Letter from the founder
A word from Nicholas Till.
Hello, and thanks for visiting our website!
After working within the energy industry for over 15 years, for companies such as British Gas and NPower, i decided to set up a boutique independent consultancy in my home town of Bournemouth.
I have put together a team with a collaborative 40 years experience in the industry, all with the same goal. We intend to deliver an expert service, with a distinct personal touch, to our clients.
After only 18 months in business, U4L is trusted by over 1,000 businesses across the UK. We look after 300+ businesses in the Bournemouth area alone. Within our portfolio, we manage accounts for hotel groups, restaurant chains, nursing homes, as well as independently-owned small businesses.
We’d love to hear from you.
We made the deliberate decision to locate the company in the vibrant yet relaxed surroundings of the south coast. Many of our team are from here – so it was purely a business decision based on talent needs, and quality of life. We believe Bournemouth is a hidden gem for starting a company. We are fortunate to be based at This Workspace, a modern co-working environment in the building formerly known as The Print Room.
