The first Plymouth Workspace Week was held in 2017 and we're helping organise the sequel in 2018!
Between Monday 19 March - Friday 23 March all of the serviced offices/incubators/coworking spaces will offer free space to new customers during the 5 day event on a first come first served basis. This will obviously appeal to people currently working from home but we also hope bigger businesses will place some staff in a collaborative workspace to see what ideas are brought back to the office.
We're busy organising 10 daytime events and an evening event every night in different pubs and bars around Plymouth. We know that collaboration can sometimes work best outside of work and we're excited about some of the topics for the evening events including "side hustles" - our panel includes a Plymouth man who bought a house from profit made on Bitcoin!
Our daytime events are a highly relevant including topics like GDPR and Stress in the Workplace as well as free refreshments, tours and free workspace for 5 days.
Plymouth is known as "Britains Ocean City" and in a recent national report released by ‘Tech Nation’ Plymouth has been listed in the top ten growth tech cluster locations in the UK. There is no reason why Plymouth could not stand out amongst other similar remote seaside cities around the world like Seattle or Stockholm.
At the end of the week we will survey all participants and with prior approval publish a detailed report on trends affecting the workplace.
