In loving memory of Stephen Timothy Robinson – Who passed peacefully on 23rd December 2022

It is with deep regret that we announce the sad loss of Steve Robinson, founder and one of the original partners here at Get the Edge.

His enthusiastic approach and engaging style made every session he held, memorable and unique for the delegates he was working with.

Steve was passionate about developing people to achieve their full potential in life. His inspirational approach and enthusiasm to life and work is infectious. His ability to engage and enthuse even the most cynical of employees allowed change to take place quickly and more agreeably.

Steve passed on the 23rd December, but his memory lives on here at Get the Edge, Jon, Lisa and the team will ensure that Steve is always remembered.

Nicola has spent her career working with Managers, Leaders and Directors within organisations across the UK and Europe. Her objective – helping them be the best version of themselves that they want to be in their organisation. She has gathered a rich experience, working with clients within international businesses, local authorities, academic institutions and not for profits to help them progress their careers or organisations towards their future.

Nicola believes people have all the resources within them to be the leader they want to be, it’s just a case of harnessing those resources. So whether it’s confidence, belief, focus, or impact and influence amongst people – I experience the clients I work with moving towards what they want, often unlocking resources they didn’t even know they had.

The Get the Edge team are delighted to have Nick Horton with us working as an Associate Partner on many projects.

Nick brings an extensive retail motor industry experience that spans a period of 25 years and the ability to design and deliver bespoke programmes that get results and add impact to the bottom line.

His experience within the retail sector of the industry focused primarily on sales operations and included fulfilment of several key roles including Sales Executive, Business Manager, Sales Manager and General Sales Manager.  Within this time, he was nationally recognised for his achievements as a Business Manager and also on a more local scale for the performances achieved by his sales teams.

This experience is key when Nick facilitates Training workshops as he and the delegates are able to relate to each other on a scale that creates a clear understanding of the everyday situations that sales personnel find themselves needing to adapt to.

This essential combination of experience and on-going association with current dealership personnel enables Nick to contribute tangible value to a wide spectrum of dealership personnel, including middle and senior management.

Whilst remaining focused to the workshop objectives, Nick’s style of delivery aims to engage all delegates in a manner that promotes confidence and a desire to want to deliver an improved performance upon their return to the dealership.
