Happy 10th Birthday Cubeworks, from the MDHUB!

10 things I’ve learned in 10 years of business By Alex Cowell, Managing Director at Cubeworks

It’s been 10 years since I migrated along the South coast to Brighton and founded Cubeworks, and what a journey it has been.

Inevitably, there have been ups and, of course, there have been downs, but one thing’s for certain, there’s never been a dull moment.

The Cubeworks gang have been asking me today how I feel about it all, 10 years on. Well, in a nutshell, I can honestly say I feel proud; proud to still be going strong in a rapidly-changing global economy, proud to be a good employer in Brighton, proud to have built a great team around me and, most importantly, proud of the work that we do.

Yesterday, I was reflecting on the past decade, and thought to myself: “What’s the main thing I take away from the journey?”. Well, I’d say it’s how little I knew about running a business back in 2002! But on the flip side, it is also the realisation of how much I’ve needed to be open to listening, to learning, and to change, in order to be an effective leader.
