boardroom collaboration
I wrote about this already in 2015, but some specific examples came up and I thought it would be good to share them, to show some actual examples of how working in a shared space can be of huge benefit to your business, and sometimes even to your social life!

flexible workJust how flexible is your flexible work?

I was recently doing some research into ‘flexible working’, and discovered this PwC article, which summed up quite strongly my understanding and experience since opening the business centre. Flexible work means many things to many people, but generally, the business world is changing. More employees, small business owners and entrepreneurs are trying to achieve that work/life balance that many of us spend our whole life trying to create. I have to agree that the statement in the article rings very true for me (not just Millenials!) –
For their part, Millennials do not believe that productivity should be measured by the number of hours worked at the office, but by the output of the work performed. They view work as a “thing” and not a “place”. ”

I wrote this piece on LinkedIn Pulse discussing it further – have a read – I’d love to hear your thoughts!
