Nick Turner

Skills Hub Communications Specialist

I'm an Australian in Cornwall, by way of Papua New Guinea, having split the better part of my career working between these two countries before moving to Penzance in March 2020. I've worked across the tertiary education, government and international development sectors and am thrilled to see how my skills can assist the Skills Hub.

I have a passion for writing, photography, reading and food and a day that combines any or all of these things certainly sounds ideal to me. 

As a new arrival I find myself completely blown away by the beauty of Cornwall, the rolling hills and farm land sitting perfectly alongside the sandy beaches and turquoise water. It's a stunning little part of the world and I feel incredibly lucky to be able to now call it home. 

My perfect day involves: a long lie in, followed by pancakes and coffee. Some time at the beach, or a walk along the South West Coast Path, followed by dinner out accompanied by my partner and a nice bottle of wine.

Business idea that I’m secretly plotting: a coffee shop by day, wine bar by night. Small, simple, cosy; all I need to do is tackle the hardest part of thinking up a catchy name for the place.
