Case study: Cotton Court Business Centre

Cotton Court Business Centre offer conference, meeting space, hot space and fully serviced offices and have virtual services like call handling, business address and admin support in Preston, Lancashire.

Managing Director, Robert Binns booked YOLO Wellbeing because he wanted to promote Stress Awareness Day, 6th November, amongst his staff and clients; and provide an activity that demonstrated Cotton Court’s commitment to mental wellbeing in the workplace.


  1. The Management Team wanted to provide a wellbeing activity to staff and clients that combats stress and improves their emotional health.
  2. The Management Team wanted to raise awareness of stress in the workplace.
  3. The Management Team wanted to use the YOLO Wellbeing activity to demonstrate to their clients and staff that they are invested in their wellbeing.
  4. The Management Team wanted to create competitive advantage over similar businesses to theirs in the local area, by looking after the needs of their clients.

How did YOLO Wellbeing meet the objectives?

The staff and clients were invited to book a YOLO Wellbeing experience, offering each individual 15 minutes of ‘me-time’, away from the workplace to relax and de-stress.

The clients and staff commented that they enjoyed the experience and appreciated the investment made by the Cotton Court Management Team who provided it to them for free.

After the treatment, the reception team at Cotton Court reported that clients who’d had the treatment talked about it in the office and they received additional requests for treatments from staff and clients who had previously not booked appointments.

YOLO Wellbeing worked with Cotton Court to create and publish a joint press release to promote the event on local news websites: Lancashare, Business Lancashire, Lancashire Evening Post and the blog on Cotton Court’s own website and our shared social media channels.
