An office should be a place of work - but also one of liveliness, flexibility and fun... with that in mind, let me introduce you to Nala, the latest member of the Branson family.
I’ve learned since I was young that work should never be a daily grind. Whether you’re an employee or an employer, office life should be a place of work - but also one of liveliness, flexibility and fun. A place of work should be somewhere which inspires you, and it should be also be a place where you can be yourself and enjoy. You spend most of your life at work, so as much as it can be a place that brings joy the better. Positive people are more creative and more productive.
My production company Sundog Pictures is an incredibly happy place to work, and the staff work hard but also enjoy the work they create.
It’s an atmosphere that encourages people to push themselves, but also to unwind and have a laugh - the most recent way of doing this is for people to bring in their dogs. I mean what would Sundog be without the dog!
My wife and I recently adopted a seven week old puppy and we named her Nala, from the Lion King (a small obsession of mine!) She’s an absolutely beautiful and sweet natured Golden Retriever… but she does keep me awake for most of the night! I had to sleep on the sofa with the fire door closed and put my fingers in my ears, with two pillows on top, and I could still hear her!
