Our absence from the 2005 Design Week Top 100 came as a bit of a surprise to me. It was then that I realised it was a case of mea culpa.
It’s a shame really, because Nucleus made terrific progress during 2004 and should have been listed at number 45 on the Top 100 league table.
Your table would also have shown the consultancy growing its annual turnover by 54 per cent, making us equal fourth in ‘fastest growers’ –
rather less than the 100 per cent we had forecast, but we’ve made up for that in 2005.
We would have been ninth in the ‘digital’ category and with fee income of £107 880 per employee we would have been in at number six in the ‘efficiency’ league.
We’ll make sure we file our entry on time next year. How can I be sure? I’ve asked someone else to do it.

Of course, none of these figures are verified by an auditor’s statement, a precondition of Top 100 entry – Ed
