Judith Blake

Leader, Leeds City Council

Having worked closely with Nicola on some very challenging issues in her former role as Editor of the Yorkshire Evening Post, I know her to be a hard-working, committed professional with a keen sense of integrity. She has consistently used her skills to fight persuasively for a fair deal for Leeds. This was certainly in evidence during the YEP’s campaign to highlight the plight of those affected by the dramatic Boxing Day floods in 2015.  Nicola is a self-motivated individual who brings a consistent ‘can do’ attitude to her work. She has a proven track record of delivering high quality results within deadline, and her positive attitude means she a pleasure to work alongside.

Tony Watson

Managing Director, Press Association

During a varied media career spanning print, online and social platforms, Nicola has exemplified all that is best about journalism.

As a reporter she was persistent in the pursuit of a story and passionate in campaigning against injustice and disadvantage on behalf of individuals and communities.  

As an editor she possessed a keen understanding of how to inspire exceptional performance from her staff while demanding  the highest standards of trust, integrity and accuracy.

 In addition to all that she’s a thoroughly likeable person.

Sally-Anne Greenfield

CEO, Leeds Community Foundation

I have worked with Nicola Furbisher on many occasions and I’ve always found her to be very engaging and pro-active.

 Nicola has very good people skills and her passion, commitment and ability to find a solution to the most difficult challenge is inspirational.

 I have no hesitation in recommending Nicola as one with integrity and enthusiasm, and an ideal partner to work alongside.

Mark Casci

Business Editor, The Yorkshire Post

Throughout my time working with Nicola she continuously proved herself an outstanding journalist and leader. 

A well-connected and informed operator, she worked tirelessly to deliver the very best for readers, often against the backdrop of challenging circumstances. 

Nicola has a natural ability as a leader, able to communicate her visions clearly and forcefully without being domineering or neglectful of her staff's opinions or circumstances. 

Her commitment to identifying and encouraging talent has literally created generations of award-winning journalists and her reputation in regional media is second to none. 

With her in the editor's chair, the readers and the staff she led, were extremely well served. 

Nigel Pickover

Emeritus Editor, Archant

Nicola has the rare gift of being able to deliver the requirements of any given project, but also to add the important 'human touch' extras which give any message true resonance and meaning.

She is diligent, hard-working, and comfortable across all media platforms, including traditional and new media. At every company she has worked for, projects have been formed in her own crucible of creativity, worked up with various teams, and delivered with aplomb.There are many examples, these are just two.

Loneliness, The Hidden Epidemic: This has been a masterpiece from start to finish - the campaign delivering real change and giving hope to those left abandoned at the dark-edged margins of our society.

Tour de France/Yorkshire:  As campaign leader her work, in print and online, in news stories, magazines and supplements, was the single most important factor in making The White Rose leg of this cycling mega-show one of Britain's best events of the year. 

In all her work she has the power to engage with people in an empathetic way. Her sincerity and integrity is total.

I have no hesitation in recommending her skills as incredibly valuable to any organisation

Skills and experience can get you a long way in your chosen profession, but the truly exceptional people make their mark through the way they relate to others - their personal values.

Since first meeting Nicola several years ago, I’ve come to know a person full of kindness whose integrity, commitment and passion for ‘connecting’ with people sets her apart.

Writing for a diverse community, in a multi-faceted world where principles can easily be compromised, Nicola is a unifying and compassionate voice.
