His passion for mental health awareness through his very lived life experiences paved the way for Nick to author his first #1 international bestselling book, published in April 2021—"Executive Loneliness: The 5 Pathways to Overcoming Isolation, Stress, Anxiety and Depression in the Modern Business World".

In adjunct to his book, Nick has also created a moreeasily accessible and less formal online community, where executives and business leaders can connect, learn about and reduce the risk of burnout and isolation, with Leaders-Anonymous.com

Nick has been featured in more than 20 newspapers and magazines including a 4-page feature in the Business Times and a full page in the Straits Times, as well as on TV including Channel News Asia (CNA), and is passionate about bringing the discussion to the forefront.

He has also been entrusted to serve as the Vice-Chairman of the Nordic Chamber of Commerce in Ho Chi Minh City and the Vice Chairman of the Direct Selling Committee Vietnam.

Nick has worked across Asia, Australia and Europe representing major international firms, and is active in charitable and fundraising organizations to give back and support his local community, along with volunteering and fundraiising for the Samaritans (SOS) - a suicide prevention hotline in Singapore.

He is also engaged in doing community service for a support group for senior executives where he is assisting people who are suffering from executive loneliness.

MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES ARE RISING DRAMATICALLY

 

The problem is particularly acute among business leaders, who've been under intense pressure.

Many are now at or beyond breaking point.

These problems are not new, though.

Executive depression, anxiety and isolation - and the substance abuse, family breakdowns, poor physical health, self-harm and suicide that can all too frequently result - were a major issue long before most of us had even heard the word "coronavirus".

I know this for a fact because three years ago, I myself went through a severe breakdown. At the time, I was performing very well in my career and had recently been placed in Singapore by my company.

Over the previous decade, however, I'd been unexpectedly laid off from senior roles working in Indonesia and Vietnam.

I couldn't shake the paranoia that no matter how good my performance was, I could be retrenched at any moment. I lived on edge - and drinking took the edge off.

When I first moved to Singapore, I was all alone in a foreign country, so I sought solace in alcohol and the superficial social circle of my local bar. I stopped exercising and gained 20kg within a few months of arriving in this country.

It wasn't the wonderful food here that did it - no, it was the booze. Drinking heavily at the end of most days was, to my mind, a reward and a form of therapy, but in fact it only left me feeling more imbalanced, lonely and disconnected.

Psychosomatic disorders and my unhealthy lifestyle began to affect me physically.

I felt I couldn't get any more down and even made a will in preparation for my death, which I thought could come at any time, despite being only 43 years of age.

I'd hit an all-time low.

Finally, I acknowledged that I had to do something.
