Nicole Ferguson

Head of Staff Engagement & OD | Occupational Psychologist at Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Foundation Trust


Nicole is a Chartered Occupational Psychologist with 10 years of experience in Organisational Development (OD) in the private, public and consultancy sectors. I have led a number of OD programmes in the areas of employee engagement, assessment, learning and development, talent, leadership, change, culture and behaviours, coaching and mentoring, health and wellbeing and internal communications. I have worked with FTSE100’s to SMEs, and more recently the NHS.

In the last five years I have worked within the NHS, leading a growing department as Head of Staff Engagement and Organisational Development. In addition I also set up “Go Engage”, a consultancy service specialising in an online culture and engagement diagnostic survey and practical tools. Go Engage has been winner and shortlisted for over six awards since 2014, most recently winning a 2017 CIPD award with our Xopa culture analytics system for best digital initiative. Go Engage continues to be featured as a case study by CIPD and Engage for Success, and broadly within the NHS.

My methodologies are based upon turning evidence based organisational psychology theory into practical interventions and tools that are accessible. I am able to design interventions that deliver results, and believe in providing tools that enable employees and organisations to really understand and own OD for themselves. I apply my professional expertise as a psychologist to help bring the latest best practice in OD to the workplace.

I am a registered psychologist with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the Health Care and Professions Council (HCPC).
