Budding entrepreneur Tom Lonsdale and partner Holly Hunt have got the work-life balance just right after moving into one of our amazing studios.

Tom, aged 21, launched his new security business last year and has found that our café doubles as the perfect office space for a small start-up enterprise.

Lonsdale Security provides SIA qualified staff for door supervision, close protection, dog handling and alarm response for events, businesses and individuals across the country.

Tom said: “It really is the perfect combination here at The Studios24. Holly and I have got a great room and it’s just a short walk down to the café, which we are using as our office. All I have to do is get my laptop out and we’re off.  I’m able to do meetings and interviews here, and I’m planning to stage training courses in this space too. It’s brilliant.”

Tom launched Lonsdale Security after working in security at festivals. Holly, who works in events at the NEC, provides him with business support as his PA.

He said: “I was in the army for two years but wanted to have my own business so it was great when I was able to achieve that ambition. Things are going really well. We’ve got regular work with some great clients and we’re hoping to provide security for pubs and film sets.”

He added: ““The Studios24 is a great place to live and work. The facilities are first class and I like everything to be clean and tidy - the housekeeping team here is really good. Holly told me about this place and, once I realised that the bill included everything, I thought it was really great value.” 

Many other residents find that the café, which has high-speed internet connection, provides the perfect environment to work in with plenty of work space and access to a selection of drinks and snacks.
