Nick Whitelock and BigPicture Learning

Founded by Nick Whitelock in 1999, BigPicture Learning was born from Nick Whitelock seeing the opportunity for more engaging communications with employees in large organisations. After a career that had spanned companies such as Mars Confectionary and PepsiCo, Nick whitelock had accumulated many years of innovative practices and had developed a personal approach to communications that was the foundation of the BigPicture Learning methodology.

Starting with clients such as Vodafone, Walkers Snack Foods and Hilton Hotels, BigPicture Learning rapidly developed a reputation for delivering exceptional results for clients. This reputation allowed the business to grow organically and develop a client base that would be the envy of many consultancy businesses.
