How to Host Events that Build your Business

By | Coworking | No Comments

We all remember the voice that came to Kevin Costner in Field of Dreams, whispering: “If you build it, they will come.” While this made for a memorable Hollywood catchphrase, the same doesn’t ring true for business. Even if you have the best product or service on the market, it makes no difference if your target audience doesn’t even know it exists. Additionally, operating in a silo-like environment is not a great recipe for small business success, either. Collaboration and…

By | Coworking | No Comments

Congratulations, you have started on the path to creating your own small business or start-up. Taking the first few steps is a liberating feeling, not to mention being in control of your own business and projects (and not tied to the schedules and goals of a parent company). However, one of the first decisions you will need to make is where to base your business in the first place. For decades, the done thing has been to buy or lease…

Hot Desking and Collaboration: The Value of Networking in the Modern Workplace

By | Coworking | No Comments

[row] [col span__sm=”12″] In a traditional office, you are usually penned into your little cubicle, or an open-plan space if you are lucky. Then there’s working from home – which gives you greater flexibility, but often means you are isolated from your colleagues and connections. Fortunately, coworking spaces can deliver enormous value to those starting their own business or for companies looking to better utilise their working environment. Best of all, these spaces have access to all of the facilities…

How Co-Working Spaces Are Becoming a Second Home

By | Coworking | No Comments

At first, working from home seemed a lot like living the dream. It usually does for most of us. But let’s consider this. Hypothetical Mike from marketing had been working standard office jobs for years and experienced the same pain points as everyone else.

Across Australia, sick leave costs small businesses an average of $20,000 every year. There are obvious benefits towards keeping yourself and your workers healthy, allowing your team to remain on deck, engaged and focused.

The move away from cubicles and into co-working spaces encourages healthier choices, which in turn creates more productive workers. Add the incorporation of on-site…

By | Coworking | No Comments

Not so long ago, the term ‘digital nomad’ was foreign to most – maybe even something that belonged in a science fiction novel. Today, almost all of us are digital nomads in some way, shape or form. Technological advancements and globalisation mean that the traditional office is no longer the mainstream way we work. With easy access to high-powered portable computers, tablets, smartphones and fast, reliable internet available in most corners of the Western world, our office can be wherever…

7 Things to Lookout For when Choosing a Co-working Space

By | Coworking | No Comments

1. SEPARATE SPACES FOR QUIET, COLLABORATIVE AND CREATIVE WORK A good co-working space is one that is conducive for both collaborative work and quiet head-down time.  In one full productive day – we have the needs for both types of work.  Open-plan offices can be great for community and creativity, but when it comes to needing to bash out that proposal or take a quiet call, there can be nothing more frustrating. You’ll want easy access to private phone booths…
