We're back with another featured space! This weeks feature is Deskworx and we thought we'd change it up and have them guest post! Coworking is about Community By: Elise Loterman When I share with people that I recently made a career transition from running a not-for-profit university student organization to managing a for-profit coworking space, I often get quizzical looks and probing questions trying to understand how that happened. For me, the answer to that question is simple- the most… Read More »

Posted on May 23, 2017 by Stormy McBride in Beginnings, Community, Conference, Coworking, Coworking Trends, GCUC 2017, Press

Power is in the numbers- or something like that, right?  Haven’t you ever heard 2 heads are better than one? The coworking and shared workspace movement has all but taken over and there is more demand than we know what to do with – competition is not necessary but alliances are. Take… Read More »

Since we have such a diverse audience and attendee base- the feedback is sometimes all over the board but it seems that this year most of our attendees are on a unified front. Much like many of you, we are also fans of the religion of crossfit analogy. Our speakers did a wonderful job of really… Read More »
