HCR Inspires at Be Inspired
25 April 2012
Almost 1,000 delegates from around the Hampshire area attended the inaugural ‘Be Inspired’ business event hosted by Destination Basingstoke. The event took place on Thursday 19th April and played host to over 80 exhibitors (including global mobility specialists HCR) in the cosmopolitan offices of Belvedere House in Basing View.
A packed range of seminars filled the day with best practice and business advice, whilst the mix of industries provided a rich basis for networking opportunities. Heading up the event was none other than Nick Hewer, entrepreneurial oracle, business mogul and adviser to Lord Alan Sugar (of BBC ‘The Apprentice’ fame). Nick opened the event to full house, eagerly awaiting his invaluable business counsel and insider gossip from The Apprentice. Nick made sure to visit the HCR stand and congratulate HCR delegates for their win as the INSPIRE Business of the Year 2011.
HCR Special Projects Manager and Green leader George Dawes lead a seminar at the event to promote ‘green’ business practices. George has been at the forefront of HCR’s Sustainable Relocation Promise, and has since helped HCR lead the charge to greener relocation and to Carbon Neutrality in 2011. George’s seminar was a great success, and HCR received laudable feedback on its dedication to green policies and changing the face of relocation. George commented: “Even the smallest changes to office daily life can make a discernable difference to the environment, and the cost savings to be made are remarkable.”
HCR’s Business Development & Marketing Director Adrian Leach also attended the event, and is partaking in the 2012 Inspire Awards launch following HCR’s outstanding win as Inspire ‘Business of the Year’ in 2011.
