by Kim Aaronricks

The latest episode of the Essex Business Podcast has now been released, featuring practical tips and specialist advice from sought-after experts and professional advisers across the county, to help companies thrive post-lockdown.

In a recent survey by  Tide , the UK’s leading business financial platform, two Essex locations were voted in the top 10 places to start a business outside of London, with Chelmsford at number 4 and Colchester at number 5.

In this episode of the Essex business podcast, we look at what factors draw organisations into these areas.

Stuart Edmonds, Founder and Creative Director at marketing agency  Strive  explains why he set up his new business in Chelmsford.

Plus, we talk to Helen Quinnell, Economic Development Officer at  Chelmsford City Council , and Councillor Darius Laws,  Colchester Council ’s Portfolio Holder for Economy, Business and Heritage, about what Essex’s only city, and Britain’s oldest town have to offer.
