Caroline Cole: Colander

I have known Tom Taylor in many guises over the past 30 years. Firstly as a colleague in the multidisciplinary firm of Arup Associates, where he managed a group of disparate and often maverick individuals towards a common aim; then as a bright entrepreneur setting up his own Project Management firm, Buro Four, at a time when project management was an altogether new idea in the design industry and, more recently, as an inspirational speaker and teacher, running a series of exceptionally well received training modules for my organisation, Colander.

John Mitchell - Ireland

We have engaged Tom Taylor both as a trainer and as a mentor in the past. Last year we ran a two day course of workshops on Architects as Project Leaders with all senior staff, which he adapted, to our needs and circumstances. He involved all the delegates individually and collectively; he was practical and made a potentially difficult subject interesting and even fun.


Mike Nichols

I have known Tom Taylor personally for over 6 years.

He is a highly respected senior member of the UK and international project management community. Whilst fulfilling a pivotal leadership role in the company he formed, Buro Four, he has had a highly distinguished career in the Association for Project Management (APM).


David Prichard

I am David Prichard and I am a director of Metropolitan Workshop LLP, a medium sized, London based architecture and urban design practice with a range of projects in the UK and abroad. I was a partner in MacCormac Jamieson Prichard Architects (MJP) for 25 years before establishing Metropolitan Workshop with several colleagues from that practice.

We have worked with Tom for over 15 years in a number of roles. We first met over a challenging project in the last recession. His negotiating and management skills then helped steer a very complex project to successful conclusion with a contented client and buildings that won numerous design awards.
