Nigel was appointed by Secretary Rice and Secretary Clinton as a Commissioner of the US National Commission for Unesco; has served on US delegations to the United Nations; has three times been an invited executive-in-residence at UBS Wolfsberg (Switzerland); and has co-chaired a non-partisan group advising the UK Conservative Party on technology and health policy.

In the early 2000s, he was invited to participate in Project Horizon, the US State Department multi-year scenario-based strategic planning process. He has appeared on network media in several countries, including on ABC Nightline and PBS Frontline in the US, and BBC Newsnight and Breakfast with Frost in the UK.
