How to Survive a London Tube Strike

How to Survive a London Tube Strike

When you live and work in London, even if you're visiting for the day, it can feel like your world is turned upside down when the underground services come to a screeching halt.

Whether it's a tube strike, a fault, line maintenance, or even an unfortunate incident involving wet cement, there are more than a few reasons why London's #1 transport system might hit a red light. The recent strikes are an all-too-painful reminder of what happens when much of the system is out of action, leading to chaos at stations and platforms all over the city.

Putting the UX-Factor into Your Website

Putting the UX-Factor into Your Website

In today's web-savvy age, it seems there's an acronym for everything. From SEO and SEM to HTML and PPC, it's challenging enough keeping up with the latest web trends without tackling the lingo too.

And where did UX spring from?

For business owners who aren't particularly tech-savvy, you've probably managed to pick up on a few acronyms by now - particularly important marketing tools like SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) and PPC (Pay Per Click). Others, such as UX (User Experience), might not be so immediately obvious.

5 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About Landmark's Locations

There's plenty to love about London. The history, the culture, the pizzazz, the shops (oh, the shops!), the museums, the nightlife, and the general clout of having a London address on your business card.

What is a Virtual Office, Anyway?

If you're not familiar with the virtual office concept, it's understandable if it all sounds a little... odd. After all, office buildings are bricks and mortar - surely you can't get much more physical than that. So how does an office become virtual?

It's got nothing to do with 3D projections or computerised buildings. Instead, think of a virtual office as the ultimate flexibility, where you only need to use the bricks and mortar when it suits you.

Why London is the No.1 Place to Do Business

Why London is the No.1 Place to Do Business

At Landmark Plc, we've called London home for over 13 years.

It all started back in 2000 in The City, and since then our portfolio has grown steadily, with each new venue primed and picked for its location, prestige and personality. Our most recent addition is in Mayfair, at the superb 48 Dover Street, and it's set to be the first of a new West End group of Landmark properties.

So it's fair to say that we're committed to the capital. But why London?

Have You Ever Had a Meeting Like THIS?

Have You Ever Had a Meeting Like THIS?

Will Rogers hit the nail squarely on the head when he said: "You never get a second chance to make a good first impression."

Let's face it, if you're working on a lucrative new contract and you've managed to bag a meeting with The Big Cheese, you'd be crackers to invite them to a sub-standard place with microwaved nibbles and a wobbly whiteboard. When you're trying to reflect an air of established professionalism, it doesn't really cut it.

5 reasons Landmark loves... The West End

There's so much to love about London. The arts, the underground, the lost stations, the Olympics, the start-up scene, the Royals, the shopping, and the fact that businesses can now have a ".london" website address.

And of course, Boris Johnson.

It goes without saying that Landmark loves London. Over the past 13 years we've created a network of six business hubs in the heart of this very special city and we've been supporting businesses of all sizes, right across the corporate spectrum, ever since.

How to Prepare for the Christmas Workation

Working at Christmas

How to Prepare for the Christmas Workation

It seems Santa isn't the only one working hard this Christmas.

One survey suggests that last year, at least one-third of UK 'workationers' logged-in over the festive break to catch up on emails and churn through their to-do list. And with remote connections becoming ever-more accessible, those figures are only set to rise - so expect a sleigh-load more to be logging in and slogging away this Christmas, too.
