Big Wolf Marketing

Working from the Coachworks

Using The Coachworks’ co-working space regularly for a local hub in Ashford is award-winning sales and marketing expert Pierre Coombes, Founder and Managing Director of Big Wolf Marketing Group. The international group of B2B marketing agencies specialising in client acquisition has helped over 450 companies in the tech and finance sectors grow their sales.

Whilst Big Wolf Marketing’s main offices are in London, the Managing Director often runs his business remotely, and The Coachworks proved the perfect location to work away from the office. Living locally, he saves time by not commuting every day but can still easily meet up with his team when he needs to thanks to regular HS1 services. The company also has clients in Paris and Brussels, and the Eurostar* trains to both European capitals at Ashford International station is another valuable aspect.

Another reason for choosing The Coachworks is the work environment. After visiting the co-working space, Pierre Coombes found the setting less formal and much more inviting than other co-working spaces he’d worked in before. The growing entrepreneurial community at The Coachworks is also proving to be a great added bonus.

“The Coachworks is a nice space to work in and it gives me space to run the business externally. It’s a great community, a growing community, and it’s perfect to get to London in under 40 minutes.”

I decided to locate myself here at The Coachworks because it’s a very practical place to be. We’ve got clients in Paris and Brussels and it’s just under two hours away. It’s also very quick into London from Ashford International.
