Updating Your Home to Support Relaxation and Remote Work

Updating your home to make it more relaxing while ensuring it’s still a good place for remote work seems challenging initially. That’s especially true if you tend to have an always-on mentality when your workplace is only a few steps away.

However, it’s possible to make your home both a haven and a productive workplace with the right approach. Here are some updates that support relaxation and remote work, courtesy of Robert Ancill at TNI Design.

Create an Inspiring Home Office

Having a distinct work area in your home helps you limit distractions and keep your work organized while maintaining a better work-life balance. Since that’s the case, redecorating a space and turning it into an inspiring home office is a wise move – and it might even be tax deductible!

One easy way to begin is with paint. Specific colors have productivity-boosting benefits, so choose one that creates the right feel in the space. Whether you paint the whole room or focus on a single accent wall is up to you. As long as the hue is visible, it can help.

When it comes to office furniture, make ergonomics a priority so that you remain comfortable and reduce your odds of certain injuries. Invest in desktop and drawer organizers, too, making it easier to keep everything in its proper place. Get a low-maintenance plant to add some life and freshness, and add a family photo to help you make ethical decisions.

Guaranteed Service, Quality, Schedule, and Creativity E112

The Tycoons welcomed Robert Ancill, CEO of TNI Design, to the show. Robert’s story is a true testament to being adaptable to change. One of his favorite quotes is by Richard Branson, “If someone offers you a job, take it and figure it out later.” He likes the challenge of identifying problems and creating solutions. This has become a part of TNI Design’s business model to evaluate their work and collect data to understand if the design truly meets the client’s needs.

TNI Design operates on four mantras: Guaranteed service, Quality, Schedule, and Creativity. By holding to these principles, the TNI team maintains standards while creatively learning, growing, and changing. This is how Robert adapted over the years and how TNI Design came to fruition after splitting the company in 2015. As a standalone design and architect firm, TNI Design provides focus in their core competency areas and continues to deliver consistent results.

Exploring Life & Business with Robert Ancill of TNI Design

Today we’d like to introduce you to Robert Ancill.

Hi Robert, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
TNI Design was originally the interior design department of The Next Idea Restaurant Consultancy, (an International concept development agency specializing in restaurants, hotels and cafes).

Our clients were so impressed with our restaurant designs they would ask us to design their office or home or another building; as such it became a bit weird as we were designing luxury houses yet our online presence was all about restaurants.

In 2015, we launched TNI Design into its own entity and developed the business separately as a Design and Architecture Agency.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Ha ha – it is never a smooth road when starting a business, even as an offshoot of another business. Our challenges range from finding the right team, partners and of course clients.

Covid was of course a struggle as our main client base closed down, and we were forced to pivot our services and address new markets with limited experience.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
Based in Los Angeles, TNI Design [http://www.tnidesign.com] specializes in architecture, interior design and landscape design. Read More

Lifestream video analytics tool

 

Lifestream is a powerful and intuitive video analytics business that provides unique, and never before available, insights for restaurants and food and beverage operations to optimize operations and identify data-based customer behavior analytics.

Lifestream is a highly effective solution for measuring true guest satisfaction, keeping track of speed of service, assessing how staffing levels match customer demand on an hour to hour basis, as well as analyzing new initiatives such as interior design and layout changes.

Customer behaviors that have been notoriously hard to track include the percentage of people who walk in and then out of an establishment without making a purchase, true wait times at drive through restaurants, and real wait times from order time to table delivery. Sampling yields significant research results, however, with the delta that can be present between a sample and the real customer base, sample errors can occur. That is, of course, until now!

Lifestream resolves these problems by providing state-of-the-art video data analysis that captures critical information which has never before been available to restaurants. Lifestream’s AI technology can identify every human that enters a space and subsequently report their behavior in analytic format with absolute accuracy. Questions about missed opportunity, wait times, customer confusion, and dwell times can now all be answered. This provides a substantial advantage in addressing missed sales opportunities in addition to multiple other areas that will improve operations and the bottom line.

Video more than any other data source generates valuable insights based on how people actually behave, not just how they claim to behave. The more authentic the data source, the more valuable the insight. For the first time, restaurants can make deeply informed decisions by harnessing the power of their video and deploying analytics to improve their customer experience, resulting in substantial top and bottom line improvements.

This design was for a Sports Restaurant in the Middle East. The entire design was centered around a stadium look and feel, with its own commentator’s room and different dining and lounging areas.

We Must Be Better Than This

I remember learning in horror about the holocaust when I was growing up. While I was never able to understand the depth of the unimaginable terror, I was even less able to understand how no-one spoke up. Yes, during history’s darkest time, there were many acts of heroism, where individuals put their lives at serious risk to protect other human beings, however, these cases were nothing more than a dot in the abyss of the extreme depths of evil perpetrated during that extraordinary period in time.

Roll on to the events of the past week, where we witness yet another human being murdered for no reason other than the color of his skin. 

Again the polarizing issue of race manifests, although this time outrage sparked into nationwide demonstrations and riots, where, yet again the draconian question of why one race of people is treated differently to another, is being tested to the fullest. Read More
