Fellow Finalist - Netstationers

I interviewed Melvin Byles today, erstwhile general manager of the local franchise of Netstationers and fellow finalist in the West Berkshire Business Club Business of the Year competition.

We nailed what we needed for the advertisement feature he has won as part of the prize for reaching the finals, with Melvin capturing the essence of his company with powerful statements like:

“What makes us unique is how Netstationers believes in the value of technology, as a way to remove time and cost from businesses procurement. We were the first fully on-line office supplies company and are currently the fastest growing office supplies company in the UK.”

However, the reality was we were having far too much fun gossiping about the thrilling world that is enterprise in West Berkshire!

There was some modestly elevated drama when I took some photos of Mel and a businessman in another part of the foyer objected most rudely. First insisting he did not want to be in the photos (he wasn’t) and then that it was distracting him. Well, pick one! The truth is I felt obliged to take a couple more for good measure!
