It started a decade ago as a conversation.
Our families had finished a shared lunch and Tim and I were washing dishes by the kitchen sink. As usual, we found ourselves talking about work — the meaning of work, the way we work, and the value of making space.
With our hands in soapsuds, we talked about distraction. We talked about hyperactivity. We expressed our frustration at seeing colleagues struggle unnecessarily in work and life. And we knew we could do something about this.
So we asked our wives if they would support us in starting a business. They said yes (but insisted we finish the dishes first.)
Our passion is to help busy people make space in the digital age.
We run practical training courses to help individuals and teams improve their productivity — mastering email, organising todo lists, and achieving priorities.
We coach individuals and groups in personal transformation, one habit change at a time.
We speak at conferences about digital technology and the benefits of unplugging as a habit.
We also have a book: “Spacemaker: how to unplug, unwind and think clearly in the digital age” to help people think differently about their relationship with the online world, to live a happier, healthier and more meaningful life.
