Looking ahead with confidence
In 2015 we predict a 5% year-on-year growth after the accelerated growth witnessed in 2014. Our current order book stands 8% ahead of the corresponding point last year, which is a very encouraging sign.
There is no doubt that continued economic recovery is maintaining services sector growth, albeit less accelerated. Increased demand for training as talent development becomes necessary because of the more buoyant employment market, will also have a positive impact on bookings, as will an increase in visitors from ‘across the pond.’
However, like any dynamic business, we can’t afford to rest on accolades or on past performance; we continue to invest in product to maintain a competitive edge and offer added value to clients. Our capital expenditure programme for 2015 includes a kitchen refurbishment at Engineers’ House, as well as meeting rooms and restaurant servery upgrades at Woodland Grange.
So 2015 is already looking bright, thanks to a great team and great customers.
We wish you all a very happy and successful year ahead and look forward to welcoming you to our venues.
