Posted on May 23, 2017 by Stormy McBride in Beginnings, Community, Conference, Coworking, Coworking Trends, GCUC 2017, Press

One of the most notable parts of GCUC is the tight nit community.  In the coworking industry we forego the term "competitor" and instead use the word collaborator. Power is in the numbers- or something like that, right?  Haven't you ever heard 2 heads are better than one? The coworking and shared workspace movement has all but taken over and there is more demand than we know what to do with - competition is not necessary but alliances are. Take… Read More »

More GCUC takeaways

Workbar’s Technology Path By: Bill Jacobson I consider it my primary job to understand what drives our members in both their professional and personal lives.  At Workbar, we made the strategic decision to thoroughly learn about our community before we built any technology that we knew would eventually be required for us to scale. Spending many years in previous companies as a technology founder, I learned the value of good technology platform to a community like Workbar.  But I also… Read More »

That last thing you want to do is yap away on your phone for everyone else to hear. This wasn’t supposed to happen if everyone was talking like in a newsroom or trading floor…or even a busy restaurant, where your conversations would be private, despite the lack of any walls, because all the ambient… Read More »
