"Nik was a lead moderator at our biennial Network Conference for 240 global Chairs and CEOs in our Wallenberg group of companies.
His excellent moderation contributed to ensuring the closed event was a huge success. Our post-event survey concluded it was the ‘most appreciated conference since 2005’.
Nik received largely the top rating of ‘Very Good’ from participants. We appreciated especially his pre-conference commitment plus his contribution of ideas, insights and preparation for key issues and interviews. We look forward very much to working with him again."

- Mark Rose, CEO, Fauna & Flora International

- Nik co-chaired the Opening Session of SOM 2020 from his study in London. It was a hybrid of virtual and in person.
“I must mention, you were simply cool, effective and in full control. This is what an experienced broadcaster does (I keep participating in the webinars and was able to see the difference!). Please count me in, as fellow traveller in all your future endeavour.”
“…it was a pleasure to participate, the questions were deep and sharp on issues of climate, pandemic and pollution nexus. You were as fabulous as ever.”
“The content was excellent & the speakers were interesting but best of all was the format. Nik chaired it expertly - each contribution was short & punchy, he marshalled the questions well & pushed the speakers to answer.”
“It was a pleasure to participate, the questions were deep and sharp on issues of climate, pandemic and pollution nexus. You Nik Gowing were as fabulous as ever!”
“Succinct, excellent questions and topics, and straight to the important topics. Very nicely done.”

“Thank you so much for today: you pulled a truly remarkable session despite the technical issues. [The CEO] could not even remember the glitch from the beginning in the end!”
- European Business Leaders Convention, 2020
“…On stage, Nik was brilliant and knew how to ask the right questions to speakers and audience so to setup the stage for a rich discussion between speakers and audience and speakers during the panel discussion.”
“This is the second time we had Nik moderate our Forum. He did a fantastic job for our event.”
- MASIC Investment Forum
“There’s something about this intimacy.”
“The fact that Nik Gowing can basically draw something out of every single person in the room when he is facilitating a session is very very special.”
“Part of me wants to tell the world and part of me wants to not tell a soul!”
- Steve Marshall, Premier of South Australia at the Australian Leadership Retreat
“We were all very grateful both for your “interview” and the presentation of TtU, both of which energised the participants and led to their citing you or your ideas almost incessantly thereafter.
“I believe the presentation jolted them somewhat into, indeed, thinking the unthinkable and drew them out of their sometimes cosy attitude to what needs to be done or, rather, how it needs to be done.”
- UN Sustainable Development Forum
"Your contribution was outstanding and was a large part of what made it so successful. I cannot thank you enough for taking on the challenge and for turning it into such a success"
