my escalator pitch - because clearly an elevator ride was not long enough! I landed on four key areas that I felt best summed up me personally and professionally - or as I came to call them 'the four circles of Nigel.'
