The event was attended by a variety of Bolton professionals including contractors who worked on the building, the businesses charity partners, suppliers, and other businesses who helped the team whilst they were operating out of the office during its renovation.

The firm has grown year-on-year, with the dot2dot scheme consistently achieving over 20 per cent annual growth.

The upturn has resulted in a need for a larger team and more office space.

The refurbishment has given the business plenty of room for the existing team, plus additional desks to accommodate future growth.

The aim is for the building to reflect the way the organization works, with colleagues collaborating on projects in a relaxed and engaging environment.

Managing director Jackie Hyde said: “We’re very proud of our new offices and the event was a lovely way to celebrate our reopening.

“We wanted to bring back the joy of being in the office, we all missed the camaraderie and team energy when we weren’t together.

“There is a real buzz about the place, and we don’t think it’s just the new swanky coffee machine!

“We want the space to be used for collaboration opportunities with ourselves and other businesses.

“We have spoken with Jane Dixon from the Bereavement Café about using the space to host events to train HR professionals on how to support grieving staff, and also offered our boardroom to a charity that doesn’t have such a facility itself.

“We have also had conversations with freelancers and other local businesses who may potentially be using part of our offices as a filming location.

“It’s also going to be a great place to host networking events, which we did before the pandemic.”

Jackie created a networking group of business owners, which is expanding with new members, as well as mentoring and supporting other business women bringing them into the office to share experiences too.

The aim is that the Stanmore office becomes a destination where staff and visitors want to come and spend time there.

“We’re looking forward to what the future holds for the business and have lots of exciting plans, including recruiting new team members this year,” Jackie added.
