The Point of Difference Team

Point of Difference is owned and operated by Andy and Vashti Bedwell. We’re a husband and wife partnership who have worked together for around 20 years and been married a bit longer than that. We share a passion for our business and for living life to the full.

With us it’s personal

Our team - here to support you wherever you are

“Personal” is one of our values so we think it’s important you know who you’re working with. We share a belief in creating the best possible experience for our clients whether it’s Co-working, Serviced Offices or Shared Homes. We share values but love different perspectives and hope you feel the strength of that whoever you’re working with.

Andy

Andy

Co-owner / Director

I love working in property – the mix of great people and great buildings really inspires me.  Over the past few years, I’ve developed a passion for bringing old, under-utilised buildings to life in a way that people engage with.  Before working in property, I worked for large organisations predominantly in Leadership and Change management roles – a fulfilling part of my life but one I’m happy to have left behind.

Outside work, I love skiing, scuba-diving, supporting Sheffield Wednesday and spending time with our two boys Dan and Shaun.

Vashti

Vashti

Co-owner / Director

Having been a stay at home mum for 10 fabulous years I was ready for something new but it had to build on what I loved while I was involved with kids groups, the PTA and being a school governor…….

Relationships is what it’s about –  with our housemates, our clients, our trades, our cleaners.

I love being part of a community and knowing we are making a true difference to peoples lives.

Perch Co-working & all offices

After an early career in retail, I spent 13 years in school business management whilst my children were growing up. I always loved the sense of community and team-work in these roles and I now feel so lucky to be in an environment again at Perch where I am involved in developing a fantastic and dynamic community with inspirational people around me. In any spare moments, I love to travel, read and spend time with my family, whilst persevering at trying to learn Italian…

Perch Co-working

Friends and work colleagues tell me that I’m a ‘people person’ – customer facing positions have always been central to all roles in my career. It’s the buzz of meeting and greeting, being part of a community and connecting with people that I love. Life is busy and I like it that way.

I’m passionate about swimming, taking part in charity events and spending time in the country with our two dogs.  Quality time with family and friends over a few drinks, tasty food and lots of chatter is my idea of a perfect end to a busy week.

Market House

Having moved to Aylesbury 6 years ago and spending 5 years raising my 2 young boys, I was ready to get back to work and started with Market House at the end of 2018, helping with any queries and with the day to day running of the site.  With a background in HR and recruitment, I love to find out what makes people tick!  In my (very rare) spare time, I love to enjoy a few cocktails and catch up with friends.

Lisa-Marie

Guardian House

Helping us stay in front of mind is Lisa-Marie. When she’s not saving us time and money on our marketing, she’s looking after our clients in North Oxfordshire. Lisa-Marie runs her marketing agency, No Fluff Communications from Guardian House in Banbury.

Maintenance

Phil keeps the lights on, the wheels turning and the whole show on the road.  If anything goes wrong in the building, he’s your man and if it hasn’t gone wrong yet then he’s probably had a hand in making sure it hasn’t.
Vicky Leung

Bicester Living

Vicky is the heart and soul of Bicester Living. She connects our housemates, helps put together homes of like-minded people and makes sure any issues are dealt with straight away. Over the years she’s shown herself to be a mean quizmaster, escape-room gatekeeper and expert rabbit keeper. Oh, and she’s pretty good at looking after houses as well

At home, at work, at ease

Co-working, Serviced Offices and Shared Living across Bucks and Oxfordshire

Our team are here to support you across our range of locations in Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire. The centre of our universe is Bicester, which is the home to Perch Co-Working, our Serviced offices and our shared living homes at Bicester Living. We also have serviced offices in Banbury and Aylesbury with more locations to come. Wherever you work with us, you will find high quality, unique buildings which are run with care, passion and and personal touch.

Youth Concern

We’re very fortunate to be providing quality homes and high-spec offices so wanted to do something housing related to help support others who struggled in these areas.  We’re therefore very happy to support Youth Concern who help local young people with counselling, emergency accommodation and support to progress in their lives.

Youth Concern provide a safe place for young people to meet and access support through a drop-in centre and a soon to be opened safe house. We believe in their ethos of helping some of the most vulnerable young people to get on the right track early in their lives before long-term issues arise.
