Spotlight on Nigel Spencer

At PSFI we work with an incredible community of highly talented, handpicked practitioners and academics. We connect clients with this carefully curated community of associates to get clients the right advice when they need it.

Nigel is one of our associates, specialising in leadership development within the professional service sector. This includes helping firms to innovative in their talent strategies and create new methods to help professionals to ‘learn in the flow of work’. As a qualified Executive Coach, a major focus for Nigel is associate and partner development and assessment, often embedding ‘little and often’ coaching and mentoring approaches into programmes to sustain behavioural change.

At PSFI we love research and pride ourselves on being exceptionally well thought through. We offer evidence-based thinking to help clients access, navigate, understand and apply the latest academic research to help their business grow.

We are thrilled to have Nigel as part of the team. He is Professor of Education Innovation and Professional Practice in the Law School of Queen Mary University of London and also an Associate Fellow at Saïd Business School, University of Oxford.  At Oxford Nigel contributes to the Saïd Business School’s MBA and executive development programmes. He has also co-created a number of innovative programmes which embedded workplace experience to accelerate confidence and capability, such as the Queen Mary University of London Law School’s ‘Law in Practice’ programme. In addition, Nigel created Saïd Business School’s award-winning practitioner research series with Meridian West on how the strategic use of learning can create competitive advantage in professional services.

His research focuses on a broad range of areas related to innovation in leadership development in professional services; future models of education and lifelong learning including the evolving professional career paths and future skill sets of lawyers; the impact of embedding coaching in leadership development programmes; and the uses of technology and ‘nudge’ learning methodologies to create behavioural change.

Before his roles at Queen Mary and Saïd, Nigel worked in professional services firms for 20 years, initially in a client-facing advisory role at PwC for 7 years. Following that, he held senior talent development roles at two global law firms.

He is also passionate about broadening access to the legal sector and enhancing inclusion and has for many years, as part of many boards, worked on projects with the BLD Foundation for aspiring BAME lawyers, and the 30% Club to name just two, and Nigel has spoken at many conferences in the UK and US on broadening access to the professions.
