Once again, thank you so much for your help Gareth."

I can't recommend Businessline enough! Gareth is so enthusiastic, helpful and supportive and has some great ideas. He has been instrumental in helping us promote and offer free workshops to other businesses and people who are thinking of starting their own business - great service for any business in the area. Don't hesitate to contact them, we are glad we did!

Sandra Hughes Learning & Development Manager – The Really Amazing

Phew! My brain is buzzing with all the information provided by Businessline, and your help is definitely making me feel so much more confident in what I'm doing - you do a fabulous job!

Joanna Stuart, Cariad Intuitive Healing and Guidance

A couple of months ago I came up with an idea to try setting up a new business in the Wrexham area. This was new territory for me to explore and can be pretty hair-raising. On meeting with Gareth at Businessline, I was put at my ease straight away. He is exceptional with customer service, is always there for me when I need his advice or guidance. He is only a phone-call or email away and keeps me up to date at all times with all networking events and other related aspects of business start up. He has already supplied me with 50 business contacts. I am now hoping to start opening for business on Sept 1st this year and a lot of this is due to Gareth. He is brilliant. This service is totally recommended to anyone in a similar position. Once you have met Gareth then you will feel you have known him for a long time! Very approachable, honest and delivering a first-class service at ALL times.

John Durham, J P Durham Associates

I visited Businessline located in Wrexham Library this morning and was delighted with my experience. I strongly advise all new and existing businesses to take advantage of the excellent information, resources and services provided FOR FREE by Businessline. The market research reports alone are worth over £500 each. You can also benefit from business information factsheets, start-up workshops, networking event and more. Makes me proud to be Welsh.

Katrina Boydon - Ziva Dog Media

I met with Gareth for just an hour initially but the amount of information and networking ideas I received was brilliant! I am so grateful to have this specialist support and will be a frequent user I'm sure.

Cat Williams - Calm and Content Workplace Training

“If you are considering setting up a business, already running a business, or studying business I wholeheartedly recommend you get in touch with Businessline. Both Gareth and Karen are fantastic. They are helpful, knowledgeable, and thoroughly committed to providing the best possible service. As a teacher they have been able to provide me with relevant, up to date business information and resources that are invaluable in supporting learning in this subject. They have also been able to assist my students with their research for coursework projects - providing information that they would otherwise be unable to access.  Thank you, Businessline!”

Rachel Allen - Ysgol Dinas Bran

“Every business or potential start-up within reach of Wrexham Library should be exploring the market research reports available to businesses. They’re invaluable. Well done Wrexham CBC for supporting the service and thank-you to Businessline for such a speedy and efficient market research solution.”

Nigel Thompson

"Gareth supported Outperform during the roll out of our open sales courses in the Wrexham area. The marketing services and local knowledge he provided have been invaluable and I would not hesitate to recommend him to any businesses looking to promote themselves. His business event in November 2013 was well attended and the investment for our stand at the event was well worth the time and cost. Gareth is a pleasure to deal with, works to deadlines and is outcome focused."

Dawn Roberts  - Outperform Training & Coaching

"I first asked Gareth for assistance as a new business start up in 2012. He has been more than willing to help on many occasions and the data he provided as a representative of Businessline has been excellent.

I would happily recommend any business whether they are new or established to get in touch with Gareth and make use of the valuable help he can provide."

David Pimborough

"Gareth provides a fabulous, free and helpful service to anyone in the local area who needs business information, he is a frequent visitor to Glyndwr University and students can use the Businessline service too and it is especially valuable to those in business or thinking of starting a business. I refer lots of students and graduates to Gareth, he is very approachable and reliable."

Judith Alexander – Zone Manager; Glyndwr University

"I have relied upon Gareth's services many times in recent years. He has always been entirely reliable, effective and a pleasure to deal with. I have come across few people who are as competent and as committed to providing such high-quality service. He is a credit to his employers and to himself. I can recommend him unreservedly."

