Oliver Woodman-Smith
They're my school  •  Founder, I Am Made Ltd.
I met Tim while we were both studying for an MBA at the University of Bath. Tim is a true entrepreneur having started a number of successful ... ventures including his KOJI drinks brand. With his natural entrepreneurial flair, he brings a solid blue chip FMCG/drinks industry experience with him. Tim is dynamic, energized and is quick to cut to the chase on what's needed to be done, when and where. I'd say from what I know, one of his strongest strengths is connecting (the right) people. Tim would undoubtedly be a great adviser.
