Leading business and financial adviser Grant Thornton UK LLP has launched a new - and very different - office space in Chelmsford, Essex as part of a firm-wide evolution to further facilitate and support new, vibrant business growth across the UK.
The dynamic new space, located in the centre of Chelmsford, offers a contemporary hub for business professionals to meet, connect and access expert advice and follows the launch of a similar venue in St Albans by Grant Thornton in March.
Moving away from the traditional concept of working, the space has been designed to harness the power of collaborative working, with Grant Thornton bringing together mid-sized businesses, enabling conversations and adding meaningful value to discussions.
Paul Dearsley who heads Grant Thornton’s new Chelmsford space, said: “We are deliberately doing things differently at Grant Thornton. We wanted to steer away from the usual idea of an office with everyone working at desks to create an informal, relaxed space where our people and clients can make connections, have open and insightful conversations and develop relationships. We think of the office very much as a place to do business rather than a place to work.”
More than 100 Essex business leaders joined the Grant Thornton team and CEO Sacha Romanovitch to officially open the innovative Chelmsford venue.
Robert Hannah, chief operating officer at Grant Thornton UK LLP, added: “Grant Thornton is a vibrant, forward thinking firm and we see our role at the heart of UK growth. As a trusted adviser and convener, we can bring together other dynamic organisations to share valuable thinking and ideas. Our innovative new spaces in Chelmsford and St Albans build on this idea to positively change the way mid-sized firms do business.”
