Tell us about your company
OTHO provides training and consultancy services in the three interlinked areas of safety, security and crisis management. It provides services to the public and private sectors in the UK and globally.
Safety, security and crisis management are often seen as separate disciplines. However, experience demonstrates that not only are they often intrinsically linked, failures in safety and security can quickly develop into a crisis which may, in certain situations, result in death and injury, investigations, prosecutions and the ultimate failure of individuals and their organisations.
When did you move in?
OTHO moved in to The Hive September 2015.
Why did you chose The Hive?
We chose The Hive as a consequence of attending a meeting in the Beekeeper’s conference room earlier in 2015. We were impressed with all the facilities that were on offer, plus the very competitive charges. The location (with ease of access to the M5 motorway, national rail facilities and Bristol Airport), on-site free parking and general security of the site all added to the value of securing an operating base there.
How have you found The Hive experience so far?
The experience so far has been fantastic, and there is now an established diverse business community, with great opportunities to learn from the experience of others, including start-ups and more established business outlets.
Would you recommend it and why?
I would recommend The Hive to anyone who wants to take those important next steps on the path of business growth and development. Whether you are single business owner-operator, or an established entity, moving to The Hive enables you to set up your operation in a professional environment that can’t help to impress your clients. Help is on hand from a wide range of sources, including regular tenants’ meetings, networking opportunities and social gatherings. You really will feel part of something special when you come to work from The Hive!
