About me

Over 16 years experience working for Media, FMCG and Radio brands (including Jamie Oliver, Global Radio and Bauer Media) with proven success delivering creative strategy and solutions for editorial, social and commercial campaigns. I have led international and national digital projects for clients including Honda, Omega, BlackBerry, Coca Cola, Three, O2, Bacardi, giffgaff, Dr Pepper and Westfield. An innovative professional; thrives in a fast-paced environment of change, development and embraces a challenge. With a mission to make eating out with families inclusive, delicious and accessible, Nicola founded Tiny Table (www.tinytable.co.uk) in 2017. Ready to champion change in the way we discover family-friendly restaurants and how we eat out with our kids, join Tiny Table and thousands of like-minded mums online and across social media, to discover fuss-free family food. THE TOGETHER TABLE is a brand-new initiative, founded by Tiny Table, designed to for new mums to embrace community, combat loneliness and connect with like-minded mamas over a much-needed bite and brew. Collaborating with a host of family-friendly restaurants and cafes across London and Hertfordshire to offer a welcome seat for mums and their newborn to eat (and feed), meet local new mums and muse over motherhood.
