Creating a workspace that anticipates your needs and inspires exceptional work is a hallmark of The Executive Centre. To simplify the process of choosing the right space for your business to thrive, this is what you can expect from our spaces – from Private to Bespoke, Coworking and Remote, let The Executive Centre support you. 

 

The nature of work is changing, workspaces and workplaces are continuing to evolve and now, more than ever, there are conversations unfolding about how and why space can impact on productivity, creativity and output. The Executive Centre has been developing flexible workspace solutions for almost 25 years, the network now includes more than 115 centres in what will soon be 30 locations and we are continuing to grow. Our experience has taught us that an office is much more than four walls and a place to work. A thoughtfully designed space that attentively responds to the needs of our Members can have a profound impact on the ultimate success of their business. Choosing the right space and the appropriate services to support your business can be a decisive factor when it comes to determining the longevity and growth of an organisation. To help demystify this process we are sharing some of the insights we have gained in our years of operation. 

 

Statistics show that the number of coworking spaces globally in 2017 totalled 15,500, serving approximately 1.27 million people. Mingtiandi reports that Asia Pacific is leading the global surge in flexible offices, with total co-working and serviced office space in the region soaring 150 percent from 2014 to 2017, according to a new report by JLL. The growth of the industry is a key indicator of the shift in how and where we work. Our relationship with workspace is changing, our expectations of what an office looks like are evolving, and technology, design, community and aesthetics are a more prominent concern for both individuals and organsiations. Choosing the right space for your business to thrive can be an overwhelming decision, but our flexible solutions are a response to these changing workplace dynamics.  

 

Private Workspace (Serviced Office) 

Our Private Workspaces are fully equipped and come ready for you to make your mark. From technology, to interior design, we take care of everything. This arrangement is ideal for everyone from small teams of two or three people, to large multinationals looking to secure multiple locations.

What are the benefits of a Private Workspace? 

  • Flexibility is the hallmark of this arrangement. There is no need to commit to a long-term lease which allows you to test the waters in a new market and remain agile when it comes to the size of your team. We can support you as you determine what works best for your business.  
  • We will do the heavy lifting, literally and figuratively speaking. No moving costs or cumbersome relocation. We make sure that your space is ready for you to begin working right away.  
  • Enjoy access to our professional team and global network. All our centres are supported by an expert team that can help with everything from basic administrative tasks to restaurant recommendations. You will also have access to our community events, online forum and networking opportunities. 
  • Maintenance is our problem, not yours and we’re committed to maintaining the exceptional standards of our centres. 
  • Eliminate set up costs when you join The Executive Centre. 
  • A prime location for networking. We make it a priority to establish communal areas in our centres that provide opportunities for informal networking and collaborative work. Our community initiative also gives Members a chance to connect both online and offline to share information, ask questions and leverage the experience and expertise of our global network.  

 

Coworking 

Coworking at The Executive Centre offers more than just a desk. Our collaborative workspaces are designed to facilitate connections with like-minded professionals and give you the flexibility to work when, where and how you want to.

What are the benefits of Coworking? 

  • Flexibility is one of the greatest advantages of Coworking at The Executive Centre. Our spaces and facilities are available for you to use at a time that works for you. Coworking is also an ideal solution if you travel often or want to use a professional workspace part time.  
  • Structure and support are crucial in any workplace, but particularly so for the entrepreneur or freelancer who has decided to cowork. Working alongside likeminded professionals not only creates networking and collaborative opportunities, but it creates a strong sense of purpose in an environment designed as a foundation to your success.  
  • Community is a cornerstone of our Member experience and this is particularly important when Coworking. In-person networking opportunities are made possible by the layout of our collaborative work environments and also by our suite of events and online community initiatives.  
  • Our professional team can help with everything from mail handling and simple administrative tasks, to answering questions about the best place for lunch or client dinners.  

 

Remote Workspace (Virtual Office) 

A Remote Workspace package with The Executive Centre allows you to maintain a constant professional presence at one of our distinguished business addresses, all while allowing yourself the freedom and flexibility to work wherever you want.

What are the benefits of a Remote Workspace (Virtual Office)? 

  • A Remote Workspace gives your organisation legitimacy thanks to a prestigious location, while still affording you the flexibility to work when and where you want to.  
  • Administrative details are taken care of, leaving you to get on with more pressing matters. Mail-handling, call-handling and a dedicated phone line mean significantly less administration for both you and your team.  
  • Avoiding a commute means a significant improvement in work-life balance without the need to compromise on the benefits that a landmark address can provide.  
  • It’s much easier to scale your business when you don’t need to worry about accommodating a fluctuating team in a designated space that you may soon outgrow. A Remote Workspace offers your clients a consistent experience while you are afforded the time and flexibility to establish the best location and arrangement for your business.  

 

Bespoke Workspace 

Our Bespoke Workspaces are an opportunity for you to truly make your mark. We can create a completely custom space solution tailored to you and your business that covers everything from layout to branding, all with the support of our in-house experts. From technology to design requirements, a Bespoke Workspace is a highly personalised approach to work.

What are the benefits of a Bespoke Workspace? 

  • With a Bespoke Workspace there is absolutely no need to compromise. If you have a very clear vision of where you would like to work, we are able to help bring that vision to life.  
  • A custom-built space is a unique opportunity to distinguish your business from competitors and really assert your brand identity. It’s also a chance to fuse strategy and creativity and assert a positive company outlook and culture.  
  • An inspirational space provokes inspiring and creative work. Give your team the foundations to deliver exceptional results with a space that demands the very best.  
  • Enjoy access to our professional team and global network. All our centres are supported by an expert team that can help with everything from basic administrative tasks to restaurant recommendations. You will also have access to our community events, online forum and networking opportunities. 
  • Maintenance is our problem, not yours and we’re committed to maintaining the exceptional standards of our centres. 
  • Every executive Centre is a prime opportunity for networking. We make it a priority to establish communal areas in our centres that provide opportunities for informal networking and collaborative work. Our community initiative also gives Members a chance to connect both online and offline to share information, ask questions and leverage the experience and expertise of our global network.
