  • His background and role as CPO for essensys
  • What’s most exciting to him about the coworking/flex office industry?
  • What are the physical risks space operators need to be aware of?
  • What are the cyber security risks that space operators need to be aware of?
  • What are the basic physical and cyber security solutions to protect members against these risks? 
  • What are the security components that one needs to have in place to serve corporate clients?

He also talks about:

  • Member experience that can be addressed by technology. 
  • Aspects of a tech/IT suite that the best operators are integrating to enhance member experience.
  • For operators that are either just starting or planning for expansion, the technology components that should be a focus for them if they are operating in competitive markets.

Casey Godwin is unique in that he's done enough deals in the coworking space to develop an expertise around the model and best practices for the coworking space search process.

Casey starts the episode by setting our expectations around what a CRE broker should bring to the table in terms of resources, access to data and unbiased support for you, the future tenant.

He then walks through: 1) What to include in a pitch deck; 2) Data to collect to understand the market; 3) How to conduct a competitor analysis; 4) What demographic data to consider in your search; 5) How to customize your pro forma and 6) How to understand the capital required for the project.
