"More often than not the challenge is not identifying the long term vision, it is how to get there. We very much see ourselves as in the trenches with our clients, sleeves rolled up helping to build value, negotiating deals and doing the work to get to that next inflection point."

testimonials

"Can’t thank you enough for the superb facilitation Nick. It exceeded my already high expectations. It was world class. The clear strategic plan we achieved and the communication techniques you showed us are already making a huge impact here. I feel privileged to get this opportunity to work with you and observe the mastery in process."

Dr. Michael Winlo, CEO, Linear Clinical Research

“Chrysalis Advisory provides an extremely professional and comprehensive suite of business services. Nick Northcott is a rarity. He always delivers, goes the extra mile for his clients, and is generous with his time, energy and contacts. In a matter of months, Nick has become my most trusted advisor. He is genuinely interested in assisting others to achieve their goals. I recommend Nick and his team without hesitation.”

Laura Keily, Barrister and Entrepreneur, BSc, LLB (Hons), MCommrclLaw, GAICD

Nick Northcott expertly facilitated a one-day meeting and workshop bringing together a diverse range of stakeholders across the clinical trials sector. The meeting was the first of its kind and Nick ensured the meeting delivered above and beyond on all objectives, including scoping six high quality projects and setting the tone and high expectations for future events. Nick also provided professional advice and assistance in meeting preparation as well as consolidating the meeting output and crucially identifying a pathway to action via an instructive report. We really look forward to working with Nick again!

Leanne Weekes, Programme Director, Clinical Trials Impact & Quality

“I engaged Nick’s services in 2017, to assist me in transitioning from a technical expert role into one of being a manager and executive team member of a large organization. It was a great decision. Nick is an attentive listener, he is honest and thoughtful. I trust him wholeheartedly. His broad knowledge, experience in organizations and authenticity have helped me develop the skills needed for my role, many of which were new to me – strategic recruitment, change and project management and having difficult conversations, to name a few. He has always made himself available to me during the challenging moments I have faced. I recommend his services as a coach for any new executive manager without reservation.”

"Nick has presented as the ‘complete package’. This is a rare blend of technical expertise, emotional and social quotient, higher educational insights, challenging behaviour and the display of a genuine interest in what we want to achieve."

“I have recently worked with both Allison and Nick at Chrysalis Advisory. I consider myself to be a hard taskmaster and I am very impressed. Firstly, I was kept up to date on the status of the matter and with costs at all relevant times. This is very important to me when I brief out a matter. Communication and feedback is essential. Secondly, Allison and Nick are extremely professional and efficient. We conducted a lot of meetings over video on the computer, which was productive and less costly. Thirdly, the matter they dealt with was complex, with a significant degree of technical language and operational networks and also intricate cultural issues. I was impressed with the way they were able to easily master the core issues within a short period of time. Fourthly, the report that was produced at the conclusion of the matter was of a high standard. It was thorough and easy to understand, with supported reasoning. I would recommend Chrysalis Advisory to anyone seeking a professional and high quality workplace investigation to be conducted. Last but not least, both Allison and Nick are delightful people and working with them is a pleasure.”

"Allison handled my case with care and sensitivity, wanting to ensure that me, and the other party, were treated fairly at all times. She was very well-prepared with a robust process that seeks to establish the facts through a series of in-depth interviews and a review of other artefacts."

"Chrysalis Advisory was very responsive to an urgent request we had to help us investigate a complex staff harassment matter. Allison and her team were professional, thorough and worked through the issues in a reasonable timeframe for all concerned."

Board Member Global Not for Profit organisation,

“I have worked with Chrysalis Advisory since early 2019 on a number of different projects drawing on their professional and excellent services in the areas of strategy, organisation design, and facilitation. In that time, I have thoroughly enjoyed building a trusted relationship with them. I know they place the best interest of the organisation I lead at the heart of their advice. I highly value the integrity of their approach, their open, candid and direct style, and their ability to deeply listen and seek to understand. They are experts in what they do, enablers of transformation, with a sharp skill for surfacing core issues, challenging assumptions, synthesising, and focusing on root causes and levers that can be truly transformational for an organisation.

Whilst I have worked more often with Nick, I have found both Nick and Allison an absolute pleasure to work with. They bring a valued mix of sharpness and kindness to all the work we have done together. I look forward to working with them again soon, and I highly recommend them to anyone seeking high quality strategic advice.”
