Nigel has been an enormous help to me in setting up my business. He is across so many aspects of running a small business, but especially the marketing. He is very knowledgable and thoughtful in recommending strategies to build a client base and gain momentum. This includes advising on what's worth spending money on, and what isn't. And he's very personable. Highly recommended.
