Nigel is a Trustee and Co-Founder of NOW with Satish Kumar. He has been a trustee of the project since 2011, when he was appointed to initiate and establish NOW as an active project. His working life has ranged from supporting the project management of major computer projects in the public sector, to setting up and managing a successful management consultancy company. As a retired business executive, his focus has turned to more philanthropic activities, initially supporting Friends of the Earth’s Big Ask campaign, which resulted in the establishment of the world’s first climate change bill. Since then he has provided support to a wide range of charities, but more recently came to the conclusion that focusing his time and resources on the promotion of community wellbeing was the best thing to do when the world, and indeed humanity, seem to be approaching a period of severe turbulence.
