Basepoint Tewkessbury held a Networking Hub at the centre last week which was attended by local businesses from around the area. We also welcomed guest speaker Benjamin Parry from Indy Motion. Benjamin and his colleague gave a brief talk about their film and photography business and how business can reach an entirely new audience via the medium of film. The talk went down very well with guests with lots of questions for the pair at the end.
Being part of IWG means more than just renting office space. With different packages for every need, why not try one of our lounge memberships? Think Basepoint, think office space! Which is true, but there is also so much more in what we are able to offer. Introducing our lounge memberships: which sounds like some airport offer (which in some ways it is!) but in actual fact is a fantastic option for those who need the greatest flexibility in their work life. Lounge Membership is simply a way of paying one monthly fee which gives you access to 3000 lounges worldwide, meaning wherever you are you can find a space to work. These lounges give you access to premium grade wifi, with comfy sofas and chairs giving you the freedom to work when and where you like. However there is more: what if you need a desk and a chair and some privacy? Well, we can help you out there too. There are options for adding 5, 10 or unlimited days a month in a co-working space or private office- in any centre in the world. Yes, any centre in the world!! If you travel and need the flexibility to work in various locations, or you just need the freedom to be able to drop in and work wherever you are then one of Lounge Memberships are for you.

Basepoint Tewkesbury held a networking event today in aid of the Alzheimer's Society and raised a fantastic £79.06. The event was well attended by many different businesses and gave everyone a chance to network whilst also donating to a worthy cause. Everyone enjoyed the delicious selection of homemade cupcakes on offer.
The most exciting and scary thing to deal with when running a small business is handling unexpected change beyond our control. Change means opportunity but it can also mean danger. How do you keep your head about you, as Rudyard Kipling might have said, when all about you is change? Small firms at the coalface As small business owners, we may be more vulnerable to the twists and turns of fate than big firms, but we are closer to the action. That means that we have the advantage - we can stay really close to our customers, understand what is going on for them and what they might want. We can ask them for their feedback and respond straight away. We can see what they buy and what they don't, what works and what needs work.
