Here are some reviews from my clients who have worked with me. I am so deeply grateful to have the pleasure and trust!

What a great honor having the opportunity to work with Nick Roud over 3 days as part of our Intelligent Leadership (IL) Executive Coaching Certification Program! We are especially excited to welcome Nick into our IL family as our 1st certified executive coach from New Zealand! We are fortunate to have such a talented person and coach bringing the IL philosophy, process and tools to his clients in New Zealand and we are looking forward to the great results Nick will bring to his clients! I highly recommend Nick to any organization and executive client who wants to improve...there is no doubt his intellect, insights, and skills as a coach will ignite growth and quantum improvement! - John Mattone, USA, Best Selling Author #1 Authority & The World’s Top Executive Coach & Philanthropist

I had a few sessions with Nick and got some fantastic advice from him which will benefit me lifelong. He taught me to aim high and be ambitious about my career goal, being self-aware of who I am, and aware of what’s going on around me. Be myself, be bold and be successful. Thanks again Nick, I wouldn’t be this clear in the direction of my career path without you - C.Z - Manager, Auckland

Nick helped me when I needed a fresh set of eyes on a situation I was going through. He provided the right balance of industry experience with a genuine interest in my career to land on some sustainable fixes. His sessions challenge you at a pace you are comfortable with, and I appreciated his perseverance to truly understand my situation and provide frank but independent advice. - M.G. Commercial Manager, Auckland

I've been working with Nick for over six year-end have enjoyed our varied conversations over this time. Navigating from practice to industry as a new CA, making the most of the Kiwi OE in the UK and then moving back to NZ. Our conversations are always focused and having an external sounding board on workplace strategies has helped me make the most of my career so far. - M.H. Associate New Zealand

I have worked with Nick for a number of years, as a General Manager I have several different hats to wear. Nick has a great ability to always challenge thinking which is a strong asset to have in a coach.  Nick is always well read and understands your market as well as the challenges you may face on a daily basis.  This enables him to articulate clear ideas that help you build strategies to support your thinking. I trust in Nick's views and I would recommend his services.

- S.S. General Manager, Auckland

I was getting my CV together and my wife recommended Nick Roud to run it past to make sure it was up to date. Sadly it was very much out of date, nick freshened it up making it more current and highlighting my skill set for future employers, he added colour and really made it pop. I can not say enough for the invaluable help he has given and the great fed back my new CV has generated from potential employers - S.R Senior Engineer, Wellington

I'm in a state of flux and falling into a pattern of behaviour that probably requires a counsellor versus a coach however Nick's coaching style was delivered with such professionalism, pragmatism and a huge dose of reality. Nick's coaching approach focuses on steering you in the right direction not necessarily giving you the answers. Nick empowers you to muster the courage and burning desire to figure it out for yourself.  It's no shampoo ad in as much as it won't happen overnight but with support and having someone like Nick believe in you makes you take action. J.H Manager, Auckland

Good morning Nick, I wanted to say a big thank you for the session last night! I have thoroughly enjoyed it and you have inspired me to bring my whole self to my CV. It was probably just the kick up the b*** that I needed. L.H Product Manager

Working in a creative industry, I wanted my CV to stand out, and really represent who I am and what I do. Nick helped me achieve that. He also helped me highlight my skills and achievements in an interesting and creative way. Nick coached me through the whole process and made it super easy. After securing a new job, I wasn't surprised when the GM told me it was the best CV she had ever seen! Thanks Nick! - C.A Marketing / Design Manager

Nick has placed me in two roles over the years, and I think that is because he understands how people work and that he truly matches the right person to the right job. Therefore, I am happy to see him go into coaching, so that he can help more people.- M.F Commercial Manager Auckland 

Realising the need to fast track my career, I found Nick Roud was able to provide key direction in formulating a positive strategy for my Sales Career. Firstly a major improvement on C.V content, crucial to gaining key interviews. Nicks extensive knowledge of interview preparation, gave me the edge I needed to secure my chosen Sales role. I have no hesitation in referring Roud Careers as the point of difference in gaining success through his services. - G.P. Sales Manager Auckland

