Needspace? purchased the business centre back in 2006 and this centre has always remained popular due to the locality to Wandsworth High Street and Earlsfield train station. Offices range from 2 person suites with many options available, along with 2 well equipped meeting rooms, available to hire by the hour or day.
William Goodacre the founder and director of Tastes of Italy is very pleased that he has remained with us for such a long time and here is what he say about us:
I started off in a 2 person flexible office space, then due to business changes I downsized to a ‘desk’ in a shared office. I really enjoyed being in a shared unit, I found the interaction between other clients beneficial as I often sought their opinions on business matters and it was an added bonus that socially we all got along really well. If you are a sole worker and miss human interaction whilst working, then I highly recommend you consider a desk in a shared office.
In 2018 Tastes of Italy business was growing and so was its team, so I moved from a ‘desk’ in the shared office back into my own private office.
Needspace? gives small independent businesses the flexibility to downsize and upsize and the building is maintained and managed well. Jeanette our Centre Manager has a lot of charisma and customer service experience and looks after all the clients really well. Most importantly for me is that I trust my landlord and with Needspace? I do! This is the reason why I have been here for such a long time.
Set up by Old Etonian William Goodacre, Tastes of Italy is a specialist food and wine tour operator working with customers in the UK and worldwide. It helps businesses, private clubs and individuals to arrange exceptional food and wine trips to Italy, with clients from afar afield as Hong Kong, the US and Australia.
Having worked in travel for 25 years William, who holds a Level 3 Advanced Wine & Spirits Education Trust certification was surprised to discover that the luxury travel industry was largely ignorant about fine wines.
Undertaking investment to grow the team, the company has seen operating profits grow 20% in one year with the team joined by Italian sommelier Angelo Turi and fine wine merchant Brough Gurney-Randall. The company is currently expanding its range of tours to include wine tours in France, Spain and Portugal.
We are proud that Tastes of Italy have been with us at the Earlsfield Business Centre for 12 years and we look forward to working with them for many more years to come.
