As FSG goes into voluntary admin, I reflect on the organisations not so public caring ventures, and just how amazingly supportive, comfortable and unique the environment was to work in. Here I reflect on my time at club orange, a club that among other things gave small businesses and entrepreneurs a hot desk.I first became a Club Orange member at FSG in 2016 to create web apps, websites and mobile apps among other successful businessmen. What attracted me to the place was the caring and acceptance of all people as they are. The place had a good feel to it. In recent times, even though the place had gone into voluntary administration, I’ve witnessed the ongoing care for people with special needs and the amazing staff morale. These guys genuinely love the guys they care for.
During my time at FSG I had a number of dreams fulfilled. One was to be a fly in the wall in a room full of female-only workers – what does this intelligent species talk about when no men are around? What makes them tick? Due to air conditioning issues one end of the building, I relocated to a room with no male presence other than my own and up to ten ladies. What did I learn from this experience? From a cross-section of approximately 6 female staff, I observed:
1. Women are highly intelligent on an emotional level.
2. Female friends appear to be almost telepathic.
3. Whereas I’m flat out typing a response to an email and answering a question without going into cerebral overload, most of these guys can do at least two things at once with ease.
This is my experience only. And it was fun.
One of those ladies happened to be a psychic medium. I learned not to discount anything, and that everything happens for a reason.
I will miss the channel 9 reports, the outbreak of singing and acting, the cheeky questions and smiles, the genuine care these guys have for one another.
Thank you, beautiful friends of FSG, and I wish you well moving forward. I am grateful to have worked amongst some truly amazing people.
