I would like to recommend the fantastic service you provide at the Business Hive. I would just like to say a massive thank you for the use of the meeting room. Emma had come in early to accommodate the early start, that was very much appreciated. She also helped out in getting the room prepared and replenished with coffee etc when required. I'd also like to thank Carrie who was there for much needed tech support! If any other organisations need a meeting room or require any of their business services I would strongly recommend using you, as I will definitely be using your services again soon.

As a new member of the Business Hive, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. In addition to the obvious benefits - access to hot desking, the business lounge, business hive shield and meeting rooms, plus much more… Well, my expectations were really blown out of the water. The Business Hive team couldn’t have been more supportive of my business giving guidance and ideas on how I can raise the profile of the business. The proof really was in the pudding though, and recently I held a HR Forum which was the first event I have held at the Hive, and I honestly couldn’t have wished or hoped for any more help or support. Emma and Carrie on the day were outstanding, arriving much earlier than they should to make sure that they were on hand should I need anything, setting up the room exactly as I needed and meeting and greeting the guests as they arrived. Sam and Jo helped in promoting the event through e shots and spreading the word through local media. Yes, the big things do make a difference but it is often the little things like this that leave a lasting impression. For anyone – business large or small who may be considering joining the Business Hive then you should go for it. The facilities, support and access to a huge network is invaluable. Everything made possible because of Sam and her dream team.

I’d just like to say congratulations and a big thank you to you all for pulling of another fantastic Business Hive Live yesterday and for your help during the day. I know only too well how much hard work and effort exhibition planning takes and it’s even more impressive since you were unable to set up the day before! All the stands looked so professional and the keynote speakers were brilliant and gave me great ideas. I also noticed it was significantly busier visitor-wise. I had constant visitors, people registering for our email updates and taking information plus a new enquiry for employment law, which will hopefully result in us meeting up with the business in the near future. A big well done and here’s to 2017!

Since joining the Business Hive last year, I have been extremely impressed by both the professionalism and friendliness of all the staff, coupled with the excellent facilities, where phone calls can be made, meetings can be booked and computer work carried out remotely thanks to the quality of the Wi Fi that is available throughout the business. The Business Hive is always clean, has really good facilities for refreshments and allows the opportunity to meet with other business colleagues for advice or support. It has made managing my diary a lot easier as I am now in closer proximity to many of my clients and I must thank you for the opportunity to help build my business from a great location with a superb team working to maintain the high standards of customer service that you set yourselves. Well done and many thanks!!

"I set up as a freelance copywriter in 2013, my first time being self-employed, and the Business Hive has always been a big help. The team are very supportive, giving advice on different areas of my business such as deciding rates and the direction of my services, and will happily recommend the services of other businesses to me. They are very generous when passing my name and services on to other businesses too. Following connections through the Hive, I have been working with a leading, award-winning local business on an on-going monthly project which I thoroughly enjoy. I think the events, particularly the workshops and Inspiring Women networking events, are fantastic, and the Hot Desking and Meeting Lounge areas are extremely handy for people like me who work from home but occasionally need space to meet people and work in a different environment."
