Face for Business – Telephone Answering Service

Face for Business, a UK call answering service, discovered Global Entrepreneurship Week last year, during its ‘Take a Step Forward’ theme. As a company, we’d just innovated and developed an online diary management system for the driving schools we take calls for. Here a link to our blog.  We hope you could take a couple of minutes to read how we developed our provision for independent driving instructors, too.

Global Entrepreneurship Week

Global Entrepreneurship Week is an initiative set-up to initiate start-ups and give entrepreneurs a place to go to gain more information. Global Entrepreneurship Week takes place each November, and thrives on the collaboration between mentors, investors and participants. There is an abundance of advice, information and events to enthuse those who would like to start their own business. With majorly successful people like Richard Branson, Michael Dell and Muhammad Yunus spearheading the event, there is inspiration aplenty.
