Our story

The Workspace Connection was founded by Nina Fountain, a leading Workplace Strategist and recognised expert in flexible modern workplaces. 

Nina pioneered flexible workplace thinking in Australia and New Zealand – her published guidance on flexible workplace systems was adopted by both the Australian and NZ governments. Nina also led the strategy and implementation unit that doubled the number of people working from home in Australia.

Nina worked first as a health scientist, utilising her Honours degree in Communication Sciences. She then moved on to leadership in the Australian Public Services before establishing The Workspace Connection. 

Nina and The Workspace Connection team now lead and advise senior workplace leaders on the workplace model that will best suit their business. They also align employees and their staff with the new workplace model.

Clients of The Workspace Connection are mainly medium-to-large employers in the private sector.

Nina and her team want to create the conditions for great work. They are motivated by the power of workplaces to bring out peoples’ best.

Our approach is strategic, business-aware and human-centred

Conversations on the podcast are wide-ranging, covering all the areas that contribute to workplace making – ways of working, workspace design, transformation, technology, human-centred design, program and project management and the future of the office.
