Felicity LewisFormer Mayor - City of Marion
"Darren is one of the few people who has joined up all the dots from the tenant’s point of view to focus on enabling excellent business, people and cultural outcomes.  It makes so much sense as rental costs as generally only a small fraction of the staffing costs of most businesses today."
David ParkenCEO Australian Institute of Architects
“Darren is not just a strategic thinker in the robust, even routine, sense of the word. He also looks at situations from different, unusual, and sometimes down-right quirky angles. Take his new book, here Darren examines the importance of selecting the right office accommodation for your business and demonstrates how this single choice, so often made in a rush and without consideration, will often determine the extent or likelihood of the business’s success.”
Dr. Chris Daniels PhDProfessor of Urban Ecology, UniSA

Andrew PetersenCEO of Sustainable Business Australia
“Darren has the outrageous ability to challenge broadly-accepted principles in our way of thinking and presenting compelling suggestions as to why we should reconsider some of our established conventions. No less so with his latest publication which questions our pre-conceived ideas about our workspace. In this age of establishing new work ecologies, Darren makes the compelling argument that choosing the right office space makes perfect business sense and provides an opportunity to empower our people to thrive.”
Michael PeschRegional Director NSW, WSP/Parsons Brinckerhoff
