After countless visits and meetings to business centres, serviced office’s and commercial office space across the Wirral & Liverpool area, AKOM Creative have recently taken up residence in Liscard Business Centre in the recently refurbished Business Hub.
After narrowly missing out on the availability of one of the office pods earlier in 2017 I was not surprised that Johns serviced offices are in high demand. John and his incredibly highly training and motivated team have now been able to provide me with a top class serviced office, in a great location and more importantly an incredibly positive working environment for me to work and grow my business. Liscard Business Centre now gives me the opportunity to further my networking circle, showcase my business through a highly professional and aesthetically pleasing base and also help with that much needed separation of my work life and personal life.
From day one in my new office, I have received a top class and friendly service, from John and his staff. They have also promptly redecorated my office pod to fit with my brand colours which is a twitchy creative graphics designers dream.
I have already been recommending friends within business and other clients that they come and visit this fantastic business centre and will continue to do so confidently in the future.
Thanks for the great service and I look forward to being a long term resident of Liscard Business Centre.

Telephone Answering Services
I had been using the fabulous call answering services of Liscard for around 8 months before moving into one of the Office Pod in the Hub. The primary reason was so I had a landline and a local number for my website, essential for an online presence. The time saving was a great bonus. The girls are able to screen nuisance and unnecessary sales calls. John can often be found on reception when the girls are on holiday.
During a 121, John mentioned that they often performed light admin duties. As we often run training courses, the ability to take booking and send joining instructions allowed me to focus more on business growth. I have also been able to train them to respond to social media messages and enquiries, a rare skill. The staff at Liscard are thorough and courteous and add a great deal to the overall impression both visitors and callers get when they connect with my business.
When the Office Pods in the Hub became available, I was attracted by their vibrancy and colour. My work is quite creative and felt that it was a creative environment. What I had not expected was that within 10 minutes of moving in I acquired a valuable new client who was another Liscard resident.
My laptop has no Ethernet connection and when I mentioned to John that I could use the WiFi but not the cable connection, he bought me a USB converter. What a STAR!!
I would not hesitate to recommend the services of Liscard Business Centre and the care and attention that John Byrne brings to his business.
When we first discussed Bluebird Care using Liscard Business Centre regarding intercepting our recruitment enquiries, as you can imagine I was somewhat sceptical. I thought, well sounds like a good idea, but will probably end up another expensive mistake. Every telephone Company purports to give a better service than the next Company, but I was prepared to give you the benefit of the doubt and give you an opportunity, and I am glad to say I did.
in the last six months we have taken on a greater number of quality recruits that would have been missed, and the increase in our workforce has meant that we have been able to take on many more care packages, which has helped the community and increased our turnover.
As you can imagine our recruitment has to be up to the job, and I am pleased to say that working with Liscard Business Centre has been one of my better investments.
If you have Companies you are having difficulty in convincing about the quality of your service, please don't hesitate to show them this letter and have them call me and I would be delighted to talk to them.

Testimonial For John Byrne – Liscard Business Centre
For a number of years we have had our registered business address in Liverpool as part of a “Virtual Office” Service. We had no reason to question the service provide by the Liverpool business until we were introduced to Liscard Business Centre.
The level of service was much higher than our existing service provider and Liscard Business Centre offered an actual physical address to visit, rooms available for hire, hot-desking services and a very welcoming team on reception. With regards to the cost of this service, we have made savings of 45% against our previous supplier AND now receive a far superior package and offering.
We now use the business centre address on all communications, use it as our Google Places address, we relax as all our mail is received, signed for and then we get an e mail notification from the team, our business receives promotion through Social Media and have been invited to a number of quality business and networking events.
Currently we only use one service from Liscard Business Centre, but as a business we are fully considering taking on further services from them as we have had excellent service from the team so far. The serviced office option may well be a consideration for us in the future.
I’d like to thank John and his team for the excellent service that they provide to us, for their professionalism and I can fully recommend Liscard Business Centre to any business.
I took one of the first offices at the Liscard Business Centre that John Byrne owns in August this year, to support the growth of my nutrition business, around also continuing to grow my marketing consultancy.
The team at LBC could not have been more helpful and supportive when I moved in to the HUB. Helping to furnish the space, they continually gave me over and above support and fantastic customer service throughout the whole process.
I was also offered services that supported both of my businesses, from office addresses as I had previously worked from home, to accessing the office 24/7 which really helps to grow my nutrition business.
The facilities at the HUB are outstanding. With a training centre and breakout areas, to conduct meetings and workshops. An extra-large kitchen which is a great facility when making refreshments with a group of visitors.
An added element to being a tenant is the interaction with the other business owners and how together we can help to grow each other's brands and businesses.
The space at LBC is fantastic for people who are ready to take their first office when starting in business or who need to create a divide between working from home and their business activities.
I cannot recommend the HUB and the team at LBC enough. Thank you to John and his team.

Since we first moved into the Liscard Business Centre our business has gone from strength to strength. John and his team go above and beyond and offer much more than office space. The offices provide a secure, professional environment to grow your business. We have been here for 4 years and have no intention of leaving.

