Broadley Speaking recently celebrated 21 years of business with a party at the Bedford Hotel in Tavistock with old and recent employees, families and friends.
It was an occasion to see so many familiar faces and catch up with 21 years of events which have marked the story of this amazing business which, from Tavistock, is reaching every corner of the globe, working with some of the largest businesses in the world.
But it wasn’t always like this. Broadley Speaking started small, and gradually built solid foundations.
Patricia Bryant has been with the business since it started. She says: “There were 6 people in a room when I joined; I had my interview in a little room at the Tindle Centre. Most of our clients were small local businesses, similar to us. The business soon became successful, and it was obvious that we needed to put up systems to support our growth: new premises, more staff, and better infrastructures”
21 years later most of us are still based in our Tavistock office, but we also work remotely with teams in different continents. We are at the forefront of B2B sales and marketing practices and we employ the latest advancements of digital technology to work with some of the world’s largest companies.
Throughout these 21 years Hilary has been the constant. She started the business and she still drives it with her husband David.
Success and technological advancement have not changed a fundamental truth: Broadley Speaking is most of all a people’s business, created so that staff can have an opportunity to progress and reach their individual potential.
Our people are our most important asset; we need to attract the best talent, nurture our staff and make them feel they are in a place where they can grow and develop with the business. It is the only way to be successful.
Happy birthday Broadley Speaking. Here’s to a bright future!
