Nicky Fried

Principal, Nicky Fried Consulting Inc.

Nicky Fried works with organizations and communities to translate change and strategy so that leaders, employees and the public embrace and live the change every day through their actions and behaviours. Fried’s approach is to connect people emotionally and intellectually to change, ensuring that they understand and embrace the journey toward change as well as their roles as responsible citizens. 

Fried has 25 years of experience as a communicator, trainer and change expert. She is a recognized expert in storytelling, enabling her clients to achieve better results through linking people to a common set of values and goals. Her approach ensures employees are able to make the connection between their own personal journeys and that of the organization. Through story, Fried helps employees understand complexity and desired behaviours.
