Congratulations Marianne & Alistair! Legalite NABs the prize for the SECOND year running.

Legalite Australia has won best law firm for the second year in a row in NAB Professional Services Awards! Judged by client feedback, the Professional Services Awards showcase the best small to medium professional services firms in Australia.

You can inspire a generation. Just #giveonehour of your time.

Together, we are inspiring young people to find their purpose and have the courage to follow their passion. How? Through people like you, who #giveonehour of their time to share their story.

84% of young people are not pursuing their passions.

They are pushing ‘passion’ to the side when it comes to their career. Low confidence, a lack of guidance and not knowing where to start are some of the issues our young people face.

Many end up choosing a career they don’t want, because they don’t believe they can do what they love.

We’re not OK with that. We’re pretty sure you’re not OK with that either. So, let’s change it.

Let’s show the next generation that they can pursue their passions – and thrive.

Let’s show them real stories from real people like you. Let’s show them that they can achieve personal and professional success. Through living their passion and finding their purpose and exploring different careers.

We want to make inspiration accessible for every student and every place of education across the globe, not just those that can afford it.

Every student deserves the right to get access to amazing people to help inspire them to find their career path.

Together, we can inspire more people to follow their curiosity. Help them unlock their potential and create a stronger, more meaningful, more purpose driven future.

With your help, Ambisie will make this change happen.

How it works.

Step 1 – Get involved

As an individual, group or company, you can #giveonehour to share your story with young people in schools, colleges and universities. When you sign up, you can invite others to join the community. You list what type of story they would like to share along with their skills.

Step 2 – Choose your impact goal

As each person joins the community, we ask that they set an impact goal, to give you something to strive for. Start small or go big, no matter the goal, one hour can make an impact that lasts a lifetime.

Step 3 – Be found and give one hour

Educators can then search for the right people to share their story with their students. From inspirational journeys to career-specific themes. Your time makes it possible for students to explore their curiosity and find their purpose.

Step 4 – Share your impact

Share your impact and invite others to join the movement. Every time you or someone you have invited to Ambisie, gives one hour we track the impact made by creating your very dashboard. Ambisie is a meaningful way to do good.

DogShare

Dogshare allows dog lovers to easily ask for and offer a ‘hand’ with dog walking & minding. We do this by building connected communities of locals and pairing them together based on similar attributes & requirements.
If I could be invisible for a day I would sneak into parliament and see what goes down when they are about to knife a PM (you know, because it’s a regular occurrence now), the drama would have me so entertained.

Ben Campain

Tapsquire

After 10+ years as a touring musician dealing with a lack of stability, ridiculous hours, constant hustle and challenge upon challenge I walked 850kms across Spain and decided I wanted to take a more secure path in life. So then I went and began my own start up...
I'm Ben and I'm pretty damn excited to have been selected in ``Pitch for a Spot`` to join the Cubes community and continue the journey of Tapsquire out of Hawthorn.
Since the start of 2018 I have worked closely with my dad to build the foundations of Tapsquire. We focused on a simple pain point, anxiously shuffling through your wallet to find the tap card you need sucks. In a world where seconds matter and convenience is king, we've gone and created a stylish leather wallet where in one click, out pops the exact card you need to tap, MYKI, Tap n Go, Cubes entry, we’ve got you covered. We’re currently hustling our way towards launching our socials and dropping our crowdfunding campaign. Watch this space!
Look forward to bumping into many of you over the next 12 months and sharing some lol's over a chilled glass or two of sparkling water on Tap.
Feel free to jump in early and follow the journey (with our other 1 follower on Instagram) @tapsquire or you can get me by email at [email protected]

Adam Valastro

Travelling Tradies

Travelling Tradies creates long term opportunities for skilled tradies to travel affordably so they can have an epic adventure, improve their health & well-being and become a global local.
We do this by introducing Aussie Tradies to Hostels from around the world where they exchange their skills a few hours a day for food & accommodation.
After working in construction for nearly a decade, Adam Valastro (Founder and Qualified Plumber) did exactly this, travelling for nearly 3 years to 11 countries and spent less than $12,000.
Team consists of 8 other members that range from tech dev, videography, marketing and business analysts and all are internationals that believe in the vision and possibilities of TT and its impact it can have in the Australian construction industry as well as the helping build sustainable cities and communities around the globe.

Tom Bell

Tomorrow Man

Tomorrow Man is a social enterprise on a mission to challenge the current male stereotypes and shape a new and positive version of masculinity for the men of today and tomorrow. We run workshops Australia wide with men of all ages and backgrounds, questioning the current man code and starting a conversation about the rules around masculinity that currently serve us and those that don’t.
Our aim is to help men build their emotional muscle and talk with gravity about the challenges they face in their lives as well as being able to support their mates when they’re up against it. We help men create more meaningful connections with those closest to them, ultimately living healthier and happier lives.
Fun fact - Out of our little team of 10, half of our crew are named Tom - wtf?? So, when in doubt just say ``hey Tom``

Daniel Shandler

ELEPHANT ED

Elephant Ed send young, passionate presenters to facilitate inclusive, progressive and dynamic sex education workshops to high school students across Victoria.
Most people tend to cringe at the memory of their middle-aged PE teacher standing at the front of the class with a palpable sense of awkwardness.
For far too long, sex education has been outdated. So we're here to change the game.
Why do we do what we do?
Simply, sex education is more than just putting a condom onto a banana.

