Since meeting Nick when we started vet school at Bristol all those years ago he has enhanced my life and opened my eyes to so much that I would otherwise never have seen. He never changed for me in all that time. Always challenging norms and full of ideas. He was an early adopter of technology and new ways of working. He was a generous friend and colleague. Nick’s legacy rightly lives on with his charitable work in Africa and his academic enterprises from eLearning to WikiVet itself. Life will never be quite the same knowing that we’ll never meet again. So many happy memories to treasure luckily.
