The Ugli Collaborators 2013

The Ugli Collaborators 2013

If you're lucky enough to work in the Ugli building, you'll be well aware of the benefits on offer from working in such a community driven environment. Perhaps the most beneficial, however, is the fact that you're working alongside neighbours and fellow members, who are likely to work in a similar industry or one that could benefit from your expertise. How do you know who these people are though?

Here at Ugli, we're constantly conjuring up ways to help you to get to know your fellow Uglies, with the hope of forging successful business opportunities as ...

The Ugli Xmas Schmoozemas - The Aftermath

The Ugli Xmas Schmoozemas - The Aftermath

Christmas has officially arrived at Ugli and what better way to kick off the festive season than with a good ol' fashioned Christmas Party.

All the usual Christmas cliches were present: cheesy music, silly hats, drinking games and plenty of festive cheer. Spirits were high as guests filtered into The Big Room, which had been transformed into an enchanted forest, something akin to a Tim Burton movie. That is, however, where the gothic chic ended, as Uglies turned up wearing all manner of silly headgear and Christmas jumpers.

The obligatory cheesy Christmas music was the soundtrack to the evening, everything ...

Cut Down On Paper, Not Trees!

Cut Down On Paper, Not Trees!

So as you may be aware, the meeting room is going to be booked online as opposed to the old school paper format on the front of the door.

This will be make your lives much easier and ensures that we're catching up with the 21st century. Apparently the Internet is all the rage these days. It also means that we're cutting down on paper usage and hopefully saving a few trees in the process, considering it's National Tree Week we thought this tied in quite nicely.

Although switching to an entirely paperless office might be a ...

Ugli Presents...A Short Film Showcase

Ugli Presents...A Short Film Showcase

The scene was set - the lights were dimmed, the audience were seated and the technical difficulties were eventually overcome (thanks to  Dave from N3RD for your technical expertise aka hitting a button). The second Ugli Presents... was officially ready to roll.

We always expected the quality of shorts to be high but nothing prepared us for the sheer excellence that was presented by five very talented filmmakers. The future of British filmmaking is in safe hands if these guys and girls continue to make such stunning films.

First up was Sophie Venner with 'Room 8'. This film was part of ...

Ugli - The Blueprint For The Future?

Ugli - The Blueprint For The Future?

West London is fast becoming the capital's hub for business, technology and enterprise. It may lack the glitz and the glamour of East London, however it more than makes up for it with its roster of multinationals and startups alike. With the likes of eBay and Paypal setting up shop in leafy Richmond and L'Oreal and Coca-Cola settling in Hammersmith, businesses are realising the true potential of an area that may have been overlooked in the past. Invaluable links to Gatwick and Heathrow airports provide a fast route for overseas multinationals to access London and the multitude of ...

Explosive Moments at Ugli

Explosive Moments at Ugli

To celebrate Guido Fawkes' unsuccessful attempt to assassinate King James and blow up the Houses of Parliament 400 years ago, we've been asking the Ugli Campus:

"What has been your most explosive moment in business to date?"

Kate @ KDOTonline - "Team Kdot got a phone call recently from someone to whom we had been recommended. It turned out to be the CEO of Virgin Games and a ...

Halloween "BOO"ze Schmooze - The Aftermath

Halloween "BOO"ze Schmooze - The Aftermath

Well well well...what can we say? A huge thank you to everyone that made it to our Halloween "BOO"ze Schmooze last night. From what we can remember, it was a frightfully fun-packed evening with lots of ghoulish antics taking place, although unsurprisingly, there are a few sore heads on Ugli Campus this morning. 

The shenanigans kicked off at 6pm with DJ Funk Daddy Funk manning the wheelz of steel, bumpin' a selection of disco house and 80s funk classics with the odd Halloween tune thrown in for good measure. Think Ghostbusters and Thriller. The walls of The Big ...

The Big Room Round-Up

The Big Room Round-Up

The Big Room has been a hive of activity recently with a range of events catering for the whole Ugli community. Hotminute magazine launched their hip new bi-monthly web show, HMTV, dedicated to London's events and entertainment scene, introducing their presenters, producers and devoted fans. We got stuck in ourselves and can confirm it was a fab event, definitely a highlight, so we'll definitely be popping by when filming for episode two gets underway in November.

Think Tall Films hosted a YouTube Marketing talk as part of the ever-popular Social Media Week. Expert You-tuber, George Aliferis was drafted ...
