I first joined the Business Hive back in 2014 Sam Burgess had called me at my workplace and asked if I would like to have a tour of the Business Hive…………… at that point it had not been open that long.

I turned up for my 1st visit not really knowing what to expect and I was blown away by the facility and Sam Burgess’s passion for the enterprise. I joined immediately and found my new found love of networking when I attended my first, 1st Tuesday networking event.

For about 6 months after changing jobs, I rented a small office at the Hive which enabled me to project manage the opening of a High Street Independent Recruitment Agency in Grimsby Town Centre. This was an ideal base for me and the team at the Hive really supported me while I was putting the business together. I attended many of the free seminars and workshops which helped in keeping me inspired and motivated.

I have had a break recently from the Business Hive after my job role took me out of Grimsby but I have since re-joined and it is great to be back. My work colleague and I are using the hot desk facility twice a week as we are based in Hull but are looking to grow our recruitment business in Grimsby. The Hive is as friendly as ever the team supportive as ever……….I have made some great friends through the networking events and all I can say is long may the Business Hive in Grimsby continue to inspire & support people in business or who are thinking of starting a business for the first time.
