Why we started at Square1

Everyone knows that starting at square one is ALWAYS a good idea. And that’s exactly what we did when we needed a new brand identity, marketing strategy and all the funky stuff that goes with it. Square1 are an awesome marketing communications agency and the creative force behind not just the look and feel of Fountain Training, but they also built this lovely website and have helped us immeasurably with all the brand, marketing and advertising for our company. They’re a great bunch of guys and we have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking for a really well thought out and implemented marketing solution.

Open for Business!

After months of preparation, building, branding and training we officially opened The Fountain on Thursday 10th January with a glittering launch party, attended by a capacity crowd of the great and the good from the business travel, MICE and local industries. The Fountain – a place to meet, to train, to learn and to think – was certainly the place to be last night! The champagne was flowing, flame machines burning, music pumping and roving magician, Dorian, amazing everyone with incredible tricks we’re still scratching our heads over. But, undeniably, the star of the show was The Fountain itself – our beautiful venue, breathtaking surroundings and stunning AV technology wowed everyone in the capacity crowd. Guest of honour and cutting the official opening ribbon was Paul Wait, newly appointed Chairman of the GTMC who said: “This is a truly stunning venture and clearly demonstrates Giles Travel’s characteristic innovation, style, entrepreneurial spirit and business acumen. It is a wonderful facility that I hope many potential future industry stars and personalities pass through.” David Giles, Chairman of The Giles Group (our parent company), added: “The Fountain will provide a rich experience for clients and their delegates, combining the latest technology with personal service that will truly benefit local businesses and other groups. The launch will demonstrate the services we have to offer, which I hope will be well received and a major success.” As well as running as a stand-alone business, The Fountain will also be home to The Giles Academy – a centre of excellence in business travel education and specialist vocational training. Giles Travel is working closely with the GTMC, higher education colleges and business travel industry leaders such as Sabre, to develop unique and accredited business travel courses and syllabi. Don’t worry if you missed the party. To arrange a personal tour of the venue and to pick up a Fountain goodie bag just drop us a line or call Kerry on 01494 733400. Once you’ve visited The Fountain your business meetings, training and promotional events will never be the same...
