officebroker.com Blog: November Round-Up
A nip in the air, frozen windscreens and talk of Christmas trees means that December is well and truly here. Naturally, the arrival of a new month brings yet another faithful round-up from the officebroker.com Blog to recount all of November’s goings-on…
Business Centre of the Month Award… November’s gong went to MWB’s lovely centre in Knightsbridge. Cracking service, top-notch facilities and a productive relationship with the officebroker.com team earned MWB this month’s award – find out more here: Business Centre of the Month – November 2011.
2011 Broker Representative of the Year Award… We’re very proud to announce that our very own Rebecca-Jane Strawford scooped the BCA’s gong for best broker representative in 2011. Becci is a consistent performer who regularly goes the extra mile and her long list of client endorsements is testament to her high standards. The BCA judging panel described Becci as “exactly what a broker should be”, adding that she has a “unique talent for building and maintaining relationships. Her integrity and commitment to the sector is reflected by her many loyal clients.”
Well done Becci!
Movember madness… Never mind remembering fireworks and Guy Fawkes, November is all about moustaches and raising money for men’s health initiatives. This year no less than seven brave souls at officebroker.com took part in Movember 2011, which saw a stunning turnout of moustaches in various shapes, styles and levels of success.

Provider news… As ever our Blog headlines were packed with news from serviced office providers all over the UK.
Fasset’s Langstone business centre supported the Learning, Excel, Aspire Programme (LEAP) to bring business and education together and helped to promote work skills and employability in youngsters at the same time.
There was plenty of good news for Orega in November, with news of high demand for their expanded Birmingham business centre and the announcement that they have acquired a further 4,500 sq ft at their flagship Manchester location.
October’s Business Centre of the Month Award winner, Prama House, now has a brand new video of the centre which has been published online, MWB launched a new bespoke design service – Signature Office – which allows clients to create their own office space from a choice of 12 different designs, and Basepoint’s Chatham location scooped the Workspace of the Year Award at the BCA’s annual award ceremony.
We also shone the spotlight on a number of Sales Stars from across the serviced office industry. These are the people who regularly go the extra mile and do whatever it takes to work with their officebroker.com account manager to find the best possible solution for clients, and we felt it was high time we gave them a special mention.
In wider business news, we looked at the top 5 celebrity investors, from Jay-Z to Will Ferrell; scrutinised the results of a survey that revealed the ruthlessness of office workers when it comes to redundancy and pay cuts; and completed our 6-week ‘Profile’ series, which took a detailed look at a range of celebrity businesspeople and examined their rags to riches stories.
