Local Company No Limits Grows & Chooses Airport Business Centre

Local Company No Limits (South West) Chooses Airport Business Centre for their Offices Because of Price, Facilities & Location.

Read more

No Limits (South West) is the latest tenant to join Airport Business Centre in Estover. No Limits, also known as Plymouth Fancy Dress is a UK based Fancy Dress Company, offering the highest quality branded products at prices far lower than the high street. They believe that buying online should be quick and easy. That's why if you place an order with them before 2pm they will post it that same day using the delivery method you specify. They are able to achieve this high level of service by operating out of an 8,000 square foot warehouse filled with stock - unlike many of their competitors they hold physical stock so they don't order your product once they receive yours. Using the latest technology and reliable and robust order management processes they are able to see exactly where your order is and any given time down to the person that has picked and even down to what time it is actually been packed and despatched.

To find out more about No Limits, you can visit their website here www.plymouthfancydress.co.uk/

Be a Part of the South West's Annual Business IT Survey

The South West Business IT Survey was commissioned as a joint initiative by Stem Group, a leading IT company in the South West, and Plymouth University.  The survey is aimed at assessing the health and trends of the business IT landscape in the South West of the UK year on year.

Read more

This is the second year of the survey, it is hoped the survey will build on last year’s success and more conclusions will be drawn when comparing 2011 to 2012’s data to see how IT in business is improving in the region as well as pointing out areas for improvement. 

Surveys like this one are essential in today’s modern world to measure IT and its impact on businesses. With technology moving on quickly, some companies and organisations lag behind the times and do not realise the benefits IT can bring to a business. 

In periods of economic instability, those organisations which survive are likely to be those that identify and implement best practice. By recording how organisations in the South West are using IT, it will help them to identify gaps and issues to develop their infrastructure to better support their overall objectives. Because this is an annual questionnaire we can use longitudinal data to identify those trends which can help competitive advantage” states Dr Nigel Jackson, Associate Professor at Plymouth University Business School, Reader in Persuasion and Communication.

As an incentive, Stem Group is offering the chance to win a £100 Amazon voucher if businesses fill out the questionnaire before the 21st December 2012.

“Last year’s survey gave some real insight into IT in the South West; most organisations are looking into the latest technologies like Cloud and virtualisation to save IT budgets that have been cut. As IT becomes an increasingly integral part of our working lives, it is important to map our region against the rest of the UK.” Stephen Tyrrell, Managing Director at Stem Group comments. 

You can take part in the survey here:

www.stemgroup.co.uk/south-west-business-it-survey-2012

The questionnaire should just take 5 to 10 minutes to complete and by doing so you will be helping to identify the landscape of IT in the South West.  Please feel free to pass this link on to any other businesses within the South West.

You can find the results of the 2011 survey here:

DAVID YOUNG WON THE COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT AWARD 2012

THE man who led the team which brought the America's Cup World Series to Plymouth has been honoured in a prestigious award ceremony.

Read more

City businessman Dave Young won the Community Engagement Award in the 2012 Plymouth University Vice-Chancellor's Enterprise Awards.

He joined a talented and dedicated line-up of passionate campaigners and researchers whose work was acknowledged in the ceremony on Saturday.
 
Professor Martin Attrill, director of the university's Marine Institute, won the World-Class Researcher Award in recognition of his pioneering work on the effect of climate change on marine habitats and the impacts of marine protected areas and marine renewable energy.
 
The 24 awards were separated into six categories – Pioneering, Empowering, Spirited, Expert, Connected, and Creative. Trophies were designed for the occasion by students Sean Bunton and Christopher Grover.
 
Ian Sherriff, a member of a national panel set up by the Prime Minister to improve community support for dementia sufferers, was named Ambassador of the Year.
 
Mr Sherriff, an associate lecturer at Plymouth University, said: "I am thrilled to be honoured in this way for work which, I believe, is already having an incredible effect on the lives of so many people within our communities."
 
Mr Young, who was chairman of the group which brought the America's Cup to Plymouth in 2011, said: "A huge team effort culminated in thousands of people seeing a truly amazing spectacle, and this award is recognition for everyone who was part of that success and the legacy that continues to grow from it."
 
Film-maker Danny Cooke, who has worked with Plymouth's Olympic bronze medallist diver Tom Daley, was presented with the Outstanding Student accolade.
 
Professor Stephen Sterling, head of education for sustainable development, won the Outstanding Contribution category for work which has seen the university consistently ranked in the top five institutions in the national People and Planet Green Gown Awards.

Let's tap into Olympics spirit for city by David Young

Read the thoughts of our MD, David Young and join him to promote Plymouth.

Read more

David Young MD of The Airport Business Centre Ltd PlymouthHERE'S been a real lift in our spirits from our glorious summer of 2012 across the whole country – if you just ignore the weather for five minutes.

The Jubilee celebrations were magnificent, despite plenty of predictions of a damp squib, followed by the truly outstanding Olympics in which we built, organised, volunteered, secured and performed our socks off in so many different ways.

As a result a real sense of pride has been rekindled across the country.

I do get upset, however, by the speed at which some parts of the media turn from such brilliant coverage into the negative stories on which they generally lead.

Many, together with the general doomsayers of life, are now predicting all the euphoria will rapidly turn into post-Olympic blues.

So how can we ride this wave of positive energy into our own community for maximum collective benefit?

Well the plans for Home Park on the back of the brilliant Life Centre, and James Brent's development of Argyle/Pavilions etc, will give Plymouth sporting and event facilities of national significance.

We live in one of the most magnificent locations in the world and want more people to come and share it by promoting events like Flavour Fest, the National Fireworks Championship, the Marine City Festival or the America's Cup World Series.

We have some brilliant businesses based down here across a wide spectrum of sectors, some seeing impressive growth.

We have notable strengths in the manufacturing, marine, engineering, creative, medical and technology.

We have a private sector working very closely with the public sector at delivering economic growth against clear strategies.

We all have a part to play in this process – whether it's getting involved in the Plymouth Chamber or other community groups or to just being a vocal supporter of the city, rather than a doomsayer (those that generally expect the worst and love being proved right).

The Olympics success shows us that with dedication, belief and hard work we really can excel.

And as a city we must now emulate that journey and all play a part in supporting, believing and delivering.

So please find a way of making your contribution – get involved with the Plymouth Chamber if you are in business, as together we can achieve so much more.

At the very least let's all talk our city up and expect the best – we might get a very pleasant surprise in the process.
