New advisory programme launched for Future Space residents
advisory_space: expert advice to help grow your business
Future Space has launched a new programme for residents.
‘advisory_space’ will initially run to the end of July, and includes free virtual advisory sessions, delivered by experts from a range of subject areas.
Future Space teamed up with Bristol communications agency Purplefish, to deliver the pilot, covering PR & Marketing advice. Usually based at Paintworks, Bristol’s creative quarter, Purplefish offers full-service communications services including public relations, social media and marketing support, video and content, events and experiential and strategic issues consultancy.
Commenting on the programme, managing director Joanna Randall said: “It’s essential not to switch off communications efforts in a period of great uncertainty, and now is the time to be putting plans in place as businesses start reintroducing staff back to the workforce and hopefully entering a new phase of opportunity.”
Newly recruited Innovation Manager for Future Space, Aimee Skinner says: “We’re always looking at for new ways we can add value and support our resident companies as that’s the true benefit of being part of a likeminded and dynamic community.
We hope these will be the first of many sessions offered to our residents, as part of our new programme ‘advisory_space’
“We’re delighted to be piloting this scheme with our resident communications agency partner Purplefish – collaboration and support between businesses has never been more important than now.”
