    If a single word can be used to sum up the achievements of Tim Smit, that word might be 'regeneration'. To turn one derelict, neglected corner of southwest England into a successful tourist business attracting millions of visitors is a remarkable achievement; but to do it twice is simply astonishing. Yet this is precisely what Smit has done; and in the Eden Projects we can see the nature of this achievement through a blend of visionary and innovative leadership combined with a strong sense of the value of teamwork.
