If you’ve been running your business from home, chances are you’ve ran into a few problems - like discovering how easy it is to stream just one (or seven) more episodes of that favourite show, or how little issues like the internet dropping out in the middle of that all-important sales pitch can quickly turn a great day into one that you wish you could forget.

A shared working space could be just what your business needs to reach that whole new level of professionalism.

Here’s six reasons why you should consider a shared space at the Stretton Centre in 2021:

1. It’s way cheaper than you’d think

If you’re the kind of person who drinks a couple of barista-made skim lattes with no foam and four sugars every day, that’s already enough money to pay for a dedicated desk space at the Stretton Centre.

Spaces start from less than $10 per day and all include:

  • No additional overhead costs
  • Unlimited tea and coffee (trust us – the coffee machine is really good!)
  • Free parking
  • Free printing
Enjoy complimentary coffee for you and your clients as part of your Premium Office Space package.

2. There’s way less admin

From remembering to water the office plants, to making sure the internet bills are paid and the printer is working when you need it most, there’s a lot to think about when you run a business.

At the Stretton Centre, we take care of the nitty gritty, so you’re not wasting time on hold to your internet provider or arranging repairs with the plumber. You can focus on what matters most – your business.

3. You can say goodbye to distractions

Do you go down Wikipedia wormholes or make a point of visiting the fridge every ten minutes to see if anything has changed? It’s probably time to get out of the house…

A dedicated workspace not only gives you accountability and helps you to stay on track, it also separates your work and personal lives – meaning you’re far less likely to spend the day doing unnecessary chores during business hours, or falling back into work mode on a relaxing evening.

4. You’ll have daily opportunities to network with other local businesses

Some of the many things our businesses love about working from the Stretton Centre are the opportunities to bounce ideas off like-minded businesses in a similar stage of growth, the chances to collaborate with people with complementary skill sets, and, most importantly, to have a bit of company on those days when you’re struggling to motivate yourself.

Current business owners within the Stretton Centre work across broad industries, including:

  • Marketing
  • NDIS support
  • Video production
  • Accounting
  • Recruiting agencies
  • Counsellors
  • Rehabilitation
  • Defence
  • Insurance
  • Migration
  • Real Estate

5. You’ll reach a whole new level of professionalism

We’ll take any excuse to share this video one more time, but seriously, a level of professionalism is so important to growing a business.

A dedicated office shows your customers that you mean business, while having a place to meet other than the local coffee shop is a sure-fire recipe to impress clients.

All businesses with spaces at the Stretton Centre receive complimentary access to a dedicated meeting room along with an exclusive 20% discount when hiring our state-of-the-art boardroom meeting and training rooms.

6. Did we mention that the Stretton Centre has amazing internet?
