Introduction to Seahaven Coworking Space from Diana Horner, Community Connector.

Work is changing, and more of us are taking the opportunity to organise our lives differently, with more freedom and flexibility. If you are running a business, freelancing, consulting or starting up, working from home is a fantastic option. But if you feel that you could do with more structure, or space, or interaction with different people to chat to you, coworking might be the solution.

Seahaven Coworking Space is open now, why not come and take a look?

Coworking creates opportunity, and has huge benefits for our local community. Get your life back by introducing a bit of work/life separation, and increase your productivity with focused sessions away from the isolation, or the hustle and bustle of home.

I have been working mostly from home for 15 years now with my husband Matt, running an international digital publishing company for the past 7. We manage a virtual team, and it’s been great to be available for the children (and the dogs). Looking for a new challenge, I decided to revive my events company, and at the same time I came across the coworking movement. You can see much more about coworking here.

Matt is in the process of creating a local Basketball club (Seahaven Storm), and we want to explore this as a social enterprise project. The coworking space will be a base for the club, and of course we are really interested to hear about other community projects in the area. Hopefully we can pool resources, ideas and collaborate, there’s great potential for positive change in this area.

If you would like more information about the Seahaven Storm Basketball Club, please email Matt at


In February, I launched a networking group for women called She Can – and we now meet regularly, and have plans for several events to bring women in business, the arts and community together.

Be the Boss is a conference event taking place on June 29th in Brighton. A full day of speakers, workshops and networking for women aged 16-30 yrs who are interested in self employment, starting and growing a business. See


Come and say hello, take a look at the space and have a chat about how you can benefit from coworking here, and what you are interested in contributing. If you have skills and experience, are you interested in mentoring or getting involved in local projects? Our intention is to make this a dynamic, sharing coworking community.

Collaboration is the new competition!
