Virtual Office? We Put Your Fears to Rest. Watch Our New Video.
Sunday, 15 July 2018 21:59
Prospective clients often express to us their misgivings about using a ‘virtual office’ rather than rent a regular business premises. These fears are understandable, yet they are usually misplaced. In this video we will explain to you, why having a virtual office is a great business solution, especially if you are a business start up, or an overseas organisation.
There is too much to deal with in one video so we have split our discussion into 2 parts. We will be uploading part 2 shortly so if you subscribe to our YouTube channel you can be sure not to miss it. In this first episode we allay your fears that a remote office is a ‘lazy’ office. If an employee is working from his home, will they keep their mind on the job or will they be easily distracted. We explain how advances in business technology can allay these concerns and let a remote workforce work smoothly and profitably without the need for expensive business premises.
We have extensive experience in guiding clients on how best to structure a virtual office scenario and we would love to have the chance to talk it through with you and reassure you just how advantageous it can be. We are very easy to visit on Regent Street in the centre of London and we would be very happy to show you our boardroom and our other office services.
Why Using a Virtual office in London Makes Good Business Sense.
Monday, 02 July 2018 23:18
One would imagine that in this virtual world you never had clients meetings face to face. Vendors of software such as gotomeeting.com would certainly say that. But for all our virtual advances there are still times when you have to welcome a client to your place of work. That real life meeting is a good opportunity to show you and your business to its best advantage. But what if your office is a branch of Starbucks or your brother’s garage? You will not look as smart or as cool as your website or brochure.
Luckily, you have a virtual office package with us on Regent Street and as part of that package you have use of our boardroom/meeting room whenever you need it. You just book and turn up. The receptionist and secretarial will treat you with the respect accorded to a serious business client and will make sure that you and your associates have all you need for your meeting.
If you are giving a presentation then you can turn up with just your laptop because we will provide the overhead projector and the whiteboard and, of course, a fast secure connection. Your client will see you as a serious business executive and this will increase trust – the basis of any business relationship.
So, as you can see, Hold Everything is more than just a mailbox or a phone answering service it is a full service basis for everything you wish to achieve in your business life.
Worthy Recognition for London SME’s at Evening Standard Awards 2018.
Sunday, 01 July 2018 19:21
I love it when small businesses get the recognition they deserve from major media outlets. The London Evening Standard has always supported the Capital’s business community and with George Osborne at its helm it is certain to do so on a continuing basis. Our latest weekly news report features the 2018 awards and the recognition given to Asif Qasim, a hospital consultant turned app developer. Dr Qasim came up with the idea for Medshr which is a sort of social network for the medical community and allows doctors and researchers to share results and techniques across the globe.
We also concern ourselves with the continuing threat from cyber crime that affects all of us, both as businessmen and as online users. At last the police are taking cyber crime more seriously and have set up Operation Cyber Griffin to target hackers in the Square Mile. We read all the time about hackers and teams of criminals getting away with outrageous heists when people transfer money for house purchases into bogus accounts. These are not ‘victimless crimes’ and we need a police force that is intellectually equipped to combat this trend.
We hope you check out our weekly news report that we have been running for 4 months now. We try to give you snippets of business news that might have escaped your attention – the information overload is so overwhelming these days that we try to curate things you might find useful.
Do remember that we have more 30 years of experience in the London business sector and we can help and advice on everything concerning company registration and UK business regulations. We work for a wide range of clients scattered across the UK and the rest of the Globe so most problems we have dealt with at one time or another. This is what makes Hold Everything a personal servic e rather than just another business centre.

We offer the possibility to rent a boardroom/meeting room at very reasonable prices.

Small business, Big impressions: Taking advantage of a virtual office address
Monday, 31 October 2016 13:22
As a small business, making a good impression can seem like a feat in itself. There is something about a start-up enterprise or a family run company that can put you on the back foot with potential customers, finding yourself judged and scrutinized before you can even say hello.
This judgement is quite ironic as over the years I have become accustomed to hearing realms of praise from high flying business men and women who are often describing the warm customer service, acute attention to detail and second-to-none product knowledge that they have experienced working with a small business.
The problem is, small businesses still make people nervous. There are usually less reviews to read, fewer big name case studies to take in and in general more ‘unknowns’ compared to the big names in the market. This makes it very hard for a small business to make a good impression from the start, despite the often superior service they may be able to deliver.
Being able to sway an individual to take a chance on your company is all about confidence. Confidence that you have the capability and experience to compete with the big players.
Choosing a virtual office address allows you to use a highly desirable business address for your company. All of our clients benefit from using a Regent Street address, and impressing potential clients with their prestigious W1 postcode in London. They are also able to make use of a personalised London telephone number where our dedicated telephone assistant will answer the phone in the name of their business and send on calls as they need.
These small features can make the world of difference to the perception of a small business, giving customers the confidence to find out more about what they can offer, and as we’ve found are often pleasantly surprised at the quality of service they receive.
