Who We Are


Nigel Reed Smith

I have been very fortunate when I say that I have really enjoyed my working life. Overall, it’s been fun; plus I’ve had the privilege of meeting and getting to know some great people.

In 2004, after 22 years in banking, I had an opportunity to move into business consultancy; I did so. Since then I have had the pleasure of working with many SMEs (‘Small & Medium-sized Enterprises’) and fellow business owners.

In recent years, our company has been contracted via a range of innovation-centric programmes linked with universities and research partners. We have connected SMEs like us with larger ‘Project Partners’ drawn from PLCs, large Corporate, Higher Education Institutions, specialist Research Centres and parts of the Public Sector.

We love making connections happen!

Away from work, I enjoy family life, cycling, tennis, architecture, AFC Bournemouth, Choral Evensong, reading (from Bill Bryson to Bill Shakespeare) music (from Puccini to Pink Floyd) and a good long walk, especially in Purbeck.
