An independent workplace consultancy-offering 30 years of experience aligning  workplaces with business strategy. Established in 2018 by Peter Black.

With mobile technology people no longer need to come to “work” to work. This has fundamentally changed the nature of workplaces. The new workplace is an expression of an organisations culture, business strategy and unique ways of working. It’s a place where people collaborate, connect, create, grow, have fun and want to be.

COVID-19 has been a major disruption to the way we use workplaces. What does the post lock down workplace look like, now that we have all experienced flexible working? Stay safe and..Let us help you re-imagine your workplace.
