Flexible working experiment sees Shoreditch businessman working in the air
All eyes were on Caspar Mason who was working at a desk 20ft in the air
Casper Mason always feels elevated at work and takes his job creating marketing strategies seriously.
He rose to the occasion when challenged to spend the day suspended more than 20ft above the street, in an experiment into flexible working.
The high-rising entrepreneur, who runs small market strategy business PD3 in Great Eastern Street, took up the challenge from O2 communications to show it’s possible to work anywhere with the right technology.
“It’s been chilly,” tweeted Caspar as he finished his half day’s work in the winter elements.

O2 picked the area near Old Street’s Silicon Roundabout for the test because it hosts one of the fastest growing business communities in London and is fuelled by small businesses.
