Some client feedback
"I recently took on a new challenge of launching my very own Mother & Baby products. I was recommended Nick by my team of product designers to help me navigate this new world! Nick took me through two days of training on all matters relating to manufacturing, logistics, pricing, sales and marketing – including how to pitch to retailers. A fantastic introduction for someone new to the industry, with practical tips and warnings of pitfalls."
