Samantha Dean is Missing Link’s Managing Director and one of several people who went without sleep and fought with contractors on a daily basis in order to bring this incredible project to fruition. “Richard (our CEO) is the biggest kid we have, so a fireman’s pole and slide were TOP of the list of HAVE to haves. Our space is very much a mesh of a lot of ideas from a bunch of people over time,” she said.
The 1,250 square feet office in Fourways also features a bath converted into a table, a faux camper van concession space, and the work of Graffiti master Nic Hooper of Shakewell, all of which reflect a refreshing take on the ideal work environment. Samantha said, “I think the biggest thing for me is that we are proof that you don’t need to work in a gray walled cubical farm to be productive. And we’re not a bunch of crazy ‘creatives’ – we make presentations for banks (amongst others).” She added, “You spend 66% of your life at work (and us often more so)– why not make it as much fun as possible?” We couldn’t agree more.
