Building a global online library for coworking research. And why.

Today, the next big update of CoworkingLibrary.com was officially announced on stage in Barcelona at the 3rd RGCS Symposium, introducing the public, filterable and searchable index of 100+ research publications and counting. I recently partnered up with the two inspiring and highly-dedicated co-founders of the non-profit Coworking Library project. From the middle of November, I’ve […]

The #1 coworktech question of 2018

“Should our coworking space use off-the-shelf software, no software or build our own?” I get asked this question weekly, sometimes even more often than that.   It’s a question that’s also asked a tonne in coworking facebook groups, the coworking google group and to other coworking operators again and again. The question’s popularity is even one […]

Next big bets for coworking & adjacent sectors

Back in 2015 I made my first public ‘call’ on what I was seeing from within the coworking sector.

Did you also forget about you?

Raise your hand if you’ve been so busy working on your business, coworking space, career and/or family that you’ve completely forgotten about your own personal brand. Yea. Me too!

It’s a belief that’s not only translated into my business’s mission of continuously making sure that entrepreneurship is as accessible through impactful communities across the globe. But the belief also helps explain […]

5 years ago our whole economy imploded.

It taught me a few things about building resilient B2B businesses. In March 2013 the economy of Cyprus imploded, wiping out 1000s of businesses; drastically changing lives; and teaching heavy lessons along the way. A little bit of backstory.

Stepping up, and over imposter syndrome.

After 3 years, I gave my first ever talk at a coworking conference. I was so nervous leading up to my session. I kept fighting off that little voice inside my head that was prodding me about whether what I’d be sharing would be annoyingly obvious or even useful to the people who had chosen […]

What I learned from giving my first conference talk

Back in November last year I was honoured to be invited to speak at the ICT Summit in Warsaw, about some of the hurdles that European entrepreneurs building global businesses are facing. Whilst I had published the slides and the overview of my talk, yesterday I realised that I had never really watched or shared the video. […]