Dr Neil Thompson - Avenue Consulting Ltd

I recommend everyone in business locally to use BusinessLine and Gareth is my first point of call for business research, grants and networking information."

"I have known Gareth for about ten years and have used the Businessline Services several times in that time span. Gareth is always courteous, efficient and pleasant to work with. I always get an immediate helpful response. Thank you Gareth for many years of good customer service."

Helen Smith - Pharmamatrix & Enhancing Leadership.

"I would like to say a huge thank you for your superb service! When I set up my Marketing Consultancy you were an invaluable source of information in getting established in the market with advice on seminars, networking groups etc. Businessline also generated mailing lists for me on the packaging industry and thanks to that I secured a large new customer. It was through this customer that my client supplied all the bags for the Olympic games in 2012. See website: www.flextex.co.uk."

Alison Roberts, Marketing Manager - Flextex.

"If I had a pound for every guest who has been on my Talking Business show on Calon FM who credited Businessline with helping them to address certain challenges they have faced in business, then I would be a very happy bunny. Truly, the work that Gareth and Karen do from their base at Wrexham Library is just awesome. They are great storehouses of knowledge, signposters to services and connectors of people/companies/groups."

Tracy Jones, The Talking Business show on Calon FM and Rethink and Do.

"We found our recent meeting very useful and didn't quite realise how much support Businessline are able to offer. We now have a through understanding of your services and will be making use of them ourselves as well as on behalf of our clients, as they really do add value."

Robert Ellis - Ellis & Co

"Gareth Hatton is the BEST!! Why? because he provided me with 3 mailing lists within a couple of hours of my request, plus his help promoting the training sessions run by our small company, on the Businessline web-pages has been invaluable. Small companies like us need and appreciate the service that Businessline provides. Thank you Gareth!"

Denise Hughes, BQMC Co UK Limited

"I'm looking into setting up my own business and after trying to get business information from a number of places I tried Businessline. I sent an email asking for some basic information not expecting much help. However, within 2 hours not only did I have the information I needed but much, much more relevant and useful information! I can't fault the service and I will know where my first stop will be next time I need business help. Thanks Gareth!."

Denise Bull, Dee-Licious Delights

"Dear Gareth, I want to thank you and Businessline. We have received amazing support and top quality service at every contact. Thank you very much, we appreciate your help."

Susan Sisay

"I would heartily recommend any budding business to utilise the fantastic array of information available via Gareth and the team, at Businessline.

I myself am just setting out on the "Entrepreneur Road" and have discovered a mountain of marketing statistics, such as those offered up by Keynote. I am on a limited budget and I have been given access to vital market information free of charge. I have also been able to request credit checks on companies that I am interested in doing business with, again free of charge. I feel this minimises the financial risks that may be hidden in any new enterprise.

I would like to thank Wrexham Businessline for providing me with a helping hand."

Shirley Hughes

"I was so thoroughly impressed with the services offered through Businessline. Both Karen and Gareth were so efficient, so professional, and so willing to go above and beyond to cater to your individual needs. I couldn't have completed my business plan without their help and expertise!"

Carol Schulte, Happy Friday

"Since working on the GO Wales programme, based at Glyndwr University Careers Centre, we have very much appreciated the help, information and feedback we have had from Businessline.

The GO Wales aim is to reach out to Welsh employers from all sectors and industries and encourage them to take part in the funded programme including paid placements, Work Tasters, Graduate Training and Development fund and the new graduate stream of Jobs Growth Wales.

The information that Businessline provided to us free of charge has helped us to work with over 200 Welsh businesses. It has helped us to encourage local organisations to work with students and graduates and, in turn, it also helps to grow the Welsh economy.

Not only do the GO Wales team at Glyndwr University use the free information that Businessline provide, but the team at the Careers Centre and many other departments speak very highly of the service and recommend the services to their contacts.

We cannot thank them enough for how supportive and efficient they have been."

Chelsea Moth, GO Wales

"Fantastically prompt and complete response to my request for information on businesses within the region."

Adrian Waters, Adrian Waters Chartered Architect Ltd
