Lydia Anastasi: Business development

The Office Freedom family is growing and today we’re welcoming Lydia Anastasi to the Business Development Team. We sat down with Lydia to find out more.

What are your hobbies and interests?

I love trying out new restaurants in London, there’s so much choice – especially in Soho! I’m addicted to Asian food – give me some Japanese food or dim sum and I’ll be a happy girl. I also love reading, I set myself a goal to get through two books a month. It’s amazing how much knowledge you can build up over a year just by spending 20 minutes a day reading or listening to an audio.

What is one interesting fact about you?

I can speak 2 languages – English and Italian.

What is your career background?

I have worked in property for the last 4 years. Prior to this, I worked for a commercial agent based in Shoreditch. The flexible office market is such an exciting industry to work in, it moves so fast where no two days are the same!

If you could live in any country in the world, which would it be and why?

New York or London – they both have an amazing buzz, and everyone is hustling! New York is like London on steroids haha.

Why did you choose Office Freedom?

Office Freedom lives and breathes flexible office space - they put the client first in everything and are experts when it comes to negotiating. Being the first company to recognise the demand for flexible workspace, the relationships they have formed, and knowledge of the market are second to none. Richard leads from the front and has built an incredible business with a great culture. I’m excited to be part of the team!

What are you looking forward to most in your new role?

Forming new client relationships and helping them in the next phase of their business. Office moves are such an exciting time for businesses and its great having such a key role in it all.
