Grow your network, meet new people and get out of the house to work with us at Okanagan coLab!
About this event:
Looking to switch up your work-from-home routine? We’re partnering with the Okanagan coLab 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 some of coLab’s events where you can learn, share and network – and we’ll have a few OYP surprises!
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! coLab has a fantastic space with free wifi, coffee, and tea, a kitchen, and a lounge.
8 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), Or come check out our monthly coffee social from 8-9 a.m. in Affinity Hall!
12 p.m. BYOL
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.
5 p.m. – Doors Close
Finish your day whenever you choose. coLab doors close at 5 p.m.
The day will also be filled with delicious snacks and a few surprises!
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
