I first met Nick when I worked at Thames in 1986. I was then fortunate enough to be part of
his team that went to launch UK Gold, UK Living and finally Channel 5. He was always so positive,
ready for any challenge - whether work or play - and always smiling. He was a fantastic support to
me as a "working Mum" with two very young children, facilitating time and flexibility, recognising
the importance of family even before he had his own.
We all worked very hard as his team, but played hard too....we had some amazing times and
trips across the years, Australia, a memorable flight back from Hong Kong, an earthquake in
Acapulco, fantastic trips to the States both East coast and West coast and those famous Sales
Conferences all over Europe. Whenever we travelled as a team on a plane however, Nick always turned
left as we boarded!!!
From reading so many tributes, he has had such an amazing impact on so many people and the
Media Industry. It was ironic that he was acknowledged recently with the Great and the Good of
BAFTA...Nick would have so loved that.
We were all so delighted when he met Victoria and whenever I saw him recently he was always so
proud of his wonderful family. My heart, thoughts and prayers go out to Victoria, Amber, Olivia and
Nick, we will miss your charm and smiling face.
Look after Emily.
