Recommendations for Nick Anderson

Principal of The Crispian Advantage

“Nick has a passion for getting people into alignment, which enhances relationships and facilitates results!”
Michael Oswald, Managing Partner, InnovaCounsel; Board Member, Genesis World Mission. Michael was with another company when working with Nick at The Crispian Advantage

“I have been very fortunate to work with Nick Anderson in a couple of different capacities. He has been an extremely helpful executive coach, and he has, personally, mentored me in change management. In addition, he has been an excellent presenter at our local ATD.

Nick’s book is a practical guide to change manage that is a must read for anyone who is leading, participating, or experiencing technology, process, or people changes – Nick is a cutting edge expert on the topic!”

Tim Cormier, Senior Organizational Development/Training Specialist at Blue Cross of Idaho. Nick was a consultant to Tim at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Idaho

“I had the privilege of hearing Nick Anderson speak at the local Project Management Institute Chapter meeting. As a new member of the chapter I wasn’t sure what to expect from the speaker and had every intention of leaning back in my seat, possibly jotting down a few notes. But as Nick’s presentation concluded I was struck by 3 things: 1) I had just taken 5 pages of notes and was amazed that 45min had just past! 2) Nick Anderson has a gift, his dry sense of humor and engaging presentation style made for an enjoyable and memorable evening. 3) I wish my fellow employees could have heard this material firsthand. Nick’s observations about measuring change, aligning expectations, and getting to the heart of data confusion have already had a significant and positive impact on how I run my department. I still have 3 quotes from his presentation on my whiteboard!”

I strongly recommend Nick Anderson as bringing real value to organizations and their people.”
