Boxworks for People Like You
We understand that people like to be around people like themselves. So we create inclusive, collaborative communities of like-minded people doing exciting things. We work really hard to bring together the right talent, energy and resources to create an environment in which you feel inspired and are successful, because your workspace should be more than just a place you go to work.

We do things differently.
We insist on our workspaces being in the City centre – so you can walk or cycle or get the bus to them (and your kid’s school, the shops, hairdresser, favourite coffee shop…you get our drift). We are investing mucho Euros in buying an amazing building. So if it looks like a shed on a faceless edge-of-town business park it won’t be one of ours. It’s just not our thing. We tailor the workspace to suit your needs, from co-working, to full-time desks, private offices and board rooms. And to make sure you don’t spend all your time at your desk we wrap them around a lounge area, cool kitchen, shared resources, event space and meeting rooms. We believe you should have fun at work. So we throw in a good dose social events, beers and pizza on a Friday – just to end the week on a high. Because to be productive, you sometimes need time out.

We have chosen to locate in the heart of Waterford City, on Patrick St, Close to all amenities, Parks, and lots of other offices. It’s easy to find, so you clients can call in whenever they are in the City. Lots of regional towns have vibrant entrepreneurial clusters and we’ve proved that many more ambitious businesses will locate in regional towns if inspiring workspaces like us exist.

Biographical Info

I am a Digital Strategist based in RIKON in Waterford Institute of Technology with over 10 years of experience working for startups, web development companies and Ireland’s largest content producer RTÉ. I also 17 years of experience in the radio and media industry. My position in RIKON is focused on helping clients across all sectors exploit the Internet as a route to market and to assist them in developing a strategy that will shape how they do business online.

I provide a range of consultancy services including online channel reviews, customer engagement and internationalisation strategies and I liaise with third party developers to ensure my clients get the maximum return on investment for any design or digital project. My work in RIKON is focused on three main areas; business strategy, mechanisms for customer/client engagement and optimising our client’s digital footprint. At the end of a project my clients will have a detailed, bespoke Digital Strategy, a roadmap including timelines for delivery and support with implementation and training. It’s all about empowering clients by giving them the information and tools they need to increase performance and return on investment across their digital channels.
