Coworking-what’s it all about?
A pre-conceived notion of the office & coworking scenario as stuffy and impersonal could not have been further from the truth. The Hub always has something going on and a vibrant, lively atmosphere, where work and fun go hand in hand!!!
A sense of unity among the coworkers is highly evident on a day-to-day basis, and everyone I have met has been very welcoming. Realising just what coworking itself is all about was also an education. Different types of businesses combined under a shared, sustainable office space, with the opportunity to rent an individual desk, an office for longer term use, or to have a business mailbox address for correspondence and mail forwarding facilities.
Environmental and Green initiatives, are an indicator of the many other areas that coworking communities can get involved in. Having a sustainability policy in place is not only good practice in reducing carbon footprint, but also leads to good marketing and publicity for the Hub. The use of up-cycled materials in the building is evident throughout.
The first event that took place was a coffee morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support A great turnout and over £260 raised for an invaluable charity, a great opportunity to network, make new and strengthen existing contacts, reinforcing the Hub’s commitment to collaborating with other businesses in the locality.
