We’re proud of the support we give our customers, but don’t just take our word for it! Here are just a few of the comments from people we’ve helped in business across the region:
The free one day start-up business introduction I attended on Wednesday (6 February 2013) was truly amazing and I would recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone thinking of setting up a new business or who have just started one. This can lead on to a 4 day course that goes into far more depth and would set up budding entrepreneurs for years of success ahead. Fantastic!
- Graham Cann
"Been on an amazing course this week at NWES! 4 days well spent learning about business planning and finance! Feel like I've accomplished more in the 2 months since getting in touch with NWES for help than I did in the 18 months before that!"
- Sammi Jollans
We had a lovely evening at the EADT Future 50 Suffolk Graduation ceremony. It was great to meet the other nominees and network with such positive, inspirational people. A big thank you to NWES for all their support and help so far, you do an amazing job!

“I tried every single help service available and was told me that my idea wouldn't work; there was no funding, or there was no room... When I was introduced to NWES I was expecting much of the same. To my surprise I was informed about the self employment programme. Since then I have been able to build my own business, finally getting back into work after almost 5 years without a reliable job. Every problem, issue or concern has been quickly addressed by my business mentor and the services and help I've received from NWES have literally changed my life.”

"I will always hold the last six years of my working life at North East Suffolk Business Centre as the most memorable and happiest. My gratitude to all the [NWES] staff for the efficient and happy manner in dealing with the day to day running of the centre, nothing has ever been too much trouble!”
- Gary May, retired clock repairer
“Mrs White is fabulous......she was so helpful and able to relate things to my business”
- Joanne Stevenson MFHP
"The staff at Beacon Innovation Centre are friendly, helpful, very informative and professional. Nothing seems too much trouble for them when dealing with their clients requirements and requests. The conference facility is modern, comfortable and very clean and comes equipped with all that is needed for businesses to undertake conferences, private meetings or training. I have and will continue to recommend this facility to my business associates."
"The conference room at OrbisEnergy was the perfect size and layout for our needs. Our thanks to Lauren who was very helpful and accommodating and even found us a photographer at short notice when ours was unable to attend at short notice!"
- Jackie Fairweather, Suffolk Children's University
"Apart from having great staff, your company is one in a million. Thanks for all your help."
- Omolara Lawrence
"I would like to say a big thank you to Marilyn Reeves, Administration Co-ordinator at Leiston Enterprise Centre for taking an interest in myself and my business and for introducing me to useful contacts such as Nick Boulter from Ipswich Community Radio. Many thanks."
- Vivian Fox, Suffolk Scribe
"I have had and continue to have the pleasure of dealing with business adviser Martyn Owens. He is extremely helpful and supportive, very knowledgeable, and is always approachable - answering what at times must seem like the most mundane and ridiculous questions in a positive manner. What I particularly appreciate is the fact that he tells me what I need to know - and not what I want to hear. In other words he is realistic and honest with his answers. He is very focused on providing good, solid and realistic information and guidance, and I take heed of what he says, and would hope that even once I get a contract and start my business I can look forward to his ongoing support."
