Nicola Marfleet was appointed Governor of Woodhill Prison in 2017, and embarked on a multi-pronged programme of culture change resulting in nation-high suicide rates falling to almost zero.

In this interactive evening to mark the launch of the 5th edition of Mark Greene’s Thank God it’s Monday Nicola reflects on the biblical frameworks and practices that have helped to fuel and sustain her own leadership journey towards organisational change, lessons which are applicable to a wide range of leadership contexts.

Speaker bio:

Nicola Marfleet, Governor, HMP Woodhill

Nikki was raised as a missionary kid in the jungles of West Papua amongst the stone age Dani tribe. During her secondary school years, she went to boarding school in Papua New Guinea before later returning to the UK.

After studying visual communication at university, she switched from being a volunteer leading worship in her local prison and joined the prison service where she has now worked for nearly 18 years. She has worked in some of England’s busiest prisons – most notably HMP Swaleside on the Isle of Sheppey, and HMP Pentonville in Islington. She is currently Governor at HMP Woodhill, a high security prison leading a team of around 800 staff and agency workers.

Nikki went on to complete a Masters in Criminology and Management at the University of Cambridge. Her research into knife crime was published as a book called ‘Why carry a weapon?’ and referenced in the House of Commons.

Nikki is passionate about seeing people equipped and raised up to lead and influence in every area of society. She sits on the Council of Reference of OneLife and is a trustee of Charis Tiwala.
