I'm trying to get my walkman to work, I don't know why... Oh hang on a minute, Alex, I've just got a call coming in on my Nokia. Yea hi, I'm just doing Workstyle Freestyle. Ok, I'll give you a shout later, ok cheers. Hold that thought, fax coming in. Fax coming in! Bare with. Just give me five minutes, it'll just come through... We'll be able to communicate, eventually, when that comes through - I'll see what you wanted to say. Hello everyone and welcome to Workstyle Freestyle with me, Alex Hirst. And me, Lizzie Penny, playing with old tech! I love it! So today we are talking about new tech. And specifically... Nice t-shirt, Alex! Oh yea, thanks, glad you noticed part of the piloted merchandise range for Hoxby Collective. Is that because you can work where you like because of new tech? Yea, I can. And more specifically, I can work where I like because of Slack. Which we obviously use every day, but some people may not have heard of. But has replaced email for Hoxby - it's a way more effective way to have day-to-day messaging conversations, It enables, particularly when you have lots of people who are geographically dispersed, for everybody to come together and have a chat, to talk around different subject areas, and work generally in more of asynchronous, agile way, and it's obviously there for the future. It also enables workstyles, which is what Hoxby is all about. It doesn't matter where or when you're working, there will be someone on Slack, and it means you can check in and you haven't missed anything. But I think the thing that is most important is for anyone who is working on Slack or who has recently joined Hoxby, you must turn off your notifications! Turn them off for the whole of Slack, and you can always turn them back on for the channels you want alerts for. But that is absolutely critical to do that. If you do that, Slack's an incredible tool and we think it's the future of work. We don't use email internally at Hoxby at all. It's against the rules, so that's why we love Slack! See you next time! We've been Workstyle Freestyle, see you next week. Bye!
