Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, the Maggie O’Neill Business and Training Centre in Huyton is a popular Knowsley venue offering staff training facilities, flexible office space and virtual offices at affordable prices.
Located on a main road connecting Liverpool with Prescot, the centre recently seized on the current trend for flexible working to develop a modern co-working space within a community network environment.
Aside from the excellent facilities on offer, this unique business centre has a greater cause, everything the centre does serves a wider purpose, as it reinvests money generated into support for the local community.
When the Invest Knowsley Business Growth Team hosted a series of specialist workshops at the centre, the team recommended the Maggie O’Neill Business and Training Centre itself should take advantage of the one-to-one support available through the Business Growth Programme.
It was an opportune time to offer support, as Centre Manager Patrick Hemus was in the process of further innovating the business. Whilst spinning many plates, Patrick soon realised that fast paced change needs underpinning with robust systems and processes. Upon registering for the Business Growth Programme, a fully funded specialist process efficiency consultant was swiftly engaged to help the business establish procedures and manage processes more effectively.
