In this episode, I talk to Ryan Hoopes, Senior Associate at Real Estate Services firm Colliers International. He also co-founded the firm’s global flexible workspace advisory practice.
Ryan talks through the evolution of the landlord approach to flexible workspace...and how we’re just at the beginning of an evolution of the landlord/flex workspace operator relationship.
I met Jamie Orr last April on a visit to take advantage of some fresh snow at Heavenly Mountain on the south side of Lake Tahoe. Dreaming of moving to the mountains and working out of a great coworking space, I had to take a tour. After hearing her story, I knew she had to be a guest on the podcast because her journey touched on many of the same questions that my audience is trying to understand.
Jamie shares many insights from her team’s experiences, including a pilot project ski-in-ski-out coworking space at Heavenly Mountain!
In this episode, I share highlights from the latest Global Coworking forecast by Emergent Research.
Overall, no major surprises, just affirmation that the growth in both supply and demand for coworking continues at a rapid clip - about 16% on the supply side and almost 24% on the demand side.

It’s the season of thinking about new beginnings and how to be a better you in 2018.
I read a book over the Thanksgiving break that I could not put down and I literally wanted to send it to all of my coworking friends. So I thought I should share it on the Podcast and do an episode on top 5 list of coworking books for coworking space owners, managers, etc. to read.
These books did not come out in 2017, nor are the ideas in these books are not necessarily new, but taken in the context of coworking, can help you think differently about your business, use better language to talk about your business and your “why” and to consider how you might do things differently in your business in 2018.
These books are all available on Audible as well which is a great app for buying and listening to audio books. Sometimes that’s the only reading time that I have. The trade-off is you can’t take notes and highlight sections that you want to go back to, but if it’s the only way to get through a book, I say make the trade-off.
