And she was doing this whilst also in the middle of a refurbishment project of a building they were planning to move to, and many other related projects. As she describes it, "I was in the middle of a massive series of Venn diagrams!".
I interviewed Amanda for this blog several years ago, when we
first worked for her and the set. I remember opening with “Amanda
famous for tearing down walls in Chambers…” One of the first things
she did when she joined in 2009 was to convince Chambers that it was essential to rip down the partitions
separating the different members of the admin team, so that clerks, marketers,
managers and the finance team could all see and hear one another, and work as
one team. Over 10 years later, she has taken this creative approach to
planning workspace in a way that promotes better collaboration to a whole new
level. She’s raising the bar for everyone at the Bar 😉.
The campaign is part of an exciting project 7BR will be announcing in early 2022. Another set that is raising the bar at the Bar, this time in relation to attitudes to accessibility.
