Enrich children's imagination through the power of story telling

26Jan

Inspiring a love of books is one of the best ways to prepare children for a lifetime of learning and enjoyment through reading. One of the many elements of reading is the art of story telling. 

Story telling is an ancient art form and continues to this day as a vibrant part of culture through the world. Entice your classroom this National Story Telling Week into the world of pirates, faraway lands, fairytales and graphic novels, inspiring everyone to share their own stories and imagination.  

For National Story Telling Week (26/01-02/02) our very own Alan Foster will be reading The Bumble Bear by Nadia Shireen which will be available through Square One and our social media.  

‘There’s a new bee at Bee School. But that is not a bee… it’s a BEAR! Cheeky, sneaky Norman has a cunning plot to trick the bees and steal their honey. In his best bee onesie, Norman makes quite a convincing bee, but how long will his disguise last? And when the hive is endangered can he finally discover his true destiny and become The Bumblebear?’

READ ALL ABOUT IT – Concero’s new office …

READ ALL ABOUT IT – Concero’s new office …

After 10 years in business we have finally purchased commercial premises following funding from Barclays and we couldn’t be happier. 

Bradley Clegg said: “When we started out in 2008 it would have been difficult to imagine that we would have been able to grow the business to the size we have, to be offering employment opportunities and now to be owning our own premises. We will look to build on this success in the coming years.”

Jaspreet Aulakh, relationship manager at Barclays in the Black Country, said: “Concero UK Ltd are a good example of a business that has grown steadily over the years and created a specialised service in the education sector. I am delighted we have been able to support them with this purchase and look forward to watching the continued growth of the business.”

If you are visiting us or even want to write to us our new address is Concero UK Ltd

Suite D The Westlands,132 Compton RdWolverhamptonWV3 9QB and is situated opposite the Grammar School. 

Concero 10-year Anniversary Party

14Aug

Concero 10-year anniversary 

On Friday 22ndJune Concero celebrated 10 successful years in business with an unmissable event with over 300 guests.  Our fabulous party was held at Grand Station in Wolverhampton City Centre, which is an amazing venue built at the old low-level station in Sun St. All the guests dressed up for this glamourous event and were definitely red carpet ready. 

The entertainment for the evening was kept a secret from James, Bradley and the Concero team which made it even more special to watch everyone’s reactions. Sweilem Ltd organised the whole event from start to finish including organising the guest list, designing invites, the entertainment, food and photography. 

Our highlight from the party was the surprise film about how Concero began which was created by Henry Go Park the Car Productions. The film included witty stories about James and Brad that had everyone in stitches. This was followed up with our very own ‘Concero Conspiracy’ band, blasting out soul and rock, formed with Concero staff members including Alan Foster, Jim Cooper, Stefan Jones, Chris Wilkinson, Andy Cunningham, Sean Russell and our cameo Concero member, lead singer Jason Mansell. After this amazing performance we all danced the night away.

Concero would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who attended the event and those who were unable to attend. None of this would be possible without the support of all our loyal customers. Every person who attended the evening has contributed to the success of this small local business getting to the position that it is in now. Concero are still passionate about what they do even after 10 years of business and wanted to share their success with you all. So, from everyone at Concero – thank you.

It was a successful day for everyone involved and Concero are proud to be part of such a fantastic organisation.
