Recipe for Success

Most people have a perception that great tech by itself equals success. That is not the case!

We know this to be true because of our team’s long history of collaborating in the world of marketing, and bringing that experience and learning to the technology sector. As you can imagine, our marketing agency was an entirely service-based business. Every new project started with a clean slate, and customer loyalty had to be earned each and every day. We didn’t wait for the phone to ring. It was our job to consistently check in and proactively offer service and support to each client on every project.

Making PLACES destinations of CHOICE

The return to office story is getting tired. I don’t think anyone is interested in continuing to hear the polarizing commentary that some still feel the need to share. Let’s change the narrative.

The conversation needs to move away from ‘where to work’, towards just ‘work’. Let’s agree to focus our energy on doing the work to create great companies, and not get bogged down on where that work should take place. If that requires us to be in the company of our colleagues and mentors, then that’s great! And if that work is best accomplished at home or a local café, then that is great too!

So what does that mean for our cast of characters in this story; buildings, occupiers, and occupants (the millions of people that choose to work in person)?
