MY BUZZ

#SBS has taken me up from the shadows into the Light! Great opportunity and much appreciated, many thanks Theo

MY BIO

So how did it all start? The Light Yard was born out of a desire to collaborate with some of Britain’s best and most talented designers of hand-crafted and bespoke lighting. That’s where the story begins. Before starting The Light Yard, I spent many years within the hospitality industry, both in London and France. Having worked at some of London’s most prestigious establishments within the City Of London and at the iconic Palace Of Westminster, I became fascinated by the way light changed the appearance of a buildings structure and texture depending on the time of day, season and weather conditions. I began to observe London at night and quickly began to understand how the importance of creating a lighting effect with a strong visual impact had an effect on the City and its inhabitants. This was the original spark behind The Light Yard and it still fascinates and inspires me today. In 2008 whilst living in France I started Adorable Eclairage, specialising in the supply of high end outdoor and architectural luminaires and following a return back to England in 2013 I created The Light Yard.

MY BUSINESS TIPS

Learn to understand every element that goes into making your business. If you have to outsource then try and get as involved as much as possible, don't be afraid to ask the experts questions. There is no such thing as a stupid question! Time manage - Work out the best and most time effective way to manage your time and tasks that works for you. Don't be afraid to ask for help. Get involved with local business networking groups. Be patient (something I'm not too good at) it takes time to lay the foundations of a successful and strong business. If you can say "I would rather work 100 hours a week for myself then 40 hours a week for someone else" then your doing the right thing!
