-- Direct sales & Marketing experts Glasgow interactive discovered this week that according to a recent report form Legal & General, the British multinational financial services company: “Despite gloomy stories that UK job creation has fallen to a three year low, UK workers are feeling very positive and demonstrating great entrepreneurial spirit.” As a successful entrepreneur himself, Glasgow Interactive’
s Managing Director Gilles Baudet believes that as the UK continues to struggle with a double-dip recession, many employees are now seeing the stark benefits of running your own business.
According to last month’s ONS (Office for National Statistics) stats, the younger generation face the greatest risk of being left without work with record high unemployment levels in 18-24 year olds leaving nearly one in five currently out of work. Glasgow Interactive have always encouraged their representatives to display an entrepreneurial spirit and actively encourage people to continue to learn and develop the skills and business knowledge required to run your own successful business. Gilles Baudet, Managing Director at Glasgow Interactive holds regular seminars and open days giving those at Glasgow Interactive the chance to network with other successful people within their field. Last year, a selection of Glasgow Interactive’
s budding entrepreneurs were invited to attend an industry awards ceremony in London hosted by business guru and star of TV’s Dragons Den, James Caan.
Glasgow Interactive believe there is cause for optimism as The Job Security Index claimed: “The younger generations appear to have the most entrepreneurial flair, as almost a third,(32%) of those aged between 25 and 34 years stated they would look into starting their own enterprise. In addition, the research showed that a quarter (25%) of those aged between 18 and 24 years old would be keen to start up their own business if they were made unemployed.”
Gilles Baudet believes the rise in the number of young entrepreneurs taking control of their future and starting their own businesses is a welcome sight in a tough economic time. He commented: “I believe we should be doing all we can to help teach people how to start their own business and more importantly be successful in the long-term. That’s exactly what we need to help kick-start the economy.”
Glasgow Interactive always meet with their clients and customers face-to-face, creating strong and lasting relationships. In a world where the traditional methods of marketing and advertising products has changed dramatically, Baudet believes many brands have lost their ‘personal touch’ with consumers relying on online reviews and statistics when it comes to making a buying decision. He concluded: “This is why what we do is so effective - as a business owner you genuinely care about making your clients and your customers happy, that is reflected in the way in which we work here. Our people are our and as long as we keep our clients happy with great results and our customers happy with great deals, we’ll continue to grow as quickly as we’ve done recently.”
