The kids are back at school, a million working mothers and fathers breathe a sigh of relief as they drop little Keith and Jemima off in the school yard. Then you go back into your office and realise that actually, they weren’t that much of a handful and actually, you’d rather be running around after […]
PokeMarketing, Go! So, it’s back! I can’t believe that I’m seeing the Pokemon craze once again resurface. I remember all those years ago wasting my summer holiday sat in a dark room chasing Pokemon on a 2 inch analogue screen. This is why I have to applaud Nintendo. They have managed to convince a whole […]
I blissfully sat up from a patch of grass, the Sun streamed onto my face. I closed the exciting book I had been reading and decided to go and test out the all-inclusive coffee. No, I’m not on holiday- I’m at the Hive Enterprise Centre sat in the corner of our famous (fake) grassy area […]
Networking: ‘Interacting with others to exchange information and develop professional or social contacts’. This is a word that I have heard a lot since working in an enterprise centre. At first I had no idea what was meant when people were throwing around the word ‘networking’ but after some research online and first hand, attending […]
The Enterprise Centre Virgin… I have something in common with most of our occupiers here at the Hive because like them I am completely new to the Enterprise Centre concept.

Cake is a wonderful thing. I never realised quite how naughty cake is for you until I saw my Nan making it a few years ago. 1/3 sugar, 1/3 butter, 1/3 flour- It’s a dieter’s worst nightmare… but it is wonderful! Being the third Monday of the month this Monday was dubbed ‘Blue Monday’, the […]
Just like Bees waking up from hibernation after a long winters’ sleep, our members are slowly returning to the Hive with belly’s full of pollen and ready to make some sweet honey. Others never seemed to have left. (I suspect some even ate Christmas dinner at their hot-desks!) The Hive is once again buzzing following […]
My father turned to me yesterday with a mouth full of bacon, stuffed inside a chicken, stuffed inside a turkey, stuffed inside another undisclosed animal and said: “I can’t wait to go back to work!” I have to say, I shared his sentiment. The Christmas break is always highly anticipated and much needed, but there’s […]
Christmas is approaching and the excitement from the team here at The Hive is building! We have decorated our tree with sparkling gold and black decorations and Christmas attire is sneaking its way into the office. The Business Centre will continue to be open 24/7 throughout the Christmas Period as we know that business success […]
I work here so you may think I am biased but since joining the team, almost from the very beginning, I have seen a shell of a building grow into a vibrant and happy place to be. We are either very lucky or the atmosphere here draws very nice people to want to work here. […]
