About Novellus Solutions

We are a small team with world-class expertise in Human Factors and Safety Management Systems. We regularly facilitate learning events with the view to promote innovation across safety-critical industries. We do this through a series of short presentations followed by active listening, intensive discussions and even disagreements. Learning and improvement inevitably follow.

Nippin Anand

Founder and CEO

As a widely travelled brown skinned person brought up in India and educated in the West, I’ve often found my values and beliefs at odds with the society I happened to be in. At first, I was protective, even combative about my values till slowly these differences begun to embrace me.

I believe in embracing differences. Today, our society is polarised about everything from politics to climate change. Views and perspectives that differ from ours make us anxious and uncomfortable. We avoid disagreements and differences. In my world, unpacking and understanding these differences can powerfully set us on a path towards learning and growth.

What we believe in is often shaped by our past experiences and memories. During my career at sea, I experienced a near collision which was traumatic as a start but later became a turning point in my life. A decade later when I took up a PhD in Social Sciences it became obvious to me through this journey how the same experience can be narrated in so many different ways. Since then, I have taken up a passion for creating human stories. I find storytelling as a powerful way to promote learning and influence change.

Based in the North East of Scotland, I travel extensively (of course not at the moment) and set up learning events across the world. My work is recognised both in the scientific community and across safety critical industries – maritime, oil and gas, aviation, retail, health, insurance and renewable sector. My interests include storytelling, cultural anthropology, organisational learning, safety management and accident investigations.

There is a beautiful expression in anthropology – ‘making the familiar strange and the strange familiar’. I find it very helpful in learning more about myself each day.

Speaking

  • The United Nations
  • Public Administrations
  • Accident Investigation Agencies
  • Oil Majors
  • Energy and Shipping Companies

  • Insurance and Health Sector

What's in the logo?

The picture is of Janus, an ancient god in the Roman mythology. Janus represents transition, time, duality, passages and ending. Janus is often depicted as having two faces - looking ahead and behind. For us this means learning from the past as much as embracing what lies ahead.
