Highlights from the Business Show & We Mean Business

It’s been a busy month here at Get Ahead VA with our team attending not one but two key business exhibitions to spread the word about outsourcing and the benefits of using a virtual agency to grow your business.

Mid May saw our team at The Business Show in ExCel in London – the biggest business show in Europe. The arena was packed with over 25,000 visitors and exhibitors over the two days. We were delighted to meet so many lovely people – from solicitors to software companies, music publishers to market research consultants and insurers to international translators.


Our very own founder and CEO Rebecca Newenham delivered an educational seminar on the value of outsourcing to a packed house and also enjoyed being on a panel to talk about work life balance and flexible working – something we feel passionate about here at Get Ahead VA.  Rebecca’s fact-packed presentation highlighted the growth and importance of the outsourcing industry, which delivers £21bn to the UK economy in added value.  Using case studies from real clients she demonstrated how outsourcing can add value in three key areas: cash, consistency and control.  Rebecca said: “I was delighted to see so many people at the seminar, but I was not surprised given how busy the exhibition arena was and how many people had already stopped to chat with us on our stand.  It was great to see people really understanding the benefits of outsourcing and what it could deliver for their businesses – large or small.”

On 18th May our team were back on the road exhibiting at the We Mean Business Expo in Croydon.  Rebecca and Melanie enjoyed making another set of new contacts from all sorts of different businesses, as well as catching up with a few known faces.  Rebecca said: “We had some really useful conversations with prospective clients and it is great to see Croydon developing.”.
