October 31 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm
Looking to switch up your work-from-home routine? We’re partnering with SPACES at the Innovation Centre to offer you the chance to try a free day of coworking!
During the day, you’ll experience a taste of coworking, as well as a chance to learn, share and network.
Also – it’s Halloween!! So feel free to wear your costume – there will be candy and a prize for best costume!
What to expect:
You’ll be sitting at a workstation near fellow young professionals, all working independently – so bring your laptop, charger and any other work you want to do! Spaces has a fantastic space with free wifi, coffee and tea, and a lounge.
8:30 a.m. Doors Open
Come in anytime and get set up (Psst..you don’t have to come this early, you are welcome to get those extra zzz’s and join later in the morning)
10:15 a.m. Water Cooler Break
Take a quick 15 min and stretch your legs with us in the kitchen and enjoy coffee or tea while we chat about our fave tv show recommendations, get to know each other and check in on goals for the day.
12 p.m. Community Lunch & Halloween Costume Contest
Bring your own lunch, or pick one up from one of the many fantastic local cafes and get to know others from the coworking community. We’ll also be giving out Halloween Candy and awarding the prize for best costume!
3 p.m. Afternoon Meditation Break
Join us for a 10 minute guided meditation to breathe deeper, de-stress and get redirected in your afternoon to-do list!
5 p.m. – Doors Close
Finish your day whenever you choose, doors close at 5 p.m.
Coworking is a shared but independent working environment.One of the greatest benefits of coworking is that it provides a wider range of networking opportunities. Other benefits of coworking include:
- Increased productivity
- Boosts creativity
- Provides collaboration opportunities
- Offers greater flexibility
- Provides a sense of belonging and purpose
Spaces Innovation is the city’s first foray into flexible workspace, and makes creating an inspiring environment the priority.
