Samuel Murray

Leadership and OA Consultant

I’m a consultant within the talent consulting team here at NSCG working within Leadership and Organisation Advisory.

What experience and expertise do you bring to your role?

I was previously a professional athlete with GB Rowing team from 2012 – 2017, gaining sponsorship as an Investec Bank Ambassador, where I worked alongside 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 to delivery global leadership, change and culture engagements.

Most recently, I worked as a Leadership Coach with Multiverse and had the pleasure of delivering leadership programmes as well as individual performance coaching across a number of retail, financial services and technology clients. I’m passionate about all things people performance both within a business and sporting context; my aim is to bring clarity to each of my clients, enabling them to deliver on their ambitions.

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.
