Nigel's background is in the printing/packaging/machinery industry. Having graduated in Engineering from Imperial College, London, he started work as a production engineer, moving into production management and then into sales & marketing before taking on a general management role for a medium sized group. This eventually led to running his own small business manufacturing machinery in a niche market.
The breadth of experience within a range of industries and with large, medium and small businesses has given Nigel a detailed understanding of all aspects of running a business. He has been intimately involved in financial management, sales & marketing, production, lean manufacturing, outsourcing, etc in both production and creative industries.
Having run his own business Nigel is experienced in starting up, growing and establishing a brand - both in the home and export markets. His production background and Manufacturing Advisory Service experience gives him first hand knowledge of maximising efficiency through applying 'lean' technology in a variety of business environments, especially with small businesses.
Nigel is a Chartered Engineer, a Member of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and a Member of the London Chamber of Commerce.
Nigel says: "Mentoring is often about being able to combine strategic thinking with detailed, practical and tactical help.
In addition to his work in industry, Nigel is active in the Charity sector as a Trustee of Vauxhall City Farm ( (Registered charity 281512). The Farm provides educational, recreational, and therapeutic services in an urban environment - helping children and disadvantaged individuals to partake in rural activities in the inner city. Nigel has been a Trustee of the Farm since 2004 and has served as company Secretary and (currently) Treasurer.
