Meet Rachel Collinson!

Tell us what you do.

I help nonprofits find new champions, and raise more money or get more petition signatures/volunteer hours from existing ones. This includes clients like Greenpeace, Mind, Citizens Advice, the University of Westminster, Oxfam, Prostate Cancer UK and many others. I do this through training, coaching and consultancy. My main experience is in digital but this now almost always broadens out into other channels.


How has being part of a coworking space made a change to your productivity?

I get twice as much done when I’m here. I’m a people person and even if I’m just sitting next to somebody who’s deep in the zone, headphones on, somehow that gives me energy and happiness. But the conversations you have always end up being important, too – cross-pollination is necessary for diversity. Creativity is the spark that lights my work – without those fresh ideas from different places, I am done for. And then there’s Finn, of course. Getting excited doggy licks and tail wags always make any day instantly better.
What Is your go-to productivity trick?

My bullet journal. After years of being digital, there’s something so refreshing about actually putting pen to paper. Or washi tape to paper. Or stickers to paper, or… you’d better stop me before it becomes apparent how much of a stationery junkie I really am.


What Is the coolest thing you are working on right now (If you can tell us)?

During July and August, I’m taking three nonprofits on a journey to find their next generation of super-supporters. I can’t wait but I’m also a wee bit nervous because this is unexplored territory for all of us.


What Is one work-related accomplishment that you are super proud of?

Recently, it’s getting big banks to agree to pay back hundreds of millions of pounds they ripped off from local councils. That’s the sort of stuff I live for.


What Is the best piece of advice you have ever been given?

Oh, geez… there are so many… the first one that comes to mind, but not necessarily the best, is that as a female consultant you are almost always charging less than your customer is willing to pay. So charge more.


What are your favourite Waltham Forest hot spots?

I’m a newcomer to Waltham Forest, so I haven’t explored enough yet to have a favourite. So far, I have to say that The Coach and Horses is a standout place to eat and drink. And be merry.


Where will you be This Time Next Year?

I might have accidentally got myself elected to the European Parliament (vote Green, people!) but if I don’t then I hope I’ll be at a conference making a speech to a lot of trade union folks about what their future looks like. Because – as with most nonprofits – it’s going to be very different from how it looks now.

Meet William Galinsky!

Processed with VSCO with e3 presetTell us what you do.

I am a theatre-maker and arts producer making new projects through my company GALINSKYWORKS.

How has being part of a coworking space made a change to your productivity?

It gives me somewhere to go and focus and feel part of a community. It can be a little hard not to procrastinate in the spare bedroom

What Is your go-to productivity trick?

I am not sure I have one. I juggle lots of project  – some of them are arts consultancy, others involve me producing/project managing other artists, and then there are the projects I produce and create myself. I have had to learn to be less self critical and trust my first instincts more with work and be open to feedback in developing each next phase of work.

What Is the coolest thing you are working on right now (If you can tell us)?

HARD WORK! is an immersive theatre project I am making with a Kung Fu club in Great Yarmouth which uses a Wing Chun Kung Fu masterclass and mixed reality gaming to bring people of very different moral and political views together to explore what they have in common. I am currently in the writing/development/fundraising stage and hopefully it will premiere Summer 2020. I am also curating artistic programmes for both London Boroughs of Culture.

What Is one work related accomplishment that you are super proud of?

I ran big arts festivals for around a decade and am now doing my very first start up. It feels great to be working on my own just on creative projects after a decade of politics and multiple stakeholders
What Is the best piece of advice you have ever been given?

Believe in yourself. It’s okay to fail – you don’t learn otherwise – but always challenge the ‘cop in the head’
What are your favourite Waltham Forest hot spots?

Wanstead Flats

Where will you be This Time Next Year?

Hopefully developing lots more projects

Stephen also runs 81Lucks, an apparel brand with an interesting twist…here’s some more information…

We’ve all been there, overhearing someone say Mosheeno, Hermez, Gevinchee or realising you’ve been saying Loewe as Low or Loway or Lowee and certainly not Loweveh…

After many years in the luxury industry enjoying how certain brands were often miss-pronounced Stephen Humphries, Creative Director and Co-Founder at 81Agency, decided to put the record straight whilst having a bit of fun at the same time.

Originally @81lucks was simply a playful Instagram channel but after getting lots of love from fashion fans and luxury lovers out there he decided to turn it into the apparel brand it is today.

They have a classic early 90s minimal style and currently specialise in tees & sweatshirts with each brands’ logo in a signature black or multi-colour edition.

To help spread the good word and get everyone #talkinglucks, 81Lucks is offering the TTNY community a 20% shop discount with the code: BELUCKY20 to use on
