Lisa Raynes Pride Road Founder & CEO and Stephen Drew, recruiter & brains behind Architecture Social chat about taking your next career step
The second in a series of topics looking at how the pandemic has affected architects and the architecture profession. This time host Lisa Raynes and her guest Stephen Drew, recruiter extraordinaire, will be chatting about the opportunities they see for architects in the pandemic economy.
The world has changed, and many architects are looking for, or having to look for something different – during this podcast you can take some time to think through your options. Hear about how Pride Road quickly pivoted their services online and continued almost without interruption to provide design options for their clients. And about Architecture Social, Stephen’s lockdown project that is making waves among architects.
Pride Road Franchise grew out of Founder Lisa Raynes’ refusal to accept that there was only one way for a woman to have an architecture career and a family life. She built her practice in the domestic sector, and then invested to turn her business into one that other ambitious architects wanting work/life balance can buy into. She’s had a seat on the RIBA Council (2015-18), been Chair of Women in Property NW and founded Manchester Curious, an urban architecture outreach festival. Lisa is passionate about sharing her innovations in practising architecture – she wants all architects to understand the value of having a franchise business.
