Tell us what you do.

Manning’s improves the life chances of all students studying in London.

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

Before joining a co-working space I (like most) worked from home.  While this initially sounds like the dream life, it’s in fact ruthlessly difficult to maintain focus and commitment, not to mention switching into work mentality after a relaxed breakfast.  A co-working space changes all of this, allowing a dedicated space sanctioned only for work.

What Is your go-to productivity trick?

• Focus on one task at a time.  Everyone’s way worse at multitasking than they think they are.

• Organising my to-do-list in Trello, only ever adding new tasks to tomorrow’s list (not today’s)

• Pomodoros

• Inbox when ready

• Exercise

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

Manning’s Horizons.  A combined ski and education trip for disadvantaged London pupils.

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

Providing free tuition to those affected by Grenfell

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

Never offer a discount.  You’ll never get it back… instead, give some form of ‘added-value’

What are your favourite Waltham Forest hot spots?

Francis Road


Hollow Ponds

Walthamstow Marshes

Queen Elizabeth’s Hunting Lodge

Where will you be This Time Next Year?

Stronger. Smarter. Sharper
