In Part #4 we will explore the popular question – Who uses a coworking space?

A whole range of people and businesses use coworking spaces. From independent freelancers to teams and local companies. Some people are in every day working away on the day job, others pop in now and again or simply use our virtual office services and book our rooms for client meetings.

We believe that a mix of different businesses makes for a strong community, we don’t focus on specific industries and welcome anyone to join us. At Society1 we have an amazing mix of businesses in our community, here’s a few..:
• Film makers
• Podcast makers
• Coders
• Engineers
• SEO specialists
• Architects
• Web and Graphic designer
• Brand specialists
• An Ethical New platform
• Accountants
• Project control specialists
• Business development coaches

What a mix of people. For us this is where the magic happens. With such a variety of people working from here we have a rich and varied community. There is lots of support for each other and everyone is always willing to give a point in the right direction or some words of wisdom. The other thing that happens here is that you feel like you are part of something bigger. You inadvertently gain work colleagues but as someone said to me….without the office politics.

– The socials are a great way to meet other people.
