The Number One Business Centre

The Number One Business Centre One Business Centre offers not only a complete trade licensing and business registration service, but one taking place under the valued DMCC registration, the UAE’s most in demand free zone. We invited Ryan Kuchel to tell us more about the firm and the vast array of services it offers. Located in Dubai’s newest premium grade and Gold LEED accredited commercial office tower in the heart the UAE’s most dynamic Free Zone for trade, One Business Centre is Jumeirah Lakes Towers premium business centre providing a range of luxury, fully serviced offices and creative co-working spaces supported by in-house services including company incorporation, full PRO services and extended reception services. Ryan discusses the firm’s service offering in more detail and comments on the unique nature of this innovative business. “Here at One Business Centre, we provide extremely flexible

working environments, ideal for the entrepreneur at each stage of business development. From ‘plug and go’ through to individual cabin spaces, through to fully-equipped and spacious offices allowing companies maximum scope for expansion. Whatever the service they need, each and every client receives the support of a dedicated relationship manager, who can provide ongoing logistical and infrastructure support throughout the duration of tenancy at One Business Centre.” Overall, the firm’s mission is to provide the foremost serviced office environment in the UAE. A mission whose success is constantly reviewed against the world-class benchmarks of DMCC. To achieve this, One Business Centre continually benchmarks itself against the management culture exemplified by the best practice in the SME space and the quality commitments pioneered by DMCC. This innovative and proactive approach has resulted in two global awards from the Financial Times. Continuous improvement is of vital important to the firm, and as such it is implemented both for clients and internally amongst staff, as Ryan explains. “Internally, our culture is best described as training and benchmarking, with a remit for all employees to see life from

the perspective of the client. Continuous client feedback enables us to implement a ‘Kaizen’ approach of continuous improvement. Other tools which we use to benchmark performance include mystery shopping of our own services and that of our competitors.” Looking ahead, One Business Centre is determined to become the leading provider of serviced office accommodation to the SME and Enterprise sectors and be seen as the pioneer of high-quality, sustainable business environments. Ryan concludes by talking us through the developments he foresees in the market and how these will facilitate this growth for One Business Centre.

We see more government support for incubation of the SME sector over the next few years which will be important to firms such as ours. “Fundamentally, our core goal is to be the first touchpoint for new start-ups and new business’ entering the region. Through our ‘one stop shop’ offering we make it really easy and convenient for SME’s to focus on delivering their core services.”

Glen Stratton from Altro talks to us about what the company have done to help transform everyday spaces into environments that can improve the wellbeing of everyone that uses them. Altro is a third generation, family owned business that manufacturers hygienic floor and wall coverings. Altro APAC is a fully owned subsidiary with teams in China, Australia, New Zealand and distribution partners in most other Asian countries. Glen Stratton spoke to us about the firms impact in the industry. “We are a global leader of specialised products to the health, education, hospitality, retail and pharmaceutical sectors. We are often first to market with innovative products. Our client base is rather wide including governments, architects, builders, flooring contractors and end users. “In Asia Pacific, we are focused on delivering the highest quality solutions and an exceptional customer experience. Because we offer specialised products for high function areas we can separate our products and services from our competitors, who have a more general approach to these sectors. By building long term value added relationships we feel this will

continue to set us apart into the future. “We have spent a lot of time as a team establishing who we are, what we stand for and why we are doing what we do. We are very focused on staying true to these principles. Bringing in talented people, empowering them and then supporting their own growth is also proving beneficial.” Glen explains what the challenges of working in the APAC region are and how he has managed to overcome these challenges through keeping motivated and positive. “As we sell premium products in the construction market with a focus on safety hygiene and sustainability, the biggest challenges have been emerging markets where these factors are lower priorities for many of the individual markets. Ensuring we stay true to our core strategy while addressing specific local needs is proving successful. It is a slow process however we have persistence, our own good people and some great regional partners taking us forward.

“I get the motivation I need to succeed from our people. Helping them succeed and achieve their own goals in both business and life is very satisfying. There are times where you need to step back and reflect and finding that time for personal thought is also important to me.” “One of the appealing things about the APAC region is that it is so diverse. This provides big challenges however also big opportunities for companies who get their strategy correct. Of course these days, no one is truly isolated from world events however I feel there are still many emerging markets in the region that will provide a bright future for us.” As well as staying motivated in order to ensure the success of the business, Glen lists the other attributes he has that he believes have made him successful. “Active listening, patience, persistence and a drive for constant improvement are behaviours I hold dear. I also feel the focus to strip away all the distractions and focus on what is

“The construction industry continues to become more and more focused on price. The majority of building continues to be completed as cheaply as possible rather than delivering quality long term solutions to end-users. Margin issues and time line pressures for our customers continue to increase and in 2016 we saw several large flooring contractors enter in to periods of financial hardship or liquidation. “As we supply products to specialised areas such as Hospital surgeries, developments in technology is going to play a huge part in our future. Altro have a dedicated innovations team with the specific goals of creating products that contribute to healthy environments and improved well-being. Recently we
