The first Coworking space, was launched in San Francisco in 2005 and since then the concept has gone from a trend to the new normal. Currently there are approximately 35000 coworking spaces around the world and the number continues to grow.
Instead of self-loathing and desperately trying to reinvent yourself this year, let’s discuss easy and realistic ways to be more productive and how to achieve those goals you’re already working towards.
The self improvement industry is growing rapidly and with a never ending supply of audiobooks, podcasts, motivational speakers and youtube channels, we thought we would take a step back and recommend some good old fashioned books for your next big read!
We are living in a digital world where you can either climb the ranks or get drowned out by the thousands doing it better than you. It all comes down to standing out.
We have put together a must do list for your next business trip and we dare you not to be delighted…
A brief look into collaborating with your brain and discarding all your unrewarding habits…
After a few years, this ‘trend’ has quickly become the norm…
As the world chooses to live a more progressive lifestyle, such things as ‘renting a desk’ start to sound more and more familiar and become more popular.
“I have a meeting in 5 minutes!” How many times a week do you hear yourself saying that right before you quickly finish up your tasks?
Meetings are crucial for the day to day runnings of any business. They facilitate creativity and communication between teammates. Meetings promote new ideas and provide opportunities to think outside the box.
Work & Co’s innovative take on what an office can (or should) be…
A few years ago, the word ‘office’ might have triggered a slight gag, but today the entire working world has changed and phrases like ‘digital nomad’ and ‘mobile office’ actually exist…
More and more companies are veering away from the conventional corner office model and instead opting for the shared workspace experience. Businesses have also begun seeing how a more relaxed work environment with an emphasis on enjoyment, connection, and collaboration benefits their employees and their business.
We’re happy to say Work & Co has been featured in a wonderful blog run by the awesome team at Culture Trip! Read the article on the Culture Trip blog or check out the 10 Co-Working Spaces in Cape Town for Entrepreneurs below.
It was DIVINE! We had such a productive session, it was so good to get out of the studio and onto the mountain to think strategically! We had one window open and it was perfect, quite eery with the wind which added to the atmosphere. Loved it loved it and will be recommending it to everyone!
The Nova experience was simply unforgettable! We booked it as a surprise end-of-year pow-wow, and our partners from JHB were absolutely gobsmacked (not to mention relieved that we weren’t paragliding off Signal Hill)! The words “Fantastic”, “Incredible” and “Amazing” flowed freely from their lips. It was super energising and calming to reflect & plan whilst watching Cape Town hum along in the distance. The amenities are perfect and we were so happy to have our delivery of fresh pastries waiting for us. Abdul was also a pleasure to deal with. Thanks for everything - we will be back for more!
“Work & Co. is a fantastic place to work. No matter how big or small your company is, you will feel right at home amongst the community of professionals from a diverse array of businesses and industries. The team are incredibly professional and responsive, the decor is inspiring, and the facilities are world class - these elements combine to make for a turn key and seamless office solution, and you will find there is an infectious productivity with being in this workspace, that should translate into real results in your business - it did for us!”
Three words. Professional, designer, seamless!!!
I loved having a shared desk at Work & Co the atmosphere and people are amazing! Truly focuses on work whilst always having people around.
Work & Co is a great space located at the bottom of vibey Bree Street. I took the dedicated desk option which really worked for me in that it had respectful, like-minded coworkers and call booths when privacy was required. The staff at Work & Co are great, very accommodating and helpful which makes you really feel looked after. Highly recommended and will be back!”
Everything is perfect from the beginning to the end. Your day starts with a “WOW” effect for your team and just goes uphill from there… The equipment works perfectly and NOVA is equipped better than most of the meeting rooms I have used before! You really get your money’s worth and the booking process is easy. There’s absolutely nothing to hesitate about!
With the view of starting a creative studio, but not wanting to start with a blank canvas, we signed up with Work&Co shortly after it opened its doors. From day one we felt that this was a place we could relate to and call our office. Julien and team have designed something that gets you up in the morning and straight to the coffee station! There's original art on the walls, comfy couches, open areas for casual meetings, private offices and pristine boardrooms, the list goes on... there's not much more one could wish for from a space like this which is both relaxed and professional. Most of our clients are based abroad, but for the few that have visited, all have been super impressed with Work&Co. Thanks for making us always feel at home while at work guys!
We loved the NOVA, and will definitely bear in mind for future use. We also found Abdul very professional and willing to help where possible. He was also early for the initial meeting, something I really appreciate. We will definitely be using the service again in the future.
I absolutely love the space Work & Co has created. The atmosphere, the people, the set up - it's all conducive to a fun yet professional and productive environment. Everything is done right, and everything was run leaving me feeling that I'm always getting more than expected.
