Nick Lewis is a communications professional with over 15 years’ experience of working in both the private and public sector. He was named as No. 28 in Sage’s Top 100 Global Business Influencers List for 2017.
Nick started his career in his gap year when he worked in Westminster as an intern for the Liberal Democrat Policy Unit. He subsequently went on to study at the University of Wales Swansea, where he got two degrees: a Bachelor of Arts in Politics and a Masters of Economic Science in European Politics (for which he received a bursary from the Economic and Social Research Council). During this period, Nick also worked in the constituency office of his then local MP Dr. Evan Harris and for the Vale of White Horse District Council and Oxfordshire County Council in political roles, from which he got his grounding in public relations.
Two years then followed at Oxford Analytica, an online political think tank, where Nick was Editorial Co-ordinator for the Oxford Analytica Daily Brief. In this role, Nick started developing his copywriting skills. He continued this in his next role as editor of Doctor Online Ltd in Poole, where he also honed his communication skills by improving company press relations in national outlets and the medical sector. He was also responsible for the relaunch of the company’s website.
Nick continued his interest in local government by working for five years for the London Borough of Hackney. Working alongside the Speaker of the Borough, he demonstrated his excellent organisation skills by delivering high-profile events such as Holocaust Memorial Day and the Borough’s 50th Anniversary celebrations of the end of World War II. He then worked for the Local Strategic Partnership (Team Hackney), helping to develop the anti-gun and gang project One Love Hackney and project-managing the Borough’s first published A-Z of Services.
Before launching Nick Lewis Communications (NLC) in 2012, Nick had five successful years working for the Magstim Company Limited, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of medical device equipment used in neuroscience research and intra-operative nerve-monitoring. As Communications Manager, Nick oversaw the overhaul of the company’s two main websites and co-project-managed the development of a new magnetic coil used in Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation. He also developed all of Magstim’s social media platforms.
Nick is now using his wealth of skills and experience to help small businesses and organisations adapt to the modern online age. He helps individuals understand the possible successful applications of social media for their businesses.
In 2013 Nick lectured on Social Media at the University of Sheffield and in 2016 and 2017 he guest lectured at the University of South Wales. He is also a Key Note Speaker at the ICPA‘s Practice Evolution events in London and Manchester.