I really appreciated todays meeting. Your guidance helped me to put the conversation into a whole different stratosphere the outcome is they want to fly me to the Head office for final interview. Thanks Nick - A.S. Senior Manager Auckland

Thanks Nick, I just wanted to let you know that I have applied with the new CV and got 2 interviews. - S.R. IT Manager Auckland

I had been out of the job seeking market for a long time, and was finding it difficult to attract any attention or cut through from my current CV. When I did get interviews, I wasn't well prepared and wasn't projecting myself as positively as I would have liked.

I saw a post you put on LinkedIn about CV & interview preparation skills / services, so I thought I would get in touch to see if you could assist. 

It's turned out to be a very positive decision, one I am glad I made. Not only have you helped to sharpen up my CV & give it a fresh coat of paint, I think its starting to better represent how I want to see myself and where I am headed on my career journey.

Bynature I am not great at sharing my thoughts, but working with you I felt very comfortable in explaining where I was at, and be honest with myself about changes I needed to make. You have a very engaging approach, one that makes people feel at ease quickly, which is essential for getting great results.

Now that I am moving into a new role, I would really like to stay engaged on furthering my career development, you have been a great sounding board for me to really start to identify the things I want from my career, we have had a great session to map out what some of those things look like, what gaps there are and where to develop connections, thinking and skills going forward.

Once again, thanks for your suport so far, and I look forward to continuing to work with you to progress my career.

- A.C. Commercial Manager Auckland

“Without wonderful clients no business can survive”

I am proud as punch to have coached over 500 individuals
Nick Roud Career Coach September 2019

Nick is an excellent career coach. He understood my career background and the roles that I had done previously and what my career aspirations was. Very positive, energetic, creative and supportive but also knowing when to ask the hard questions that are required at times for reality checks and to keeping me well grounded. His experience, professionalism, insight, coaching and guidance helped build my confidence, that has not only helped me to secure a job, but also have helped me in all other facets of my life. I would highly recommend Nick for career advice, cv coaching and preparing for interview.- A.K. Finance Manager Auckland

I had been fortunate in my career, in that most of my roles had come to me; my CV was vastly out of date and not compelling in the slightest. Suddenly finding myself in the job market and knowing I would be judged on this document, I felt unable to look at myself and my skills dispassionately to highlight the key information to get myself noticed. A former colleague introduced me to Nick, and after a few hours discussion,  he came back to me with a few clarifying questions. We met up once more and an almost complete draft was presented to me. A few minor additions and I now have a document I’m proud to send to people. - V.F Marketing Director, Auckland

Event was well attended and the whole session was interactive and engaging. The speakers allowed the participants to share their views and ideas to the wider group. The style of speakers prompted the audience to get totally involved in all the conversations. We are used to preaching, this session was totally different with two way communications happening through the session. Nearly 1-1/2 hours went swiftly. Members want more and more of these events in the future” - P.S - President of New Zealand Professional Members Group

Listened to your podcast last night and as always was a great listening experience - Finance Director - New Zealand

Excellent podcast Nick. Very much on point and relevant for me - Commercial Manager - New Zealand

Thank you the valuable time you spent with me to point me in the right direction. - S.H Accountant - New Zealand

I worked with Nick during a redundancy process from a large blue chip.  I chose Nick because he is very easy to get on with, he listens and he has extensive experience in all aspects of recruitment and placement.  These skills ensured that our sessions delivered great value to me as I navigated this difficult time. I have recommended Nick as a coach to my network. - C.S - Technology Leader - New Zealand

Hi Nick, thanks for connecting, just listened to you podcast with Gerry, it was really good. Keep it up, as an avid podcast listener, its good to see some decent NZ content up there. Software Leader - New Zealand
