MyWorkSpot – Meet our Members

Will Ballantyne November 9, 2017

At MyWorkSpot we offer a range of services from private office space through to pay per hour hotdesks, as well as professional but inspiring meeting and event space. Add to that our regular calendar of value add events and Lunch & Learns, then we think we have built a really great place to work!

BUT don’t take our word for it. It’s our fantastic business community of MyWorkSpot residents that really make this a vibrant and exciting office to work from in the heart of Maidenhead. Here’s what they had to say….

Name and Business?
Andy Lambert, ContentCal (Middle)

What does your business do?
We are a social media company. We offer a software and services to help companies of all sizes deliver social media marketing at scale. www.contentcal.io/

Why MyWorkSpot?
Our head office is in East London and we have about 20 people there delivering the social media services side of our business. I live in Reading and the cost of travel to and building a team in London is incredibly expensive. Maidenhead’s travel links and reduced competition for talent make it far more commercially attractive location to build a team to help grow our software business.

We needed a central location and with close proximity a the train station as we all travel frequently. Initially we were looking at Regus, but found the rooms to be far too stale and claustrophobic. MyWorkspot was recommended to us, so we went to check it out. We were immediately struck with how welcoming and flexible it was. The environment is perfect for a young company (lots of space and flexible working areas) and the regular networking sessions and lunch and learns add real value. In fact, in the two weeks, we’ve already picked up a new customer!

How do you like your tea or coffee?
I’m boring – so tea with milk please. I’m sick of the pretentious, overpriced coffee in Shoreditch!

MyWorkSpot – Hotdesk Member
Name and Business?
Stephen (Steve) Wells – AIM to Succeed Ltd

What does your business do?
I help people get more of what they want from their business, be it profit, time, work/life balance, less stress, more holidays, more impact (oh I’m a Business Coach, is that what you wanted me to say?) I do this by helping them think differently about what they do, how they do it, what results they think they are getting and dig into what they are really getting so that we can focus on the changes that will get them what they want. www.aimtosucceed.co.uk/
Why MyWorkSpot?
I use MyWorkSpot because it has the right mix of relaxed and professional. I can work in the office in my shorts and walk around in barefoot yet still happily invite prospective or existing clients to meetings either in the co-working area or professional meeting facilities.
It’s also a great place to meet other business, exchange ideas and find possible joint venture opportunities/suppliers for both myself and my clients.
And I would highly recommend the Lunch and Learn sessions which I use to keep up to date with different aspects of business and my own professional development.

How do you like your tea or coffee?
Coffee (Filter, not instant), Black, with a splash of juiced ginger (it’s usually in a water bottle in the fridge) preferably in one of the straight sided mugs (I’m less likely to knock it over)
– Always remember to know and ask for exactly what you want and how you want it, otherwise you may find you settle for what you get given.
