London Business News Report #7 from Hold Everything Virtual Office


If you own a fast-growing, revenue-generating
business in London in technology, life sciences, creative or urban infrastructure sector and
are actively looking for a launch pad to grow internationally, the Mayor’s International
Business Programme (MIBP) is tailored perfectly to fit your global growth vision. Celebrating some of the fastest-growing, innovative
companies in London, 2017 was a stellar year with cohort members expanding into new markets,
creating jobs, closing deals and opening new offices overseas including Century Tech, Yoti
Ltd, McLEAR & Takumi. This exclusive programme provides a bespoke, on-the-ground mentoring
scheme to SMEs. Expert advice is delivered by leading entrepreneurs and business leaders
along with access to targeted trade missions, live leads and opportunities. Sometimes it seems there’s nothing but doom
and gloom on the UK’s High Streets. New store openings are at their lowest level
for seven years. And mid-range restaurants are closing branches left, right and centre. But there are still some retailing bright
spots. Primark
fashion chain is leaving rivals like New Look in the dust by sticking to one principle. Price is the main thing, say experts. Price
is always front and centre. Sometimes you hear that to survive retailers
must have a strong online offering, or should provide in-store theatre to keep customers
coming back. Primark does neither. Instead it’s the Lidl of clothing retail:
pile ’em high, sell ’em cheap. And it works. This week Primark reported higher UK sales
and plans for two new stores. But Kate Hardcastle, retail analyst at Insight
With Passion, says there’s more to it than that. “If you look at their Instagram they have
a following of 5.3 million. “They’re connecting the public with what’s
in store and creating a conversation. “There’s no big ad campaign, no supermodels.
They’re just getting customers into the store.” At Hold Everything we want to engage with
