Laurence has spent most of his career in the media industry working in senior management roles with major publishers including Thomson Regional Newspapers, United News & Media and The Newsquest Media Group.
In 2001 Laurence left the corporate publishing world and after a 3-year spell in pharmaceuticals he set up on his own. In 2005 he created Swansea Life & Swansea Bay Business Life, two highly successful magazines now fully established in their respective markets, and since acquired by the Trinity Mirror Group.
In 2010 he stepped outside of the publishing bubble and set up a full service media agency specialising in PR, Advertising & Marketing, with a series of offices along the M4 corridor helping to develop regional campaigns for successful brands such as Las Iguanas, Andrew Scott and a wide portfolio of well-known law firms.
Outside of the media, Laurence travels extensively as a keynote speaker, talking about his experiences as a service and people expert. His ability to inspire audiences has resulted in him working with a number of international brands, including P&G, Kellogg’s, Dunelm and Armstrong. He has also penned a book entitled ‘Live Your Life’, which has become an essential guide to personal and business success for many.
In his spare time, he relaxes with his family, is an avid Chelsea fan, works out at the gym and enjoys walks on the Gower beaches with his beautiful Labrador Frankie (named after Frank Lampard of course!).
A driven people person, with a passion for words and an 'anything is possible' mentality who thrives on new challenges and creativity.
Nigel has a long and successful work history within the marketing industry, and apart from his role at M4 Media, his defining position was as International Marketing Manager for a large US corporation based in the UK. Throughout his career, Nigel has been instrumental in the development of several small to medium sized enterprises with his experience in IT and market research proving invaluable to his role as Director.
He brings his experience to M4 Media as a Consultant, and his knowledge of market research, analysis, operations management and the environmental and technical aspects of products has formed a valuable part of our service. Being involved in the growth of a young and creative company is what keeps Nigel passionate about his role.
Outside of the office, Nigel has a small holding which he lovingly maintains during his spare time. Nigel and his wife have also set themselves an aim of walking around Wales, including the border. When he isn’t enjoying the great outdoors, Nigel spends time with his many grandchildren and at sea – he even owns his own kayak!
A self-professed 'boring old fart' with a passion for strategy, market research, marketing planning and departmental management.
George is a highly experienced, award-winning Creative Director with advertising agency credentials ranging from Saatchi & Saatchi to DMB&B and Arc International.

Away from the business George is keen on keeping fit (as he also loves wine and cooking). He is also a qualified private pilot and flies from Cardiff Airport when the weather allows!
