John Jennings and Nick Wain have joined Chris Cooper

I am delighted that both John Jennings (Associate Director) and Nick Wain (Business Elevation Associate) are now working within the Chris Cooper brand.

John Jennings

John and Chris worked together on developing and delivering an employee engagement programme for The University of Leicester International MBA Programme.  Such was the feedback and enjoyment of the experience that they decided they would love to work together. John is an expert in employee engagement, culture change, bespoke customer service skills, and resolution of major operational issues. This is derived from over 34 years of operational and executive board-level experience in both the public and private sectors for organisations, including Prudential, Egg, Experian and Totemic as well as the Curve Theatre in Leicester. He has led global teams and studied employee engagement and retention techniques across different cultures. He regularly lectures and presents on the key competitive advantages that business leaders can gain by placing an employee-centric approach at the heart of business strategy. He is also a former Branch Chairman of The Institute of Directors. John will be playing a lead role in the development and delivery of our ‘Elevation Through Engagement’ programmes.
