Bournemouth’s original pop-up coworking club – The Cowork Collective – is relaunching.

It has a new town centre venue and new small business workshops.

The workshops are practical.

You will learn how to do something, such as the basics of Google Keyword Planner, or make an action plan, develop your branding and a whole range of other tropics.

Emma Page, Director of Words by Page, said: “There are no speeches or sales pitches at the workshops.

“I wanted to create a resource that helps fight isolation and offers the support small business owners need to learn how to grow their businesses online.

“We have partnered with the Marsham Court Hotel – as a family-run business, they fit our ethos perfectly.

“Free parking and a newly refurbished business lounge (The Snug) make this location the perfect place to get stuff done.

“Today, August 7, I am opening membership to all small business owners and freelancers in the BCP region.

“There is an introductory offer that saves between £25 and £180 on annual membership fees until September 6.

“People can attend events without being a member (£15 per three-hour Pop Up and £30 per lunch-time workshop.)

“We have the entry level Tier 1 annual membership aimed at the micro business owner.

“You get free access to up to eight pop-up coworking mornings per month for a price that helps cover the cost of the website (usually £50 per annum, currently £25 per annum).

“Access for all is at the heart of the Cowork Collective.

“Our Tier 2 membership includes the monthly workshops, which include a light lunch.

“It also offers all the benefits of Tier 1.  (Usually £35 pcm, currently £25 pcm).

“Tier 3 membership is for local business owners who need digital marketing support as well as coworking space and training. (Usually £50pcm, currently £35pcm).”
