Being a partner at the world’s first global coworking consultancy for almost a decade has granted me the privilege of collaborating with numerous clients and partners, each with their own unique challenges and opportunities, concepts, and implementation journeys. After the hybrid revolution, OpenWork, took root as a corporate workplace research firm. So it’s fitting that we would share an important update: the launch of a new website, CoworkingConsulting.com, created in partnership with some ecosystem partners I’ve learned to trust and work with over the past decade. While OpenWork will explore the research area of focus, this new initiative is exclusively focused on coworking. We’re doubling down. View Press Release
Why the Switch?
Over the years, after we have worked with numerous partners on coworking projects, from technology and furniture companies to marketing and door access providers. These collaborations have contributed to the success of countless coworking spaces worldwide. In order to better serve the growing coworking industry and model moving forward, the coworking models needs create a platform that unites the process and value chain of partners to benefit industry adoption and deployment, thus CoworkingConsulting.com (powered by our Partnership Ecosystem) was born.
The main difference between CoworkingConsulting.com and OpenWork Agency is our area of focus, customer type, and our frameworks and processes for delivering projects. OpenWork Agency serves organization HR directors, facility managers, and executives who are focused on improving their organizational workplace strategy. CoworkingConsulting is focused exclusively on helping new and existing coworking operations to concept, grow, and scale specifically in the coworking industry.
“We’re thrilled to officially launch our new co-initiative, CoworkingConsulting.com, focusing exclusively on coworking consulting. Our commitment to unlocking the benefits of coworking for the world remains strong, and we’re doubling down with a community consulting model. CoworkingConsulting.com leverages the Turnkey Coworking Development Model and is supported by an ecosystem of industry-leading partners. We are dedicated to helping new and existing coworking operators deploy and scale successful operations.“David Walker, Chief Collaboration Officer (Press release)
Introducing the Coworking Development Partner Ecosystem:
The new platform is powered by our Coworking Development Partner Ecosystem, comprised of partners we’ve worked with on projects over the last ten years. Our goal is to make it easier than ever for clients to succeed in the coworking industry by partnering on infrastructure and helping to build bridges towards real estate developers and coworking operators in creative ways.
We’ve also expanded our global reach by partnering with three other coworking consulting firms in Scotland, Barcelona, and Cambodia. This collaboration allows us to share best practices, resources, and expertise across borders, ultimately helping our clients achieve greater success in the coworking industry.
Dear Past Clients:
If you’ve worked with OpenWork in the past, hopefully, you have had a great experience. We have an unlimited license access policy to all OpenWork IP, which means we come with a decade’s worth of business models, financial models, operations manuals, training programs, allocation models, revenue and expense data, technology frameworks, and more. While we are able to leverage the OpenWork resource library in full, we have updated our service approach to feel differently. By leveraging a more interconnected process with our partners, the process moves much quicker and becomes much more scalable. This allows us to evolve our pricing model and achieve greater impact for the client at a lower cost.
Dear Past Partners:
We have enjoyed working with you on various client projects and conversations. We look forward to deepening that relationship so that we can leverage each other to soar to new heights as we collectively have the opportunity to have a huge impact on the evolving commercial real estate scene. It is a task too mighty for one institution, but by banding together and forming a bridge towards the future of work, paved by ecosystem partnerships, we are allowing large players to have the confidence of a one-stop-shop to turnkey convert their properties into coworking success.
💡The Future of CoworkingConsulting.com:
As the Chief Collaboration Officer at CoworkingConsulting.com, my mission is to drive innovation and collaboration in the coworking industry. We have developed a new Consulting Framework, inspired by the collaborative efforts that coworking is known for. We have created a collaborative process that takes the entire linear process of the turnkey coworking advisory process and combines it into a fully integrated process with our partner network that happens “all at once.” This innovative approach allows us to provide more efficient and cost-effective solutions for our clients, while maintaining the high-quality service they expect from us.
Our goal is to unlock the vast and exciting opportunities in the coworking industry and help clients achieve their goals through partnerships, camaraderie, and innovation. We’re exploring new development frameworks, leveraging our partnership ecosystem in innovative ways, that takes collaboration to new possibilities for all stakeholders.
As the coworking industry continues to evolve, we at CoworkingConsulting.com remain committed to staying at the forefront of innovation, providing cutting-edge solutions and services for our coworking clients and partners.
We are excited to embark on this new chapter in our journey and look forward to helping coworking spaces around the world succeed and thrive.
