Brand Experiences supports growth with appointment of Nicholas Wardle

A new Head of Employee Experience


We’re delighted to announce that Nicholas Wardle has joined Brand Experiences in the newly created role, Head of Employee Experience. Nicholas is the co-author of the ground-breaking book Monetising the Employee Experience which he wrote with our Chief Experience Officer, Mike Sharples, and has over 15 years' experience in Employee Experience (EX), both in the UK and in the Middle East. He’s also the co-founder of The Employee Experience Opportunity, which is supported by The Institute of Internal Communication.

Nicholas will head up our EX offering and will focus on supporting our clients to:

  • Build the business case for investment in EX
  • Define the ‘moments that matter’ along the Employee Journey
  • Utilise EX tools to create effective experiences
  • Increase motivation and productivity through our mojo platform
  • Devise compelling Internal Communications strategies and tactics
  • Create effective Internal Communications channels
  • Achieve higher levels of Employee Engagement

Mike Sharples says: “I have worked with Nicholas for a number of years now, first as a client and then as a collaborator on the book, the EXO and the toolkit; and I am very excited about what this appointment means for our business and for our clients. The way we work has changed forever and the knowledge and experience that Nicholas brings will allow us to help even more organisations take advantage of the opportunity this presents. Nicholas will focus upon enabling our clients to understand the ROI of EX, and how to best utilise EX tools to create great experiences. He will also be able to offer our clients advice on best-in-practice Internal Communications and Employee Engagement strategies, tools, channels and tactics.

“We’ve seen huge interest in mojo, our employee motivation and productivity platform, so it’s perfect timing that Nicholas has joined.”

Nicholas added: “I am a great believer that the key to future organisational success lies in how we treat our employees, so the opportunity to help not just one but many organisations achieve this was too good to turn down.”
