This month we caught up with one of our Neutral Bay residents, Eddy Johnstone, who is revolutionising the way we find parking with his space-sharing
app, Parkaroo. The app allows people with vacant spaces during the day or after work to hire them out and is an example of the customer centric innovation that we see being so successful today with the likes of Uber and Air BnB disrupting the landscape in traditional commercial service industries. Eddy is a perfect example of how working in a collaborative space can benefit your business, as he currently created a pitch video for the concept using the skills of his fellow workspace members, Kylie Flemming and Jasha Andrews (as videographer and presenter), which you can check out here.. Now you don’t get that from a home office!
We put our 3 spotlight questions to Eddy to get his experience of being in a WOTSO space.
- Why did you decide to work in a WOTSO WorkSpace and what do you like most about it?
WOTSO Neutral Bay was my second shared workspace, I moved here in August last year after being in another shared space that lacked the vibrancy and community that WOTSO offers!
- What’s the one thing about running your own business that you wish you’d known at the start?
To have an underpinning goal and vision and make sure that all other business decisions are aligned with that.
- If You Could Have One Extra Thing In The Workspace, What Would It Be?
Just more of the same! More weekly events and games that would involve around the networking element and finding different synergies with work colleagues.
