Leaves they fall and leaves they brown...

Hey! Welcome to the October/November edition of PLATF9RM ’s Press.

What a month it’s been! We’ve had such a great time opening Hove Town Hall and meeting our new members. If it’s your first day/week/month please do NOT be shy about talking to us. We genuinely love hearing what makes our members tick. We might even give you cake.

Here's what happened at PLATF9RM this month...

HOVE WAS ALL AROUND

Our free co-working week saw over 70 people come in and try the space. We’re really proud of it and were so happy (also: relieved) to see people reacting positively. If you STILL haven’t checked Hove Town Hall out, please book a trial here.


TEDxBRIGHTON

During October, Toby Moore, local businessman and curator of TEDxBrighton, gave a talk about curating such an event in our event space on Floor 5 of Tower Point.

Members of our team were lucky enough to attend the main event at Brighton Dome, a particular highlight of the day was Jake Tyler’s, Black Dog Walks. Read all about local boy Jake’s adventures here, where he documents via social media the positive effects of exercise on mental health.

Ellie Ledden brought her insanely good Forgotten Cuts street food to both PLATF9RM locations this month. That woman does incredible things with off-cuts, and both meat and vegan dishes sold out. From now on, she’ll be at Tower Point every Wednesday and Hove Town Hall every last Wednesday of the month.


SPOOKTACULAR SOCIAL WAS WELL SPOOKY

We had a great turn-out for the Social, with everyone bloody-ing up for the occasion. Dry ice drinks were a hit as was the pumpkin carving, showing once again that PLATF9RM members go nuts for crafts when they’re a few drinks deep. Check out the photos on Facebook. Check out our photo booth photos too.

Here's what we have coming up in November....

Any successful business lives or dies by the people it employs and the team it builds.

We spend so much of our professional life at work it’s crucial that, as early-stage business owners, we not only find ways to create a productive and inspiring environment but also nurture and develop our teams so they blossom and remain loyal.
