June 2019 is the most fun month yet for The London Coworking Assembly.
We started life as a Facebook group in 2014 and in 2018 we worked to re-energise the community and moved to a new platform with a smaller group of highly committed people.
For nearly a year we’ve been quietly gathering independent coworking space owners, researchers, workspace consultants and platform builders in the London Coworking Assembly.
- Our members run some of the most established independent coworking spaces in London.
- We are committed to building a fair, inclusive and thriving coworking industry and movement.
- If you are looking for golf days, personalised number plates and long boozy lunches this is not the space for you.
- Not based in London? We’re happy to hook you up with a group near you. This is London focused only.
Every month we run peer to peer-led conversations about how to build a coworking space business.
We also seek conversations that reach way beyond the tired and drab ‘future of work’ debate run by white men in navy blue suits.
Why join Events?
It takes time to build relationships and understanding, and whether you are a consultant, software company or own a handful of coworking spaces, you will benefit from being connected.
So every time you come to an event look at it as a chance to strengthen this network, your network and build the coworking movement.

2. 11th June Our Monthly Breakfast
Every month London Coworking Assembly members meet in a different coworking space for breakfast.
We’re a small and very diverse group of self-organised people who have been in and around London Coworking for the last decade.
You’ll find a wealth of experience and curiosity at each breakfast session and people stay around to chat and connect further after each event.
This Tuesday we’ll be chatting about “Sales” and what that means, also what is the best value for growing your coworking business, attending a conference or a workshop?

3. 12th June 2 pm- 4 pm Building the Ultimate Creative Workspace?
This afternoon event brings together some of the most creative thinkers and industry rebels from the worlds of coworking, tech and research to explore the future of the ultimate workspace.
The coworking industry, while innovative in some respects, is struggling to fuse space, technology and organisational practice in ways that produce genuinely creative, productive communities.
Addressing this challenge head-on, the speakers featuring in this session will provide an insiders’ view on London’s most cutting-edge workspaces as well as the immersive technologies and more in-depth strategies that will shape tomorrow’s creative workplace.
