My name is Nick Fewings aka The F-Factor aka Few Peeps. We all have different masks that we put on when we interact with family, friends, business colleagues, clients and indeed anyone that we meet with. Each mask represents a different part of our personality that we feel comfortable and appropriate sharing with others. If people had to sum me up, I’d like them to say I am a fun-loving, caring, people person. So, taking each one of my persona in turn.
Or Nicholas, if I have upset my Mother!! A young-at-heart 52 year old, Father of 2, Step-father of 2 and Grandad or Papi to 2. Born in Plymouth, UK and now living in Bournemouth, UK. Since a young age, I found that I could make people laugh by doing funny things, telling amusing stories or jokes or just acting plain daft. I have a joy for life, my wife, my family, my friends and my pets, 1 dog and 2 cats. I enjoy making memories so enjoy travel, going to restaurants, concerts and shows with my wife. My passion for people, leads me to my second persona.
A few years ago, I got into photography. My wife has a passion and skill for taking landscapes, architecture, transport whereas I found I was drawn to taking candid or street photographs of people. When I explored the various websites for this genre of photography, I decided that I wanted to do something to make me stand out from the crowd. So, with the shots I take, I do a bit of post-shot processing to give them a unique style that seems to be appreciated. To date, with just over 500 photos on Flickr, I have achieved approximately 3 Million views and 4,000 people who follow me. I call myself Few Peeps which is a play on words with the beginning of my surname and Peeps be a colloquial term for people.
Recently, a colour pencil artist, based in Houston, Texas, found my photos and now I am supplying her with exclusive rights to use them to create some amazing artwork. Below is the latest creation with my original photo. You can read the interesting story of how we met via The Power Of Connectivity.
I thought up the pseudonym based on the popular talent show and the initial of my surname. I am an award-winning global facilitator and conference speaker. Previously, I have been a Change Director for a global blue-chip UK-based financial institution, co-founded one of the UK’s leading learning and development organisations and now, am Managing Director of Ngagementworks. I am a behavioural psychologist and use a colour model and unique personal profiles based on the psychology of Carl Jung, My previous role took me away from facilitating team workshops and speaking at conferences as the company grew and I became more involved in strategic issues. I established Ngagementworks to enable me to focus on what I am passionate about, helping people develop and grow.
I now work with individuals and teams, whether operational, project or leadership, throughout the UK and internationally. I’ve had the good fortune to work with various companies in Europe, North America & The Middle East. When I am not facilitating, I am speaking at conferences. or sharing my knowledge and experience. My most read blog of 2014 was entitled More Sinister & Destructive Than Bullying.
I also combine some of my photography with motivational quotes I have developed which I share with others. If my facilitation, conference speaking, motivational quotations and images make a positive impact on a person and helps them change their life for the better, then I am delighted.
All the best, Nick aka Few Peeps aka The F-Factor.
