What exactly is coworking though?
'In recent years, the important role that the physical working enironment plays in allowing for greater creatively and effectiveness has started to be recognised. Nowhere is this more evident than through an emerging alternative work style called coworking, which is set to have a profound effect on what we consider a workplace to be.
Coworking spaces are shared workspaces that bring together diverse groups of individuals and startup companies….They are made up of people who could potentially work in isolation, in a home office or cafe, but who understand the huge value and power of collaboration: from change encounters, conversations over coffee, eating lunch together or being connected through events organised within the spaces or by the hosts of their chosen space.'
