This looks great. I spend a lot of time trying to work out ways to work with people like this. Kind of like Iain's post about making a place where cool creative people want to hang out.
Creating the Place
And now for the big one: creating the place where the cool guys come to hang out and do whatever it is they do.
I don’t think this is about environment it’s about a culture of possibilities and the other people they’re going to have as company/inspiration. And paying people properly - if you want to attract the best people you’re going to have to shell out. As someone in the BBC4 show quoted, CDP knew that if they paid peanuts they’d get monkeys.
In the 60s it was the best artists, writers, film-makers and suchlike who were the people you wanted in your gang. But who are the people you’d want nowadays?
I'd want a couple of these. Oh, and a planner, please Iain. Just one... :-)
