TESTIMONIALS FROM BUSINESS LEADERS

   

Martin Kidd, Park Royal Asset Manager, SEGRO

“SEGRO has around 100 customers situated on 7 Estates in the Park Royal area, all of whom I deal with on a day to day basis, and so I have an excellent understanding of their concerns surrounding their business operations. These generally revolve around traffic congestion, power, telecommunications and utilities, and so being able to work with the OPDC is proving to be a great opportunity to not only register these concerns but also galvanise some action.”

 

Geoff Vickers, Business Development Director, Lloyds Banking Group

“Lloyds Banking Group joined West London Business in 2014 and we are delighted to have become a member. The regular Events programme has a wide appeal across the industry sectors and we have been particularly delighted with the support we get from WLB in proving us with opportunities to meet businesses and other organisations in the Park Royal Business Group, the Transport Focus Group and at various seminars throughout the year. We look forward to WLB continuing to flourish and provide invaluable support to the West London business community.”

   

Carol Bagnald, Commercial Director, London, HSBC

 “We are delighted to work in partnership with West London Business. The organisation does a huge amount to support and encourage business development activity for companies working in both the SME and corporate markets, and in particular we have been impressed with the quality of events run by West London Business, which we often invite our own customers along to. We thoroughly support the work West London Business is doing, through our membership as a business and my personal commitment at board level.”

 

Chris Kane, Head of Workplace, BBC

“The BBC is going through a period of great corporate and workplace change. Being a part of the West London Business family is helping us communicate our key messages to the local business community and ensure local organisations understand our future vision of a ‘Creative London’.”

 

Steven Booth, Managing Partner, IBB Solicitors

 “IBB Solicitors has benefitted from West London Business’ established business and public sector networks as well as their marketing channels. This has supported our efforts to build our profile and brand as West London’s leading law firm and has allowed us to make a meaningful contribution to local policy consultation.”

 

Harry Scrope, Managing Director, Brompton Bike Hire

“Brompton have enjoyed WLB membership for many years. As one of West London’s principle manufacturers we are keen to represent our employees, largely local residents, whilst sharing our passion for quality engineering. Exporting 80% of the 50,000 bikes we build each year, alongside an international retail, distribution and accessories operation, we have synergies with most members. WLB is a useful forum for us in numerous ways. “

John Kaye, Chief Executive Officer, Heathrow Airport

“Heathrow is proud to have been a member of West London Business for over 10 years. As the largest single site employer in West London, and the UK’s gateway to global markets, we are grateful to WLB for connecting us to their network of businesses, helping us better deliver on our commitment to help develop skills, create jobs and encourage economic growth. The memorable WLB events held throughout the year are a fantastic opportunity for us to engage with businesses of all sizes, and we look forward to seeing our working relationship thrive for years to come in what is going to be an exciting time for the airport and for the West London business community. “
