Conversation, cocktails and the future of work

On Tuesday 21st September co-founder of neospace Baroness Mone OBE hosted our inaugural networking event at neo house, Aberdeen. Invited guests, including the Lord Provost, gathered for a drinks and canapes reception in the Lounge before heading to the Think Bigger meeting room where they were welcomed by Lauren Mitchell of Northsound 1 who introduced Carolyn Taylor of International SOS.

Over 60 guests heard Carolyn give a very informative talk on the workplace post covid. Her tips on how employers should approach their staff now that restrictions are being lifted, were well received. Following Carolyn’s talk, Lauren was joined by Baroness Mone OBE for a Q&A session that explored her career to date and touched on how the pandemic was the catalyst for the creation of neospace. They were then joined by neospace co-founders Doug Barrowman and Nick Tat, COO Ian Minor and Design Director Tara Jackson. The panel fielded questions on the future of hybrid working and future workspace requirements.

The evening was rounded off by cocktails in the Juice Bar and the opportunity for guests to tour neospace and share their experience and vision for the future of work.

Special thanks to all involved for making the event such a success and also to our partners for the evening: Val Morrison for supplying the mouth-watering canapes, Jonathan Simpkin from Woodhouse Wines and Scott Rose of Dutch Courage who served Aperol Spritz, Mojito, Negroni and Old Fashioned cocktails and mocktails.

We anticipate this to be the first of many networking events to be held at neospace, demonstrating our commitment to our members and the wider Aberdeen business community.