Lachlan Kent

Prevention United

Mental health conditions are not inevitable. Prevention United is a new charity that aims to change Australia's approach to mental health by focusing more on prevention, rather than waiting for people to become unwell.
Nearly half of all Australians will experience a diagnosable mental health condition in their lifetime, but we think that is too high. As well as good treatments, there are steps we can take to improve individual and collective mental wellbeing that would lower people's chances of developing a condition.
We already do it for physical health. The Heart Foundation encourages a low-fat, low-salt diet plus regular exercise to prevent heart disease while, at the very same time, heart surgeons perform lifesaving operations.
We can and must do the same for mental health and Prevention United aims to become that catalyst for change wherever prevention takes place. Luckily, prevention can happen anywhere - even at work!
As such, Prevention United directors Steve and Lachlan are hugely grateful to CreativeCubes.Co and MYOB for sponsoring their residence at East Richmond. Their generosity will help further the cause and help us reduce the rates of mental ill-health across Australia.
A fun fact about Steve and Lachlan is that both were bass players back in the day - Steve in a wedding band and Lachlan in a garage punk band. Nerds by day, musicians by night! Well, once upon a time, anyway...

Jessica Mendez

The Therapist Co.

My name is Jessica Mendez/Goldenberg (married name- never know which one to use) I am an animal lover and a proud mother to two fur baby French Bulldogs called Boris and Jasmine.
My passions include dancing (salsa, bachata etc), animal rescues, start ups and networking.
My start up is called The Therapist Co. We are a niche temping platform for the beauty industry. We connect clinics in need with therapists ready to work and essentially are supporting the beauty and medical aesthetic industry here in Melbourne with short term staffing solutions. We plan to scale nationally for 2019 and internationally from there.
Completely loving my time here at CreativeCubes meeting and working with some awesome people!

TEAM SPOTLIGHT: SIMPLE FOODS

Introducing Simple Foods latest venture supported by Chemist Warehouse, The Natural Vitamin Co.

The range is 100 per cent natural and made from organic fruits and vegetables – a unique proposition that really stood out for us. We currently don’t have anything like it in our stores. We are believers in the simplicity of the natural ingredients and the purity of their formulas.

Jack GanceCo-Founder & CEO of Chemist Warehouse

Thanks to the support of Chemist Warehouse, we are pleased to be offering the Australian public a natural alternative to their current vitamins. We are going back to basics with the approach that food is medicine, by offering natural vitamins made from organic fruit and vegetables. A completely natural vitamin has not been accessible to the Australian public to date, and I am privileged to be leading the charge.

What does the future hold for Planet Earth?

Good question! Truth be told, we’re not exactly sure, but REAL BIG THINGS have assembled five very smart people who’ve got some clues.

These fab five are bringing their thoughts and soapboxes to Real Big Things #24 on Friday 23rd November, which also happens to be their last event for 2018.

Come along to look at things like: the ubiquitous daily ritual that’s doing more damage to our environment than cars, the challenges and opportunities of getting people to take action in a digital world, and the pressure of saving our planet one species at a time.

The question on everyone’s lips is whether we’re all doomed or whether everything’s going to work out just fine…

Let’s all find out with a complimentary coffee in one hand and a pastry in the other at the Astor Theatre in a few weeks. Talking starts at 8am and finishes at 10am.

I've had the pleasure of working at Creative Cubes since it opened, and what I've loved most is that it isn't just desk space. Working here feels like being part of something. Every day you're surrounded by people pursuing their own endeavours, but doing it side by side in a community. The space itself is so well thought out and aesthetically pleasing, but beyond the beauty on the surface there is a depth here. The members are fantastic, the founders are involved and accessible, and the 'Happiness Team' provides a quality of customer service like no other co-working space I've been to. AND, it's pet friendly!

The 'Happiness Team' is what makes this co-working space stand out for me. I've worked out of several co-working spaces across Australia, Singapore & San Francisco. The customer experience at Creative Cubes is the best I've come across. For example, a happiness team member will physically walk to my desk to let me know when a guest has arrived, because they know I'm not always going to see the email notification. Sometimes they even buy me time if I'm running late! Brilliant.

The team at cubes are amazing and the space is modern and funky. They have a great mix of different businesses working in the space so the vibe is top notch as well. Would definitely recommend going down and taking a look for your office space or next event!
