Launching the  Coworky Awards!

Posted on March 15, 2017 by Stormy McBride in Conference, Coworking, Coworking Trends, Coworky Awards, GCUC 2017

  The Global Coworking Unconference Conference (GCUC – pronounced juicy) is known for being little, well...off-beat, unique and different.  We don’t follow the rules and we don’t pay attention to what everyone else is doing.  We march to the beat of our own drummer. We do our own thing and it seems to resonate and attract a very diverse and passionate following. We have been talking about creating an industry awards program for years and this year is the year… Read More »

Why did GCUC tickets go up in price?

Posted on February 20, 2017 by Stormy McBride in Conference, Coworking, GCUC 2017

Holding an event in the most populous city in America is expensive.  When we say expensive we mean really, really, really expensive.  Our cost went up almost 40% year over year just for the venue.  We also wanted to be in the heart of the city and that also drives up cost.  We did look hard at Industry in Brooklyn and BellWorks in New Jersey but we really didn’t feel like the neighborhoods could support our unique needs. After battling… Read More »

A love letter to Coworking

Posted on February 14, 2017 by Stormy McBride in Coworking, GCUC 2017, GCUC 21013 Conference, GCUC Story, Retrospective

I remember well the meetup at the uber trendy San Jose Hotel before SXSW in 2009.  I met a whole bunch of operators from around the world and thought – what a bunch of suckers.  They were willing to tell me all their secrets.  They were willing to send me their business plans.  I thought to myself… this is FANTASTIC, I’m the only the shark in the tank.  It took about one month before I was schooled on new way… Read More »

Posted on February 13, 2017 by Stormy McBride in Community, Coworking, Press

  Coworking is a little different than just working from a coffee shop and here's why... You can go to the restroom without having to ask your sketchy neighbor to watch your laptop or having to pack everything up and risk loosing "your spot". Coworking spaces are designed for maximum productivity. Everything from comfortable erganomic chairs to white noise and strategically placed power outlets. Most of the time the coffee is free in a coworking space and you dont have… Read More »

2016 was juicy

Posted on January 10, 2017 by Stormy McBride in Community, Conference, Coworking, GCUC USA 2016, Retrospective

2016 was a great year for GCUC and coworking in general. We made a lot of new friends, took GCUC to new places and grew as community along the way. We could not be more excited to see what the new year has in store. A little reflection on 2016.... GCUC took place in Los Angeles for the very first time. We also held an epic rock paper scissors tournament with over 100 people! We put South America on the… Read More »
