Description

The “which path shall I take?” breakfast

There comes a moment in everyone’s life when they hesitate at a fork in the road.

For Seb Royale, it was what to do next after graduating slap bang in the middle of a recession in 1992. Should he give in to his love of travel and see the world (despite not having the funds), continue with his studies, or get a job?

Seb decided to take the sensible option. He already had a degree in property and, reasoning that property and numbers were a good combination, he took a fast track Accounting Diploma. He also hoped he’d be able to travel with work in future.

His qualifications led to work for an Enterprise Agency in Lanarkshire, helping businesses and developing space for incubation and start ups.

But London was calling. He was born there, had family there and – well, it was London. He set up a new business centre in Smithfield and then worked for Regus before he felt the urge to move again. This time, he decamped to New York for two years.

Once back in London he launched Instant Managed Offices, finding, fitting and running office space for companies. By the time he sold the business for £25m in 2012, he had over 100 employees.

By now, sensible man that he is, he had set up home in Brighton, where he’d always wanted to live. At first he commuted, but he soon saw the light and launched PLATF9RM last year, offering co-working and private office space for individuals and businesses.

So what’s next for PLAF9RM – and does Seb still have itchy feet? Come along to our July breakfast to find out.
