There are more and more coworking spaces opening up all over the region. Some are more casual whilst others more corporate, some cater to startups still in their infancy and others specifically cater to women. Basically, there's a coworking space for everyone.
Whether you're new to the coworking scene or you're a seasoned veteran, it's important to know the differences between the different spaces you make available - because as we all know, coworking spaces aren't simply one big open-layout office. However, for new members, the intricacies of the different types of memberships, i.e hot desk or dedicated desk, may not be as clear cut.
We all know the annoyance, especially those of us living in cities like Manila, when rush hour hits and all of a sudden, a simple half hour trip turns into enough time to watch Gladiator. Or even having to wake up way before you're scheduled to come in to work because your office is on the other side of the city. What's more, once you get into your office, you're hit with a stream of unreliable wifi issues, a lack of quality coffee (and perhaps some office loneliness?). Thankfully, remote working has become more and more of a viable option - thanks to technology as well as the increasing number of coworking spaces - giving people the flexibility to work from wherever they want.
The right venue for your event can be a make-it-or-break-it moment for its success - everything your guests experience will be, in part, affected by the venue itself. Finding the perfect one for your needs may take some time, but it's worth exploring the various options to ensure you throw a unique and memorable event for everyone involved.
Whether you have years of experience under your belt planning your company’s Christmas parties or if this is your first time tackling this endeavour, it’s never as simple as simply clicking your heels together. A good Christmas party that everyone will enjoy requires organization, from venue to food to music.
As a startup ourselves, we've gone to plenty of events and conferences all over the region. No matter their scale, we've always learned something that will help in either starting or growing our business.
The coworking trend continues to be on the rise - with Deskmag predicting over 1 million people will have used a coworking space by the end of the year. Working out of these spaces has been shown to improve productivity, but first you need to find the right space for you.
Catering to the increasingly young and tech-savvy population now entering the workforce, coworking spaces have sprouted up all over Manila. However, they’re more than just places to work - they’re community builders that integrate the feel of your neighborhood coffee shop with the functionality and professionalism of a traditional office. As each of them is unique in the spaces or services they offer, you’d be hardpressed to not find a coworking space suited to your needs.
