Kisi hosted a webinar with Melissa Schilo, a coworking consultant with over 12 years of experience in flexible workspace solutions. Melissa and Kisi's co-founder, Max Schuetz, discussed the future of modern offices and explained the key concepts of coworking. Melissa shared a consultant's perspective on different types of shared and flex spaces, as well as common oversights when planning and operating a coworking space.
Today, tenants build working relationships with landlords to add more value to the building. Coworking company owners and landlords can collaborate to offer a range of levels of working. Property owners can harness this teamwork to take advantage of their underutilized spaces, getting the most out of empty spaces of any size, while coworking space owners can design the area and fill it with amenities to make a profit.

I am a current client of Melissa's. She has been a great help in giving us new methods for marketing our business which make sense for our area and have helped boost sales. She has also suggested new ways to analyze data so that we can increase our margins on current products, and has developed new approaches to marketing our current services so that we can reach new audiences. I specifically asked Melissa for her assistance in the marketing and sales area, but I am confident that her knowledge and experience would prove useful in all areas of any shared space business.

Being a landlord who only recently decided to explore opening a coworking business, it was a real blessing to come across Melissa Schillo from Workspace Concierge LLC. Melissa’s knowledge and expertise in the coworking industry on every aspect of the business, from how to structure the offices, producing a feasibility report of the space, the different revenue streams available, through to her approach to sales and marketing is second to none. Without a doubt, working with Melissa has provided me with both piece of mind and the confidence that we will be launching a viable and exciting cowork

Melissa's extensive knowledge and global experience within the workspace industry is partnered with an extraordinary passion to support her clients, whether developing them from the ground up or enhancing existing business. She offered us a fresh perspective, equipped us with high level &#34;no nonsense&#34; knowledge and resourceful tips that helped us provide our clients with more service and better customer care while increasing our bottom line. We saw an upturn in recurring revenue within 1 week and increase in online sales as a result of some adaptation to our marketing strategy.
