Next Date: Friday 27th of January, 8.30am-5.30pm

Hello! Weโ€™d love to invite you to our Coworking Space for Meet the Duck Day ๐Ÿฆ†

Perfect for neurodivergent:

๐Ÿ’ผ Business owners
๐Ÿš€ Freelancers
๐ŸŒณ Remote workers

First, meet Ed the Duck ๐Ÿ‘‰

Ed the duck is the brainchild of NeuDICE, the NeuroDivergent and Inclusive Community of Entrepreneurs. NeuDICE is being co-founded by a small crew of neurodivergent entrepreneurs led by Dr Anne Collis of PinkGold Ltd.

Here’s the idea:

“The computer world has the concept of ‘rubber duck debugging’ and the ADHD world has the concept of ‘body doubling‘. Ed began as the product of Anneโ€™s curiousity: what happens if, instead of talking though a problem, you tell a rubber duck what you are supposed to be doing then sit the rubber duck in your line of sight as you work. 

What if, once a month, we all booked into a co-working space, bringing our ducks to meet each other and tackling whatever tasks weโ€™d been postponing that month โ€“admin, planning for the future, whatever!

NeuDICE and Welsh ICE will be trialling the first Welsh ICE Meet The Duck Day. The idea is that anyone who wants can book themselves into WelshICE and get given a WelshICE rubber duck.

We will be testing:

  • does productivity increase when we meet in a shared space, all knowing that we are there to crack on with jobs we’ve been postponing?
  • does the visual of sitting rubber ducks on our desks help build a sense of belonging to a community?
  • are the provisional rules* working in the way we think they will?

You can also book a 121 with neurodiversity expert, Dr Anne Collis during the Ask the Duck session from 10am – 12pm – Book a Slot

You are also welcome to enjoy the amenities of the space:

๐Ÿ’ป Superfast WiFi
๐Ÿ’บ Flexible seating
๐Ÿ‘‹ A friendly atmosphere
๐Ÿค Networking opportunities
