Samuel Murray

Leadership and OD Consultant

I’m a consultant within the talent consulting team here at NSCG working within leadership and organisation development and design.

What experience and expertise do you bring to your role?

I was previously a professional athlete with GB Rowing team from 2012 – 2017. I gained sponsorship as an Investec Bank Ambassador, where I worked with OD consultants and had exposure to the world of L&D and coaching. After completing an MSc in Psychology and Coaching, I spent three years at the leadership and management consultancy Lane4. Working with organisations individuals/teams in leadership, change and culture. My most recent role was as a leadership coach at Multiverse. It was fascinating to experience working within a hyper-growth organisation. During my role I had the pleasure of coaching clients within Starling Bank, Nutmeg and Just Eat; as well as shaping internal coach development and learning.

How are you helping people to achieve their full potential

Through 1:1 coaching my fundamental aim is to raise awareness of an individual’s impact or behaviours, then to simplify the arena in which they can implement change.

What are your thoughts on the future of your sector?

Given the recent challenges we have all experienced over the past 24 months, I believe for organisations to maintain their competitive edge – with respect to both retention and market competitors. Organisations are pressed more than ever remain relevant within their sector, by leading with agility and equipping their employees with the relevant skills to navigate further change and disruption. This approach, harnessed within an inclusive culture can empower employees to surface new approaches and continually drive innovation.

What do you enjoy outside of work? Any hobbies?

Most sports – not much of a football supporter…yet! Cycling, cricket, rugby, any outdoor activities. Also love catching up with friends and family, particularly for a Sunday lunch.

How do you prefer to start your day?

Exercise! Good food and coffee.

What’s the best advice you were ever given?

To remain hungry for all types/forms of feedback.
