James Eagle created his Nickell consultancy business in the UK back in 2003 and for the past 6 years has been doing similar here in Australia. The idea of expanding the business into running retreats for individuals who are looking for something different, some healthily-selfishness and some proper time to reflect, recharge and rejuvenate had been on James’ agenda for a few years so launching Nickell Business Coaching Retreats earlier this year has been a hugely significant milestone for James and his wife Nick, who is the other driving force behind this latest business venture.
Although James’ consistent advice to businesses is to always be wary of employing members of your family, James and Nick make a pretty formidable team when it comes to designing, organising and running 3-4 day workshop-style retreats. Nick’s passion and undoubted ability to create magical food and to ensure the whole event runs like absolute clockwork coupled with James’ impressive ‘frontman’ ability has helped create an event that has surpassed even their wildest dreams and expectations.
Always looking for new ways to keep the retreats relevant and hugely value-adding for all that attend, James and Nick continue to work together on sourcing new ideas, activities, speakers and locations to make the NBC Retreats truly memorable and unique.
‘The feedback we have received from what we have done so far has been incredibly gratifying and humbling and just wants us to do even more of the same. We have set a very high bar but when it’s a passion and you know you are delivering something people are getting huge value from, it comes that much easier. We never thought people would leave the retreat saying we had changed their lives, but that’s exactly the feedback we have been getting. Amazing’
