The BTC recently held a special event to say ‘thank you’ to all it residential and virtual office clients.

This was supported by an exhibition of over 20 businesses, who showcased their services and products to the rest of the BTC and Chells community.

The event hosted Roberto Perrone of BBC Three Counties Radio who provided businesses with an inspiring speech on the support provided by BTC and the offer of local businesses in Stevenage including the BTC. The BBC Three Counties Radio drive-time radio show was then broadcast live from the BTC, interviewing 12 small businesses on the air, sharing success stories and business insights.

Guests on the live show also included Councillor Sharon Taylor OBE and BTC Centre Manager, Pauline Philips. Pauline said:
“We wanted to bring something a bit different to the hub as a way of saying thank you to all the businesses based here. Networking and PR are crucial essentials needed to grow any business and we wanted to bring these opportunities direct to them. It was an exciting event to run and the feedback has been fantastic.”

Councillor Ralph Raynor from Stevenage Borough Council, who own the building. Ralph said:
“We are proud of the calibre of local businesses we’ve got working at the btc so the ‘Thank You’ event was a great way for us to acknowledge the work they all do. I would encourage any early stage or new business looking for advice or a new workspace to get in touch with the btc as the facilities and support on offer are second to none.”
