MOR NEWS!

meet mor (Chris Q) 

MEET MOR is back! The next member we are introducing you to is Chris Quinn, Managing Director of fast-growing marketing agency Marketing in a Box (MiaB).

Chris joined Mor back in August 2017, at the time he was working from home but searching around for office space when he saw a post from Mor online and decided to take a look around. One of the main reasons that he was looking to move away from home working was to find somewhere more social, where he could become part of a working community. Luckily, Mor ticked his boxes!

Chris’s company is now head-quartered out of Mor and works with global business-to-business technology organisations. MiaB helps its customers move faster with high-quality and on-brand marketing copy, design and video content.

We asked Chris if working at Mor has helped him to develop his company, this is what he said;

“Yes definitely, it has had a positive impact on the business. I never realised how much it could have an impact, for example, if I hadn’t come to Mor I wouldn’t have found out about EU funding and advice for high-growth businesses. I also met Craig Blackburn, we began working together after meeting at Mor and now he heads up content for MiaB. One of my favourite things about working at Mor was the doors that it has opened for me, ones that I didn’t even know existed!”

Finally, we asked Chris if he had any advice for people like him that wanted to ditch the kitchen table and move into a co-working environment…

“Go for it, there is no aspect of my working life that hasn’t been positively impacted by coming into a place like this, I have met new people and it has opened new doors that have taken the business to the next level. I would recommend anyone to give it a go!”.

If you‘d like to come and take a look around Mor and see what we have to offer just drop us an email at info@morworkspace.co.uk or call 01637 871244 to arrange a FREE taster day in our co-working space.

meet mor (Abi G)

Welcome to MEET MOR where we will be introducing you to some of our users here at Mor Workspace in Newquay!

To kick things off we caught up with Abigail Gough, Grants and Communications Manager for Sabre Education, a charity based in the UK and Ghana working within southern Ghana to improve the futures of poor and marginalised children. Abi’s role within the organisation is to manage the trusts, foundations and grants, complete funding applications and manage the company communications such as their website, social media pages, newsletters and physical promotional assets.

In June 2019, Abi joined the Mor community after deciding that working from home wasn’t working for her. Dealing with the isolation and poor productivity at home it gave her the drive to find a co-working space that met her needs and allowed her to re-gain focus.

When we asked Abi what is her favourite thing about Mor is, she said;
“The vending machine! Ha I’m just joking. I love that the rooms are light and bright, you have proper office desks with comfy chairs (instead of the kitchen table I used to work at!). Having breakout areas and kitchen facilities is handy, plus there’s the added bonuses of the coffee van and car valeting services!
I know being around people also helps to keep me focused and ensures I have a routine in my working day. There are also lots of social events which I enjoy taking in part in such as kayaking, snorkelling, surfing and doing those things together gives it a real community feel”.

Changing from working at home to going into co-working environment can be a big decision, we asked if she had any advice for people who are thinking of making the move…
“100% do it. It was the best decision I made of 2019 workwise and has been great for my mental health being around other people instead of on my own. The free taster day at Mor was really useful, it gave me a feel to the place and after a short time I was surprised at how much more productive I had become by coming into an office environment without the distractions from home. I think it’s a common misconception that people think co-working will be noisy and distracting but it isn’t as everyone values their time and is here to work”.

If you‘d like to come and take a look around Mor and see what we have to offer just drop us an email at info@morworkspace.co.uk or call 01637 871244 to arrange a FREE taster day in our co-working space.
