What People are Saying About Nick
Nick recently made an inspiring virtual presentation on Executive Loneliness to Mentoring Men in Australia (@mentoringmen). Our group of 100+ matches volunteer male mentors to other men who are seeking someone to talk with and confide in about the life challenges they are facing. Nick guided us through his own personal story and shared how accepting our own vulnerability and being able to open up to others can produce a powerful and life-changing effect on our future. Of all the keynote speakers to address Mentoring Men, Nick has been the most relevant and engaging, and we look forward to working with him again in this vital area to support mental health in the workplace.
—John Ogier, Director of Learning & Enablement at Total Inter Action
Nick conducted a webinar for our company where he shared on the topic of overcoming the stigma of mental illness. During this challenging period, we launched a mental wellness campaign for our employees where we wanted everyone to not neglect their mental health. I am very glad that Nick was part of this campaign where he shared useful tips and resources. He also shared his personal experiences which made it very personable and real. Thank you again, Nick!
—Amanda Lui, Learning and Development Executive at Heinemann Asia Pacific
Nick is passionate about mental health among executives. He is sincere and authentic in all his interactions. He was a keynote speaker for our "Hear More 2020" event, and our customers were inspired by his journey and resilience. Nick’s workshop/talk illuminated the nuances of executive loneliness that many feel but don’t talk about. If you are looking to inspire your team or customers - especially during these difficult times, I would highly recommend Nick.
—Sharad Govil, Managing Director at GN Group
Authentic leadership isn’t a phrase I use often, but when I think of Nick, this phrase immediately comes to mind. Nick has shown time and time again his ability to authentically connect with people through compassion and empathy. He believes in genuine relationships and is a true “network connector”, who is very well respected and admired amongst his peers. Nick’s dedication to raising awareness by openly discussing mental health and executive loneliness has helped break down the barriers of this important topic. I have had the privilege of listening to his keynote and was immediately drawn in by his passion, vulnerability, and thought leadership.
—Michael Henry, Chief Technology Officer at Singapore Sports Hub
Nick has a great story of resilience and the courage to tell it. His message on overcoming executive loneliness is an important one for everyone to hear because the consequences are deadly serious. Nick walks his talk and shows that it is not weak, but strong, to ask for help. I was honored when Nick asked me to coach him to craft his message and delivery so that he could fulfil his mission to bring awareness and action. I highly recommend Nick as a speaker to anyone who wants to add life-saving value to their conference.
—Andrew Bryant, Founder at Self Leadership
Nick put on a really good show on behalf of EGN last night. He gave a super emotional talk on his personal journey in dealing with executive stress, loneliness, depression, and related problems. Very thought-provoking. There was a really engaged audience representing the great-and-the-good of downtown Singapore, and it was nice to rub shoulders with some old friends too. Looking forward to the next event, Nick.
—Alexander Mearns, Founder at Levitise—Lifestyle, Nutrition, and Fitness Centre
Nick was one of my speakers speaking at PrimeTime Professional & Business Women Association. During the many occasions we were working together, Nick is always humble, dedicated, and committed to the cause. He inspires me and with his authenticity and resilience.
—Ling Chong, Regional Lead, Talent Management & Learning Development (APAC) at Panalpina
Nick is a brave and inspiring professional who brings taboo topics to light. We need more successful people like Nick, who embrace and share about depression and suicide. Being fearful to speak about it won't make these issues disappear. Discussing them openly, on the other hand, brings awareness and a sense of belonging. Continue with the great work, Nick!

We simply could not have marked World Suicide Prevention Day on 10 September better. For that, we have to thank our guest speaker Nick Jonsson, managing director of EGN Singapore. Nick gave one of the most authentic, courageous, and open presentations we have ever hosted. His topic was executive loneliness, which, if not recognized and treated, can result in substance abuse, wrecked lives, lost jobs and relationships, and, at its very extreme, suicide. As we all know, society still stigmatizes mental illness, which very often prevents people from seeking the help they need. Men especially. Thankfully, Nick did seek help. His best friend did not and died by suicide.
