Coworking spaces aren’t merely just about the design and style of a space. Workspace providers have gradually shifted from encouraging collaboration to creating value-adding events that are beneficial to their community.
It’s about providing relevant and up-to-date content that promotes work-life balance. So if you’re a part of a coworking community, we’ve come up with note-worthy topics that your coworkers will definitely love.
Digital Marketing Workshops
The power of digital technology has always been a fascinating subject matter for those who are digitally-savvy. A workshop or seminar about digital trends will surely entice your members who are looking to expand their knowledge on topics such as social media, SEO, SEM or UX/UI design. Invite some note-worthy speakers, and we’re sure that you’ll have a jam-packed space of digital natives.
Startup Pitch Competitions
Startup competitions are happening almost everywhere, and it makes more sense to hold these events in a coworking space where most startups thrive. These are funded by organizations that launch programs and summits to prepare competing startups for their pitches. So what’s all the fuss about? Believe it or not, some of these competitions can grant a prize of up to $1,000,000. It’s the Olympic for the startups! So expect a lot of cheers and excitement from your audience. For the past couple of years, we’ve become a venue partner of Seedstars World, a global startup competition based in Switzerland, and we’ve witnessed a lot of startups that made history in the country.
Health and Fitness Events
People nowadays are taking positive steps towards a healthier lifestyle. We’ve become more and more aware of the food we consume and of our daily activities. Our goal has always been to help our coworkers eliminate excuses and unhealthy habits, so we curate events that will give them more motivation to keep a healthy and well-balanced lifestyle.
For instance, we’ve tied-up with fitness institutions such as Electric Studio, the biggest indoor cycling studio in Manila, to give our coworkers an exclusive spinning session every month.
A community event is an ultimate ice-breaker for your busy coworkers, no matter how hard it is to get their attention sometimes—maybe because they have deadlines to beat or an important call to take. You have to find the right time to surprise them with treats like pizza day, weekly community breakfast, or a wine session! That’ll remind them to take a break from their excel sheets and mingle with their coworkers.
Music & Film Festivals
Besides coffee, what do your coworkers have in common? In our case, we noticed their passion for music and film as they share their Spotify playlists or even a list of their favorite films. So we participate in events such as Fête de la Musique (World Music Day) and throw a free concert every year since it brings our coworkers together along with visitors around the city.
To give you an idea, here’s how fun our stage was last year.
BTW, you can join us this June 22, 2019, at Acceler8-Legazpi UG Level, 111 Paseo de Roxas Building, Legazpi Village, Makati City for another Fête de la Musique: Post-Rock/Math-Rock stage.
