My hopes (and fears) for implementing Hyperlocal Coworking Perks

It’s undeniable that coworking spaces, and other multi-business communities, make a huge economic impact on the businesses in their immediate neighbourhoods. Members are constantly supporting neighbourhood markets, mom-and-pop stores and grabbing many many meals from local eateries, driving revenue into and across local economies every single day. Often, the best of these local vendors love […]


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

Today, the next big update of 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

Your Personal Brand often refers to the clout and reputation attributed to your name, especially if your current professional position or business had to miraculously vanish […]

fwc-mockup the launch plan.

Those who know me, know I have a firm belief that entrepreneurship is an insanely powerful socioeconomic catalyst for empowering and activating entire communities. 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. Let me take a moment to paint a picture of what my business life looked like in March […]


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 […]
