Well since last month lots has been going on! We ended up in a 2nd lockdown which is now coming to an end. With it brings a new tier system but the chance of time with some family at Christmas.
Unfortunately our cafe had to close due to lockdown and will plan to reopen if we are put into tier 2 or once we are.
It is 2 years now though since we started the ground floor refurbishment and added the beautiful cafe and co-working space. Thought I’d share some before and after pictures with you all. It was a massive change!
During the refurbishment we added some amazing acoustic panelled booths and over the last few months they have been being used to record an audio book. Jay Allen is a 2 x Global Entrepreneur ‘Big Impact to Business’ Award Winning Business SCALE Mentor, listed on the UK ‘Clear Business Thinking’ POWER 100 as the Ethical Coach.
Following on from the success of his first 2 business books: Battlefield2Boardroom and Road2Utopia, Jay is a regular user of the ‘sound booth’ within The Outset, in which he is recording the audio version of book 3: #ADDAZERO – The ultimate Guide to Sustainable SCALE. With his publishers now pushing him hard for a pre-Christmas publication of the physical book, he is working hard to ensure the audio version is available shortly afterwards for those who prefer to listen rather than read.
Jay has also taken to using the rooms to record his fortnightly business podcast of the same name #ADDAZERO in which he shares much on how to amend our thinking from growth to scale, and the relevant considerations we need to have in order to achieve significant and sustainable scale.
Further details and pre-orders of the physical book can be made by visiting his website: www.mytruenorth.biz/addazero-the-book/ or he can regularly be found in The Outset on Wednesday afternoon’s from 2.30pm onwards.
