Event description

Description

Since 2013 coworking has grown in Australia by 297% and continues to expand at a rate of 13-20% annually across the world. In fact what was once considered the freelancers playgroup has now become the preferred workplace by corporates and other scaling businesses. But why? And exactly HOW are they making it work.

Join us on Wednesday 25 September as we speak to founding member Joel Cranshaw and long-time coworker Iolanthe Gabrie on how and why coworking is becoming their preferred place of business.

Learn about:

  • How coworking as an industry has changed

  • The challenges involved in shared office spaces

  • The value in supporting your staff with a workplace for them

  • Why great business communities matter

  • The true meaning of flexible working

As business owners and entrepreneurs themselves Joel and Iolanthe will shed light on their own personal experiences and offer advice on how to make the most of your time in a coworking community.
