Nigel has 30 years’ experience working in business. After 5 years in the Army he worked as a Retail Director in Allied Breweries and helped develop several well-known brands including Pitcher & Piano Bars. Nigel identified a niche market in analysing and reducing costs for such organisations. Hence the idea of setting up the Cost Reduction Company in 2010, based in Henley on Thames where he has lived and worked for 25 years.
He targets businesses that want to combine cost savings with long term carbon reduction. As well as reducing costs, Nigel embraces opportunities to help clients to use less stuff, an aspiration widely discussed in society but rarely achieved in earnest without outside help.
Nigel’s book, Using Less Stuff, will be invaluable to any organisations interested in knowing how to motivate staff to be environmentally friendly and to promote personal responsibility amongst staff.
