Having been working out of an office at CSIC this past year, I felt the need to jot down the plus points of renting a serviced office here.
The support staff here are superb, always there when you have a problem and always eager to help support your business. Every Thursday they host a coffee and cake/fruit morning which is a great way to network, have a friendly chat to other staff based here or just relax and have a hot beverage whilst browsing the newspapers (provided daily by the centre).
The offices themselves are clean and come in a variety of sizes, all with network and telephone access points dotted around walls. The common room/kitchens are well maintained and are always clean and tidy.
Having viewed other serviced offices in and around Banbury, CSIC offered our business the kind of office we required at a very competitive price.
Great working environment. Nice people and even nicer staff!

I am very pleased to provide a testimonial for the accomodation and services we enjoy here at The Colin Sanders Innovation Centre....
....Although we are only a small business, we feel very much part of a bigger ship and your support team make it a pleasure to work here. 24 hour access enables me to stretch my working day and if demands have to be met I can spend my weekends here as well. I try not to make too much of a habit of late working but it's great to know that I can do it when I need to, that the kitchen is there to keep the black coffee flowing and that after three years I can still honestly say that I actually look forward to coming into work.

Colin Sanders Innovation Centre was recommended to Cyclone Services by other local business, what started as a stepping stone move, quickly became our business base!
The Innovation Centre offers Cyclone Services excellent office accomodation while the Managment and staff offer us a working partnership through their service support.
The standard of service provided, far exceeds any other office service Centre that we have used in the past. The Management team offer a flexible approach that suits our needs as a business.
There are regularly organised networking events that enable our business teams to interact with other business within our local area.
I would have no hesitation in recommending The Colin Sanders Centre and their Management team to other companies who are looking for a home to run their business.
