Nick is a corporate branding specialist who has spent years working side-by-side with Taiwanese companies to build CORE messages as masterful as their service and manufacturing capabilities.
WHAT IS THE CORE VALUE YOU OFFER TO CLIENTS?
I can quickly understand any market or industry in order to have deep meaningful consultations with clients. I have spent most of my academic and professional career studying a diverse range of disciplines, giving me the ability to rapidly grasp the concerns and problems clients face in a variety of industries. Because I speak their language at their level, clients come to trust me very quickly.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS CAREER/BUSINESS PATH?
I have seen the manufacturing capabilities of Taiwan from the ground up. Throughout multiple industries and disciplines, I have seen one consistent fundamental problem: how to communicate “value”. With Presentality I aim to create a communication system that allows any globally-ambitious company, organization, or leader display their true “value” anytime, anywhere, to anyone.
WHO HAS INSPIRED YOU?
One of the most influential figures in my life was my university history professor. I began as a simple computer science major focused on building a lucrative programming career. However, after taking one history course I was hooked. My professor was able to take dry and convoluted historical data and weave stories of political subterfuge, heroic downfalls, and narratives of epic proportion.
From him I learned that having all the right data is useful, but framing that data into the right story can make a life-changing difference.
WHAT’S YOUR CHILDHOOD DREAM JOB? AND WHY AREN’T YOU DOING IT?
As a child I always dreamed of becoming a veterinarian. In a high school biology class we had to dissect a cow’s eye. Although I wasn’t exactly squeamish about the black goo oozing out of the eye during dissection, I quickly realized I had no interest or joy in performing this kind of work daily.
I decided to pursue another path, where I still have to dissect things, e.g. client’s ideas, but with less goo.
