Although Karen Moule, Managing Director of Enterprise Marketing Solutions Ltd, moved to Aylesbury nearly 20 years ago, it has only been in more recent years that the move has paid dividends for her and her business.
Since setting up her marketing agency 10 years ago, Karen has got more involved in the local business community – a community that Karen believes is becoming more vibrant.
Karen also feels there are many opportunities for businesses in the county and those moving into the county. “It’s a great place to set up and run a business. We’re in the middle of the countryside and just one hour from London. We have improving communications links and wider broadband infrastructure, and being in our beautiful environment makes for a great work/life balance.”
So what makes Karen stay a Buckinghamshire Business First (BBF) member? “In the two years since I became a member I have become a raving fan! I have been able to access grants to help my business grow and the BBF business support team have been particularly fantastic in making the whole funding process straightforward, making it easy to access those crucial funds.”
Karen has become a great ambassador for BBF and she encourages her clients to sign up as members, recommending BBF within her marketing strategies that she creates for her clients. Why? “Because of the great networking opportunities you get through the BBF events programme, access to grant funding that can be spent on their marketing activity and the ability to promote their services on the BBF member-to-member offers page on the website or be included in the BBF e-newsletter.
“BBF also organises what I believe is the most important date in the Buckinghamshire business calendar; the Buckinghamshire Business Awards!"
