The journey was kickstarted in year 2016 with Caroline looking to shift her career. She shares, “I started this company in 2016 after being made redundant. I just thought I’ll see where the wind takes me, and if it doesn’t take off, I must get a proper job, and I’ve never looked back.” Choosing not to stick to the strict business plan, Caroline’s organic approach has led her to diverse opportunities.

When she came to Hope Street Xchange to explore one of our main venue spaces Caroline found the ideal office, too. She says “Initially I came to have a look at the event space, and I fell in love with the place. I loved the vibe“. Caroline notes, “being part of the Hope Street community is brilliant. The staff here are welcoming and friendly, and having a professional reception is a real positive.”

, “The business has gone from strength to strength. I don’t have to go out and find clients anymore, they find me.”
