    What our customers say

    "Being part of ICKG has been fundamental in the growth of Ubie Ltd. Having the expert advice of business coach Neil Griffin on-site and regular events organised by Georgina Watts, makes the centre stand out from a traditional office space. The collaboration aspect of having a fixed desk has opened multiple opportunities for my company."
