Mindspace reviews

Michelle Wright, founder and CEO at Cause4, currently works with her team in a Mindspace office. She says:

“This summer, Cause4 moved into new premises – a Mindspace shared office in the heart of the City of London.

“For us, it was more than an office move – it was the end result of an exploration into how our company wants to operate, where we get our inspiration from, and how we think the future is going to unfold.

“Mindspace gives us access to great facilities which are someone else’s responsibility to maintain, as well as a buzzy atmosphere with close neighbours in a variety of other small or mid-sized businesses. And we’re hoping that will it deliver even more than that.

“We need to seek out inspiration to inform our ideas, and look across industries for innovation that can be reworked in our own. To do that, we need to be connected to the wider world.

“Networking opportunities in shared office spaces beat the traditional office environment, which can feel like being in a castle with the drawbridge up.

“We have adopted sharism at Cause4, and to turn that philosophy into an operating reality, our engagement with other businesses and organisations is essential.

“It’s not just about picking everyone else’s brains, although there will be some of that – we’re also scheduling training sessions and workshops with Mindspace members, where we can share what we know to benefit others.

“To turn an idea into an innovation, you need to provide yourself the time and space to explore it further. We’re hoping that our new environment at Mindspace will do just that.

“Businesses are going to be judged more and more on their transparency, on their willingness to share their own insight and reveal the workings of the operation.

“Leaving the castle behind and stepping into a lively marketplace – Mindspace – is just what we need to ensure that we stay connected, stay motivated, and stay innovative.”
