Nigel Rust has been a trustee of the Farm since 2004 and has held the posts of Company Secretary and Vice Chairman as well as currently being Treasurer. He also sits on the Fundraising sub-committee.
In 2011 we won the Lambeth Business of the Year Award - against very strong competition from both large and small businesses in the London Borough of Lambeth - illustrating how well thought of we are in the community.
Nigel says: "The Farm does great work in the community and has a very strong Board of Trustees working hard to support the charity's staff and guide the organisation's strategic direction.
...
Nigel Rust, one of three specialist advisers working on the project, ran two group workshops on 'finding, selecting and getting the most from manufacturers' as well as taking on a number of clients on a one-to-one basis. Ten designer-makers, all with studios at Cockpit Arts in either Holborn or Deptford, were selected to work with him, including: interior product designers, ceramicists, jewellers, a fashion designer, high-end wallpaper designers and giftware makers.
The clients each had their own specific needs that were identified at the start - some wanted to reduce the cost of outsourced manufacturing, some wanted to increase productivity in their studio, some were looking to rationalise or expand their product range, some simply wanted to improve their management skills and systems, some needed help with research into alternative manufacturers and some wanted a combination of these areas.
Over the course of about five months Nigel worked closely with each client helping them to make immediate practical improvements and developing on-going action plans. All the designers involved were able to make big strides forward in their business development.
Nigel observed: "All the clients were enormously enthusiastic and able to move forward at a surprising pace."
...
"Nigel's talk provided a lot of useful tips on how to go about manufacturing.

He has run several series of business workshops tailored specifically to fashion designers under the banners of 'Be Business Ready', 'Business for Creative People' and 'The Business of Fashion'.
