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.
