Emma Unsworth – Manor by The Lake & Woodhall Manor

Client Testimonials

Emma Unsworth – Executive Personal Assistant to Michael Chittendon, owner of Manor by The Lakes & Woodhall Manor
I recently had the pleasure of speaking to Emma Unsworth, the PA to Michael Chittendon, Michael is the owner of multiple businesses, including two spectacular wedding and conference venues set in their own grounds near Cheltenham and Ipswich. Both venues are stunning properties which feature in the Condé Nast Johansens, the directory of the world’s most prestigious venues and hotels.
Michael has been a client of BBX since June 2015, and I was keen to find out more about their experience with BBX, the UK’s fastest growing alternative currency.

What do you sell on BBX?
“Our two properties are luxury wedding and conference venues and, like most other hotels, we have unsold rooms from time to time. BBX allows us to market that spare capacity to other clients of the BBX network, turning it into BBX pounds which we can then use to buy products and services from other BBX clients.”

“For example, at The Manor by the Lake, we have successfully sold several corporate events on BBX. At Woodhall Manor, we have been able to offer BBX clients 1 night B&B accommodation.”

How do you spend your BBX Pounds?
From talking to Emma, it was evident that they had no difficulty converting their occasional unused rooms into revenue, but I wanted to know if they found it easy to spend those same trade pounds.

“It’s my job to manage our BBX account and to use it where possible in place of cash. To date we have spent our BBX pounds on a variety of goods and services including: event signage, paint and brushes, oak floor sanding, banner stands, rattan outdoor dining furniture, wedding chair covers, tickets to a business show and even a chaise longue for the office!”

What do you like best about BBX?
“BBX is simple to use, the fee structure is fair, and, most importantly, there are plenty of goods and services available, so we have no problems spending our trade pounds.”

Emma also told me that they had an excellent working relationship with their BBX Account Manager. “He understands our needs and regularly draws our attention to trade offers which he thinks would be of interest to us.”

And finally
I concluded our meeting by asking Emma what advice she would give someone considering joining the BBX UK network.

“I would say go for it if you are confident that you can spend the trade pounds that BBX will generate for you. As with any business proposition do your due diligence and make sure that there are products and services, that you currently pay cash for, available through BBX in your area.”
