“We want to establish ourselves as a business hub.”
So says Nik Wullschleger, chairman of the Worcester Business Forum (WBF), after the executive management held their first meeting in the boardroom of the new facility on the corner of High and Trappe Street on Tuesday 18 November.
This new hub facility boasts five offices, a boardroom, a large reception area as well as a courtyard.
Wullschleger stated that the forum plans to officially move their offices on 1 December.
The hub, continued Wullschleger, will become the head office from which the Worcester Hope and Reconciliation Process, Worcester Business Improvement District and the Worcester Community Savings and Credit Co-Operative Limited, will operate from.
“We are calling on all local and emerging businesses to visit our centre so that we can assist them with their business strategies,” said Wullschleger.
The services which will be rendered include Internet and printing facilities, professional business advice and assistance on any business plans, budgeting, too name only a few.
There are currently 120 members in the forum and these members will be able to utilise these services for free.
Sheraz Rayban, deputy chairman of the WBF, expressed the importance of streamlining economic development in the region.
“Sharing a space with different organisations is a very good idea because we can share knowledge, information and plan projects together to promote growth and development across different sectors.
“This way the central business district and the town will benefit through this collective effort,” concluded Rayban.
