Nick Osborne is an entrepreneur in the business of shifting paradigms; co-founder of Conscious Collaboration, Evolving Organisation and Learning Edge with whom he works as a Trainer, Consultant and Presenter.
With a wide range of experience over 30 years: in private, public and non-profit sectors; employed, freelance, entrepreneur, volunteer; with organisations including Shell, Learning and Skills Improvement Service and the Princes Trust; in the UK, Europe, North and South America. This experience combined with his fascination for and study of how people learn and work together provides Nick with an unusually wide and deep perspective on organisations, management and leadership.
A self-acknowledged control-freak, Nick appreciates how disruptive this can be in working with others. Recognising how the desire for control also limits hierarchies in our complex and rapidly changing world led him to seek alternatives to hierarchy. Nick has integrated his learning about more collaborative, agile and evolutionary approaches to create the entertaining Self-Organisation Beyond Hierarchy series of short animated films.
Nick’s work upgrades the way we learn, collaborate and run our organisations to enable better fit for the volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous conditions of the 21st century. He lives in Somerset with his wife & blended family and loves meditating reading and surfing waves in the ocean as well as those of social innovation. nickosborne.net
