You already know where you want to be – it’s now about working smarter.

It’s the most exciting time to be working, self-employed, in a career-transition or side hustlin’.

Working remotely presents a freedom which can feed our wanderlust while also earning.

Unlike the days when I started, when it was work, save, travel, return… sometimes to the drudgery and dread of a modern day dungeon (the humble cubicle). Not so any more.

We now have the freedom to choose where we work. And who with.

I founded Saltwater after taking my job with me, and not wanting to be alone in an apartment. And a lot of research into ergonomic chairs, indoor plants and office feng shui. I’ve been involved in community events since I can recall. The Art of Gathering inspires me – and making conscious choices to the time we have – be it alone to focus, or in company, making meaningful connections. Everything we do is so you can get out and seize the opportunities in front of you.

With Saltwater, we’ve created a place to connect and deliver a diverse, growing portfolio of business and community projects.

We started in 2017, and have been running a series of high-profile, award winning events – among them, for sustainability. We have a long-term approach, and models using co-creation and design thinking. We love what we do – and love working with people who are enthusiastic about destinations – whether it’s their own, or the one they want to go to. Get in touch to learn how we can work together.

We’re on break from December 2023 for the foreseeable future.
