Forging People is a Speaking Coaching company, founded in 2019 by Nick Elston – leading Inspirational Speaker on the Lived Experience of Mental Health – working with individuals & groups, worldwide.

Nick is a truly Professional Speaker in every sense – sharing his message globally to stages, events, boardrooms, businesses, schools, universities, prisons & organisations – to tens of thousands of people every year – to massive critical acclaim & ‘5 Star’ reviews.

‘Forging People’ came from a line in his Keynote Talk ‘Talking Anxiety’ – in life, in business – we can either allow our adversities, our challenges to define us negatively for the rest of our days OR we can choose for it to forge something better. Something beautiful. Something powerful. Something that didn’t exist without you going through your ‘stuff’ in the first place.

Nick harnessed the power of Speaking to form a crucial part of his recovery from Mental Illness & Mental Ill-Health – realising the ability to deliver a message – whether it be to one person or ten thousand people – with clarity, emotion & power – has an ultimate effect on your success – by your own definition.

Described as a ‘BIG man, BIG heart, BIG story, BRUTAL honesty!’, ‘Utterly engaging!’ & ‘A Speaking Masterclass!’ – Nick is now here to help YOU & YOUR organisation!

Not only do you get a rare ‘ego-free’ & authentic insight to Speaking – but as Nick has overcome crippling Anxiety to get to where he is today – so is fully armed with all of the tools to help you STEP UP!

Regularly featured in the global media & BBC – clients including the NHS, American Express, Deutsche Bank, Allianz, Government Organisations, Lloyds Banking Group, BT Group & many, many more – spoken at Stage & Stadium Events such as Accountex, The Welsh Business Shows, Now What Live, Business Showcase, SITS Conference & ACX Summit North – Nick can truly empower you to ‘Go Pro’ in every sense!
