Outside The Box



How to make an Inspiring and Commercially Viable office space for 2020:


1. Talent – Offices are about People

a. Location Location Location - I love where I work, both in and around the office (and there’s excellent coffee next door)

b. Great Transport - It’s easy for me and everyone in the office to get to – with many choices – that means Central.


2. Health and Wellbeing

a. Space, Light and Air - A pleasant place to sit – the ability to open a window – the opposite of ‘corporate’

b. Mobility - I work around the office – not glued to my desk – hot-desk when appropriate – no two days are the same


1. Digital Connectivity

a. Speed - The Internet is as fast as can be – a dedicated line. The work thrives on real-time International linkage.

b. Flexi-time - I work from home sometimes – it’s good to be flexible – and there is no loss of efficiency.
