Award winning PLATF9RM is Brighton & Hove’s largest independent coworking community of businesses and creative entrepreneurs, known for its lively and collaborative culture.
We’re an ambitious, creative and socially driven organisation that is actively investing in Brighton and Hove – a city close to my heart. We first opened our doors in November 2016 and we’ve grown from 6,000sqft and zero members to 35,000sqft and 1000 members since then.
Having owned and run businesses of my own in the past, I’ve been able to build an on- and offline brand that resonates perfectly with our audience, and curate a member experience to match. As part of the PLATF9RM team, I’m proud to have shaped a community and culture where people feel valued, connected, and can actively advance their careers.
Since the beginning I’ve been directing PLATF9RM’s voice, developing ideas for our events programme, and driving the brand’s creative direction, from imagery and videography to social and communications.
During 2017-2019 I headed up our operational team of talented individuals & was also hugely involved in the build and opening of the Ground Floor of Hove Town Hall, and our first cafe-bar, the Grounds.
Working for such a young brand has presented some true career highlights. In 2018, in collaboration with fantastic local design agency Studio Makgill, I delivered the Make Work Wonderful brand. My knowledge of our demographic, members and the latest industry trends proved invaluable during the process.
