As flexible workspaces continue to grow in Malaysia (2015-2017 saw a 28% growth in the market), we are seeing an increasing number of coworking operators opening their doors (or even expanding) and offering members unique services. On top of the normal offerings that we have come to expect of coworking spaces - such as high-speed WiFi, free coffee, and free water - operators around Kuala Lumpur are finding new ways to differentiate themselves from each other.

Planning an event can be an exciting time, but it can also be overwhelming. In fact, event coordinator made it to the list of most stressful jobs in 2017. Making sure no small detail slips through the cracks or only makes itself known on the day of the event can seem almost impossible. So how do you avoid those Homer Simpson "DOH" moments, or at least minimize them as much as possible (because let's face it, nothing ever goes 100% according to plan 100% of the time)? The magic word: organization.

Remote working, or telecommuting, has become all the rage in recent years - with an increasing number of companies and employees embracing remote working culture. A 2017 Survey indicates that 52 percent of employees in US work remotely at least once per week. In another Survey conducted by Upwork, it's predicted that 38 percent of permanent, full-time employees will adopt remote working in the next 10 years.
It's that time of the year when everyone is talking about fun outdoor events, parties, and entertainment - summer! It's less than a month away and for those of us living in Southeast Asia, we are lucky since it's always summer! Nevertheless this time of year gives us the perfect excuse to host an outdoor party (or even better since this period is typically the driest with the lowest average rainfall). Often times, you won't get the best views of the city from sitting indoors, so perhaps a nice rooftop space would be a pleasant change of scenery for your classy corporate gatherings, networking events, or even casual drinks with friends.

April is almost over but that doesn't mean you should write it off just yet. Have a look at our list of top events happening in a coworking space this April.
Few people would deny that working from an office with a scenic view is better than staring down four walls or a construction site. It is no secret that the quality of our environment has an impact on our personal well being, but let’s get down to brass tacks.
As the number of coworking spaces continues to grow across Southeast Asia, especially with big global brands such as WeWork alongside regional players expanding across the region, so do the number of niche coworking spaces.
