As the vision for what the Future of Work is continues to evolve, so do the industries that support it. No single term better defines the modern workers’ need for WiFi, workspace and human interaction better than shared workspace. Far too often individuals have defined what is or is not “coworking” vs. “executive offices” vs. “accelerators” vs “cafes” and the list could go on and on. These personal definitions then extend (and limit) who they connect, collaborate and engage with.

Labels are helpful up to a certain point. What’s often missed though, is that all these types of spaces are made up of a community of members. And with managing a community (no matter what type, shape or size) comes common challenges, needs and lessons learned.

That’s where QTLY comes in. Our locally focused programs and events take place quarterly (QTLY - get it?!) with the intention to provide a foundation of support and collaboration among community managers and space owners/operators. No matter how you brand yourself or what others call you, if you provide shared workspace we welcome you!

It’s our responsibility as owners, operators, and community managers to come together and learn from each other so that we can provide the best experiences for our members.”
