On Friday 3rd May Kirsty Williams AM visited “Like Work But Different” for the first of their Friday drop-in sessions.
“Like Work But Different” is a unique set of meeting spaces situated in the heart of the Black Mountains, in the Brecon Beacons National Park. It aims to make use of the great outdoors to create a working environment that allows people to think, write, create, dream and be refreshed.
The environmentally friendly centre provides office, co-working, training and conference spaces. With a range of facilities, the whole venue can be booked for team meetings, away days or training events, or individuals can work in comfort on their own projects.
On the first Friday of every month they open their doors to guests who want to come and experience what they have to offer. Local workers, businesses and entrepreneurs are all invited.
Jackie Mitchell, CEO of Black Mountains Green Hub explains:
“Our architect-designed office was converted from an agricultural building, and provides co-working, training and conference spaces. The whole site is carbon negative - using electricity generated on-site through hydroelectric and solar PV installations, plus renewable source heating. And when you aren’t inside there are benches and tables scattered around our 45 acres of mountainside.
“The whole venue can be booked for team meetings, away days or training events, or individuals can work in comfort on their own projects.
“We are delighted that one of our first visitors was Kirsty Williams.”
Kirsty Williams, Welsh Liberal Democrat Assembly Member for Brecon and Radnorshire, said:
“It goes without saying that Brecon and Radnorshire has beautiful scenery that we need to make the most of it.
“This type of initiative is an excellent example of a repurposed use of our beautiful countryside, with strong green credentials.
“I really enjoyed seeing the facilities and everything that “Like Work But Different” can offer and I would encourage people to consider how its facilities could benefit them.”
