Why did you join Spare Workspace?
So as to share our unique creatively curated boardroom with other like-minded businesses.
What type of guests have you had in your space?
We have been approached to film TV shows, film and photo shoots, large corporate clientele for team meetings, fundraising events, social media influencer launches and events, small business who need a space that is affordable to hold meetings with new or existing clients, makeup academies, product launches, workshops and much more.
How much time commitment is involved in being a host on Spare Workspace?
Quite a lot… We like to make sure each client feels taken care of. For example, for one large corporate group, we arranged team building screen printing event after their meeting with a local artisan in the Precinct. We even arranged screens be made of banana’s as that was their team name so they all had Andy Warhol Banana bags to use as totes at work. Even when we have a client booking for two hours we like them to feel at home and we are always on call if they need any assistance
What has been your most memorable experience as a co-working manager?
The beautiful emails, cards, and flowers I have received post-event from our clientele. I have been truly touched that they have been moved to send such thoughtful gifts, it has been very unexpected!
