Nick has been fully paperless for the last 14 years and has driven through a fully flexible/ remote working approach as part of his current role as Chief Executive at Halton Housing Trust.

He is a keen advocate of innovation, maximising the digital potential and tweets on a regular basis (@nickatkin_hht).  He has led the move away from all internal email by March 2015 and for 90% of Trust customers to be accessing services online by 2018.

He is included in the top 25 most influential people in housing. For the last two consecutive years the Trust has been the most digitally connected organisation in the Visceral Business Connected Housing Index, in which Nick was also the most influential digital leader.
