Meet Nigel Bench and Sophia James – Internet Power Partners
Hi I’m Sophia
I began my business career 30 years ago, as a solicitor and in those days professional rules did not allow any advertising at all! Marketing was all about building relationships, personally.
10 years on, I moved into management, with an MBA. I’ve worked with a top city law firm, a bank and smaller firms too – in roles from quality and risk, to client care and marketing.
I also started and ran my own business, in the fitness industry. So I know just how crucial marketing is!
As ever, today building great relationships with your customers and contacts, differentiation and delivering a quality service are the keys to business success.
So I will help you use online tools and compelling copy to develop deep, valuable, long term relationships based on trust and integrity – your website, social media and email marketing all provide opportunities to connect and influence.

Well that’s the all important business expertise – now for the inside track!
My name, Sophia, means wisdom in Greek. (I use the Russian pronunciation, Sophia, not Sophea – think fire not fear!)
I grew up in the beautiful and ancient New Forest.
My passion is horses. I love eventing and qualified my first horse for Badminton Horse Trials. Yes, a while ago – these days I ride for fun. My horse is called Stowaway, he’s 20 years old now, but still a bit cheeky. That’s us in the pic.
I love all things Italian. La dolce vita…
My favourite recent holiday was riding and camping in the Wadi Rum desert in Jordan.
I’ve got a black belt in judo.
I’m fascinated by myths, energies and ancient mysteries…
Astrology? I’m a Gemini, with Libra ascendant (ah, that’s where the legal stuff is from…)
Gemini is ruled by Mercury – the planet and also the Roman god of communications and commerce.
I’m scared of snakes and heights. (I’m working on them).
My hero is Nelson Mandela (he was a lawyer too).
I want to see the Northern Lights.
How did we meet?
My name originates from the Gaelic Niall – thought to mean champion. But could also mean cloud, passionate or avid!
I’m from West London – I supported Chelsea age 4!
My passions are cooking and playing guitar. My family and friends seem to prefer my cooking so, fortunately for them I do more cooking than playing guitar. Still harbour those dreams of becoming a rock star one day…
I love all things Spanish. Chorizo and Rioja!
My favourite recent holiday was mountain biking in the Sierra Nevada mountains in Andalucia.
I’ve had a black cat called Boris.
I’m interested in all things wyrd, wonderful and green…
My sun sign? I’m a Sagittarius, with Libra ascendant.
Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter – the planet and also the Roman king of the gods, who increases wealth and power (read growth and profits!).
I’m scared of falling off Lily (my gypsy pony) and heights.
My hero is Joe Strummer.
I want to live by the sea and to visit Peru.
Online of course!
