Meet the Modeshift Team - Nicky Batkin

Modeshift Board MembersJob title: With Modeshift it's Awards Officer. In my day job, I'm Senior School Travel Advisor at Ealing Council.

Modeshift Board Responsibility: Managing the National Sustainable Travel Awards.

How long have you been with Modeshift? I have been a board member since October 2012.

If you could only choose to promote one way to travel, what would it be and why? Definitely walking! It’s a good form of exercise and travel, it’s free, you don’t need any equipment and, because I’m quite nosey, I get to see what’s going on around me.

Tell us something we didn’t know about you? I volunteer! Not just for Modeshift but also at events, festivals and for community projects. This summer I ‘worked’ at British Summer Time in Hyde Park, London and will be at Children in Need’s CarFest South, over the Bank Holiday weekend. Earlier this year I ‘worked’ at a settlement in Cape Town, South Africa where I helped at a school and in the community. All great experiences that I would highly recommend!

What’s your biggest work achievement to date? Working single-handedly, and on a very low budget, to support schools in Bucks achieve Modeshift STARS accreditation, resulting in Bucks having the highest number of STARS accredited schools in the country. On a personal note, it came as a complete surprise to be presented with an award, at the Modeshift Convention in 2016, for my Contribution to the National School Travel Awards.

What do you do for fun? I’m a well travelled tourist and love to plan holidays with my family and friends. I enjoy short city breaks and long haul adventures.
