wantspacegotspace.co.uk buisness centres london - Customer praise scoops award for North London business centre and BizspaceThe Millennium Business Centre, Staples Corner, North London, has been named the best managed workspace of the year at a national awards ceremony.

Thirty-three customers took the time to nominate the centre on Humber Road, run by Bizspace, the UK’s largest national provider of flexible business space.

It is the third time that a Bizspace premises has won the category at the Business Centre Association (BCA) annual awards ceremony.

Centre manager Valerie Prince was highly praised by customers, who said her friendly attitude and professional manner had made a huge difference during her 18 months in post.

“From day one she lifted the mood of the place with her friendly, bubbly manner.  The confidence she shows in her role and the consideration she gives to tenant issues is a breath of fresh air,” commented Lorraine McNicholas of Outform Ltd, a customer of the centre for 10 years.

Sole trader Michael Bhim added: “I have never had to wait for a response to questions or queries and she has always gone beyond her duty to keep me up to date on events or changes.  Valerie gives me the confidence to conduct my business affairs with complete peace of mind.”

During her time as manager Valerie has implemented a system to prevent non-tenants using the car park, created a break-out room for customers, set up internal networking events and scheduled ongoing improvements to the centre.

Simon House of Leach Electrics summed up: “I have been offered different premises to run my business from at a slightly lower rate than I am paying, but because I trust all the staff where I am and I know them to be honest, hardworking, caring and friendly, I have neither reason nor compulsion to go anywhere else.”

The BCA Awards, held at the Park Lane Hotel, Mayfair, are a highpoint of the industry calendar, recognising the most innovative and dynamic operators, brokers and suppliers to the flexible space sector. Nominations are verified and then independently evaluated by industry experts.

Emma Long, Bizspace’s sales and marketing director, said: “This award is testament to the dedication and enthusiasm of our centre manager, Valerie, who runs the centre virtually single-handedly, with the support of our regional team.

“Valerie works tirelessly to understand the requirements of all customers at Millennium Staples Corner, ensuring that they are in the most appropriate space to help their businesses grow and flourish. Congratulations to Valerie and also the South Regional Team: Sales Manager Ian Gaunt, Operations Manager Matthew Barrell and Property Manager Will Sharp.”
