I'm a transformative, leadership coach and need a specific, quiet space to have very deep conversations with people. And as much as I conduct sessions on Zoom, I wanted to do so in person, but I couldn't afford office space. So the programme has allowed me to come into this space, to bring my clients, use the rooms and have a tailored environment for those transformative conversations.


It’s helped me in terms of connections and networking on my entrepreneurial journey because at WeWork there are so many cool people here, companies and things going on. I've had some great conversations just with people in the lobby and the waiting areas, and building relationships in a social setting like this has helped me a lot and it's opened my eyes to even more possibilities.
