We’re pleased to announce that we have opened up our Blackburn based office to welcome Sales Consultancy, Sales Geek to our award winning One Cathedral Square in the centre of Blackburn.


The announcement follows successful negotiations between Directors of our organisations and the move now sees us both taking up residency on the fifth floor at One Cathedral Square, Blackburn.


Commenting on the move, our Chairman Richard Mellor said: Businesses are beginning to re-evaluate their current office location for many reasons. We’re pleased to be able to offer this exciting opportunity from our headquarters in Blackburn. It’s great to see Sales Geek are in a position to expand their office space and we’re thrilled to welcome them to One Cathedral Square.”


Sales Geek founder and CEO Richard Few said: “We couldn’t be more proud or excited to have moved our entire head office into the magnificent One Cathedral Square. We really see it as a big step up in our Lancashire presence and a fantastic investment in our team.”


In addition to opening our own office on the fifth floor, we’ve also launched new venture, ‘CQ Works’. An exciting and modern shared co-working office space, welcoming businesses of various sizes to take up full or part time residence across two additional floors at Cathedral Quarter.


Richard Mellor also commented; “Like us, many organisations are currently in an exciting period of change and transition. As a result of COVID19, businesses are now looking to relocate due to growth, downsize offices due to remote working or find a flexible space for their new entrepreneurial venture born during the pandemic. We’ve teamed up with Blackburn and Darwen Council to be able to deliver short-lease flexible office space for businesses looking to expand, downsize or relocate.”


CQ Works

CQ Works provides the ideal location for companies to rent meeting space on a short-term lease with low risk. As well as the modern space, CQ Works also comes with the additional benefit of wider business support if required, including HR, payroll and financial advice as well as meeting space and refreshment points.