Some time ago, it became obvious that a more prestigious office address was going to be far better than working from home, particularly with a house move on the cards.
So I spoke to John Byrne and his team at Liscard Business Centre and set up a Virtual Office facility. Throughout the past 12 months this has worked flawlessly. It improves my online visibility and projects a professional image. The staff are always friendly, couteous and efficient and handle any incoming mail for just the cost of the forwarding postage.
For anyone requiring a "proper" office or hot desking space then I heartily endorse the recent developments at liscard Business centre with the addition of the brilliant Office Pods in the Hub Space. They are small one & two man offices avaialable at great prices in a great setting.
I shall continue to renew my license wish John & all the staff at LBC every success.

Testimonial for work completed
I had a virtual office address with John from June 2013 to September 2014 until I expanded and needed to move into my first office in Hamilton Square.
The business address saved me from advertising my home address on my website and business card and gave the impression that I was more than just a one-person business. I was also able to book meeting rooms very easily.
The service that John, Lauren and the rest of the team provide is second to none and the business advice that John has offered to me has played an integral part in the growth of my business.
If you are a home based business that doesn’t want a home address on their business card or website, then it really is a no-brainer, just ring them and sort it. It could help you win that big contract that you wouldn’t normally win with a home address. They can also answer all of your telephone calls too!
I will continue to refer John, Lauren and the rest of the team at Liscard Business Centre.

Liscard Business Centre has been the home of Max Web Solutions since 2008 until December 2014, and has played an integral part in the growth of our company. Liscard Business Centre removed the worry and added cost associated with serviced office suites and we have been able to focus solely on our business where we have seen significant results and growth. The personal yet professional attitude of John Byrne has made office life easy and hassle free. We would highly recommend to all.
Mark Ainsworth, Max Web Solutions
I would like to say how pleased we are with our new offices, in the Liscard business centre. The advice and flexibility you provided, when moving office, made our job so much easier. We are also very pleased with the efficiency of the business centre. You provided us with our keys quickly and set up our telephone system before we moved in and made sure we had the new number. This allowed us to get our new business cards printed quickly. We look forward to forming a happy, long term relationship with everyone at the business centre and see the centre as a big part in our future growth strategy. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend The Business Centre to anyone, as it has a relaxed yet professional atmosphere and has made renting and moving to our new offices very simple and hassle free.

Wirral Metropolitan College have a long-term relationship with Liscard Business Centre. We rent the entire ground floor of the building as an outreach centre of the College. This is a very popular venue for our students and staff. The environment is lovely and the building is always clean, tidy, warm and friendly. The Centre is run by the landlord, whom is approachable, hands on and professional at all times.

John I just want to take this opportunity to thank you for providing us with a hot desk at your Liscard Business Centre;
Since taking the hot desk, we have become more productive and it’s been great for customers to be able to Google us and find we are no longer located at a home address.
I’d like to also thank you for being so for being so accommodating and being there when we need advice and guidance. Your experience in business and your laid back “nothing is a problem” persona is a credit to you and I thank you for all the advice you have given us; most of which had been put into practice.
I would highly recommend Liscard Business Centre to any business that wants to get on the map; thank you once again for what you have done for us.

"We have been at Liscard Business Centre for a year now and in that time we have found the time very rewarding.
We find the flexibility of the easy in/out contract extremely useful as small business’ especially in today’s financial climate constantly have to look at cash flow. The other good thing is that the offices within the centre are of varying sizes and prices and this can also assist it you are looking to expand or downsize.
The centre is clean, tidy at all times and is very health & safety conscious. The facilities are excellent and the centre staff are very polite, professional and helpful.
The other important factor is that the landlord has installed state of the art security systems for the building as a wholeand also the individual offices."

We have rented an office from Liscard Business Centre for 3 years, having chosen it for the excellent location in the area and the lovely building it resides in.
From the change of management 2 years ago Liscard Business Centre has been brilliant with all aspects of a serviced office. The pricing is without exception the best I have seen, no hidden costs, no agenda, just pure & simple an excellent serviced office with outstanding customer service.
John is a fantastic owner / manager - whenever I have needed help no matter how small the problem is he has been able to solve the issue immediately whilst having an incredibly helpful, warm and welcoming attitude which puts our business in good light with our clients when speaking with John on the phone and when visiting.
Liscard business centre is extremely professional and approachable with a constant high standard of service. The time invested by John to ensure the work environment is well attended, well equipped and friendly is very much valued.
We have no hesitation in recommending Liscard business centre as the perfect location for your business, you will find everything you will ever need for a serviced office can be achieved here."

I was impressed by the level of service from John, right from the start. He is very professional and courteous. He gave me good honest advice.
His Virtual Offices are great value for money and this fact has helped my business grow, the main reason is that people do not think I am a one man band.
I would recommend John's services without hesitation, not only do you get the Virtual Office which has lots of benefits for your business, but also John is always willing to offer advice and support. He is one of the most helpful men I have met, with lots of business experience and always willing to share his knowledge.
Lisa Evans - G Evans Electrical
I would like to offer my testimonial to reflect the quality of service and infrastructure offered by Liscard Business Centre.
Following our move into offices this week, John has accommodated both our strict telephone requirements (for our work with legal Companies) to physically helping our office set up.
We've moved from Virtual Office tenants to an actual tenant within a professional, well presented environment and would encourage any business to utilize the first class services available at Liscard Business Centre
Karla Billington - Cloud Business Centre
