Originally from Edinburgh, Nick has had a diverse career spanning business, charity campaigns, philanthropy, and television presenting. With over 20 years of experience, he has captivated audiences as a TV presenter and expert.
At the age of 30, Nick made a pivotal decision to transition from his roles at lastminute.com and American Express and pursue a career in television. He became a co-host on The Russell Grant Show on Sky One, followed by a role as a lifestyle expert on Lorraine Kelly’s Daytime show, LK TODAY, for five years.
Expanding his portfolio, Nick ventured into event planning and public relations, establishing a successful PR business. His agency has represented renowned brands such as The Perfume Shop, Nivea, lastminute.com, MTV, Comedy Central, History Channel, Virgin Limited Edition, Puma, Lipsy, The Diana Award, and BBC Children in Need. His achievements have earned him annual placements in the PR Power Book.
Nick’s expertise led to him being invited as a permanent judge on the hit TV show Project Catwalk. Today, he is sought after as a commentator and media expert, lending his insights to various platforms.
Driven by his desire to raise awareness about stroke, the condition that tragically took his adoptive mother’s life, Nick has maintained a deep passion for charity throughout his journey. His initiative, Style For Stroke, is supported by influential figures such as Laura Whitmore, Eva Longoria, Mel B, Luke Evans, and Kelly Osbourne. Each year, Nick’s fashion collection and charity gala contribute to meaningful causes.
"Nick Ede is one of the most inspiring speakers around. He brings charm, wit and wisdom everywhere he goes. He is inclusive and enthusiastic and always inspiring."
Jane Sharpe - CEO, Rays of Sunshine
"I have watched Nicks public speaking and he has an air of vulnerability that makes him so exciting to hear. You never know what will be coming next but you know it’ll be insightful and often very anecdotal from his varied career and inspiring achievements."
Harold Tillman - Chairman, Ethical Fashion Council and British Fashion Council
