Angel Kwiatkowski :: Coworking Consultant
If you are a coworking space catalyst looking for help from someone with real world experience running a coworking space, I’m your gal! Space catalysts who work with me most appreciate that I offer them practical, actionable tips for how to start a coworking space and build a community.
Coworking Space Catalyst Consulting & Help
I help passionate people to open a coworking space in their community. My five week program will help you understand the foundations of the coworking movement, your target market, where to site your space, the principles of community engagement/facilitation, how much it really costs to open a space and basic business planning.
My coworking consulting rate is $75/hour and all meetings are conducted at Cohere or over the phone/chat/email. I take a maximum of 2 clients at a time so book early and with great relish! Commitment phobic? That’s okay, take a gander at the coworking ebooks I’ve written as a simple and affordable start to build your coworking resources and knowledge.
“Angel’s coworking consulting program for space catalysts is a excellent service. All the sessions were focused around the core values of the coworking movement. I was most impressed by Angel’s passion for the coworking. Angel doesn’t just present material from stock presentations. She takes the time to build a relationship with you and genuinely thinks of you more as a colleague in the coworking movement as opposed to just a client. She provides history behind all of her suggestions on what has worked in coworking up to this point and what hasn’t really been successful. Angel has a tremendous ability to focus in on what will benefit the client the most. In our particular case it was the community building portion of coworking. She really focused in on those particular sessions and provided us tangible suggestions that will enable us to avoid some pitfalls she has seen in the launch of other coworking spaces. Angel has the uncanny ability to remove constraints and focus in on what will help us out the most in starting a coworking community. We were most grateful for her help in offering such a great service.” -Steve & Emily, Colorado Catalysts
” The whole 5 week consulting period was thoughtfully outlined from day one. Angel managed to stay within our agreed time line, and offered extremely useful informational packets with each meeting. Every hour long session was absolutely packed with a wealth of helpful advice, and knowledge…Angel was not only organized and professional, she was also warm and caring. She would genuinely share the joy of every step (big or small) that brought me closer to my goals. Our time together was invaluable to me, as it saved me from stepping in unforeseen pot holes that, otherwise, I would have fallen into. I highly recommend her services…” -Jennifer Lea, Space Catalyst, Longmont, Colorado-
“Angel knows a great deal about coworking and is constantly learning about new trends in this growing movement. Her knowledge is evident from her blog posts and helpful responses she provides online in various coworking forums. However, Angel’s real value is the personal relationship and detailed responses she provides that are catered to each client. She was willing to teach me but also eager to do the hard detailed work of providing valuable contacts and relevant street data that only comes with experience and a dedication to helping other coworking catalysts succeed. With her help I am more confident my new coworking community will succeed and be a powerful facility for all of the future coworkers in Denver.
If you want to learn more about coworking in general, the business aspect of it, or learn how to develop a community focused facility then she is an exceptional resource. I would recommend her to anyone.” -Craig Baute, Space Catalyst, Denver, Colorado-
“Angel offers pragmatic, action-oriented advice AND she’s a terrific resource for positive, creative ideas that are relevant to your business. Like a one-two punch plus a high-five.” -Julie Sutter, Copywriter-
“Angel has an effective and fun approach to helping a business owner improve their business. She has a knack for ignoring the noise and zeroing in on a business’s most vital functions. In my case Angel helped me understand the use and value of social media as an inexpensive marketing tool and has also helped me update one of my product offerings to incorporate the most modern scenario planning tools available.” - Michael Clingan, Marketing Strategist:The Claymore Group
“Angel has helped me develop the specifics of my business (like introducing me to people to work with and pointing me in the direction of helpful services and resources), to the more sweeping aspects of my business (like how to develop my skills and set meaningful goals). She has an incredible ability to listen–and to hear even what I’m not saying. She gives pointed feedback. She doesn’t mess around. I wouldn’t be where I am today without Angel’s delightful brain (and heart).” -Cali Harris, Web Copywriter-
“Launching my small business in January 2011 has been such an exciting process, but also a bit terrifying! Working with Angel Kwiatkowski has provided me with great business development resources and tools. But more importantly, Angel has instilled a sense of confidence in me throughout this endeavor. It has been so beneficial to have a consultant to reach out to with questions and concerns. I highly recommend working with Angel!” -Amanda Miller, Event Planner: The Place Setting Company-
