Regus Business Centres: Global flexible workspace provider, Regus, opened their 10thbusiness centre, in Britam Towers, Upper Hill yesterday. The evening cocktail event hosted current and prospective customers and the media and celebrated 12 years of supporting businesses in the area. The new centre offers fully furnished offices, co-working spaces, meeting rooms and virtual offices to the growing number of start-ups, freelancers, entrepreneurs and SME’s in Nairobi.
Heidi Duvenage – Country Manager – East & Southern Africa, Ghana for Regus’ parent company, IWG plc – welcomed the guests with co-host, Ronal Samani, CEO of Lanor Holdings. Also present were Centre Manager, Eric Thuku and country Team Lead Operations, Kristine Gichuhi. Park Inn Radisson provided light entertainment and eats while the guests were treated to a tour of the offices, co-working spaces and meeting rooms with 360O views of the city.
The opening of this latest location was another successful joint venture with Lanor Holdings, part of the well-known AMS Group in East Africa. Since 2007, Regus has provided co-working and meeting spaces to meet the increasing demand for flexible, technologically advanced, professional work areas. Businesses, corporates and individuals use their services on a monthly membership basis for work, interviews, meetings, training, and as office space for local and international companies. Foreign entities also use the business centres to establish a local presence in the capital.
The speed at which technology has evolved means that not only are business people able to take their work around the city as they move from meeting to meeting, but they are also able to carry out these tasks and stay cost-effectively connected with their team or their management thanks to solutions that have made even telephoning seem cumbersome and old-fashioned.
Duvenage said of the expansion, “The most recent Regus locations were strategically chosen to support areas in Kenya experiencing where flexible working and co-working hubs are flourishing. We provide the support of much-needed technological infrastructure and services to businesses and we have seen our business centres boost economic growth in all the locations where we put down our footprint.”
With more centres set to open in Kenya in 2020, Regus’ business support footprint is steadily growing to include centres nationwide. Regus Business Centres.
