"A Heart Space in the City "

    April 2019

    I connected initially with the ethos around the Common and have been a member for about a year. It a great workspace and place to meet clients and colleagues. I have recorded videos there and ran two public events for my The Spirited Business Network.Its a fantastic space that is so cool and groovy, i could live there! All the amenities you need in an environment of care and collaboration which is mirroring the essence of what i believe we all need to be doing in business . Join the membership and connect with other changemakers wanting to make a difference

    "Incredible space with lovely staff"

      April 2019

      The Common had a welcoming feel to it for the event I attended. It was spacious, yet welcoming. It has a New York loft feel which I enjoyed. The staff were all very accommodating and kind which overall left a positive impression of the space on me.

      "அற்புதமான இடம்! [Wonderful Place!]"

        April 2019

        Book this place if you're running an event or a workshop! I arrived at The Common on a Saturday morning around 9am, to attend The Sales Mastery workshop. Walked up the stairs, around the hall and in through suite 7's door and had the feeling of being in a creative, comfortable and motivating space! This place attracts some incredible minds, awesome people, making it a powerful social community to vibe with. Board room was excellent space for meetings, reliable WiFi and flowing Air Conditioning. If you're ever there.. take time to look up and spot the crane! I love the high ceilings xo!!! Had the wonderful feeling of being at home, in our #Mansion, on the hillside. Spacious Kitchen area, rest rooms were so comfy lol if you're up there alone, it feels like a snug creative spot all on it's own. They even provide alkaline water! I drank it.. so refreshing. #ThankYou #TheCommon!

        "Fantastic space and even better community"

          April 2019

          The Common is a fantastic place to be productive, creative, and bounce ideas off other people. The working environment is really nice, and the community of likeminded entrepreneurs is a breath of fresh air. It has all the facilities you would want, and much more. I would highly recommend The Common to anyone looking for a co-working space and/or entrepreneur community.

            April 2019

            We required a large meeting, coworking space, and a board room and had thought we had things lined up at GridAKL, but things fell through at the last minute so I had called The Common at the last minute because we needed a large space for a weekend seminar - to seat around 10-20 people for a high end sales and motivational conference that we had already booked tickets for. Within 20 mins of discussing with Debra and Jade, they had organised the entire workshop venue, with chairs, mics, 2 large TVs, laptop, and the space for us to actually go ahead, and saved us from having to cancel the event. The meeting / conference space was far superior to any other venue I have visited, and the flexibility and kindness shown from the entire team was remarkable. We did not require the bar staff / bar area, but it was available if we had needed that. Parking (unlike many other incubators in Auckland) is easy, cheap and we had no problems with some of the venue members catching buses in for the conference. The venue is well setup and has exposed brick and kauri beams, so it just feels like a really modern Silicon Valley style office. The area is ideal for product or company launches, or even photo shoots just because the lighting and venue is a feature in and of itself. They have a workshop area for conferences - I think it would seat around 40 (?) we had seating for around 10-20 and that seemed to work fine in the space (the furniture is modular, so you can setup tables or different group / seating options if required). The middle area is a shared / ad hoc area which we actually used the next day, for a sales campaign for a team of 8 people. We had been curious / worried if we were making too much noise, but again, unlike other venues, there is meant to be some energy / work noise, however, the way it is setup - one end has quiet space, (with soundproof calling or meeting areas), and the middle area can be a bit more noisy without causing impact to others working there. For any incubator / start-up space, to me there needs to be a great community, and friendly vibe, as well as the functional features and setup configurations so that there is flexibility and I can host customer visits, as well as different dynamic work spaces. We also used the conference room on the west wing, which was amazing, and we took advantage of some breakout areas while we had several different meetings / training sessions. To me, a venue that can provide that much flexibility and can provide all of these major services within a few minutes of the conversation, is that sort of company / space that I need to be associated with. No one else was as helpful, easy to deal with nor able to host us at that last minute. The tech was something also that I was very impressed by. I have never setup for a conference without having a number of technical issues (maybe no HDMI cable, sound system / mics not working etc), but everything was flawless. Everything was simple to use, and just worked. All the equipment is top of the line, the furniture looks great. The big TVs are really good quality. I have heard of Debra's reputation (Founder) for many years, and I have had many random conversations with other entrepreneurs who had shared that she is one of the kindest, most giving, clever and organised people they know. Her reputation was very well established as a business coach, and I have been hearing about The Common from multiple people and not realised quite how amazing the venue is. I would happily / proudly discuss this in more detail, because what they have put together really is incredible, and I am genuinely annoyed that I had not taken the advice of my other entrepreneur friends, and taken the time to visit / signup earlier. We will be moving in and using the ad-hoc space from next week onwards, as the entire office, meeting, workshop, boardroom, calling booths, soundproof meeting pod areas and services is just incredible.

            "Outstanding location and co-working community "

              April 2019

              We live The Commons both as a working space and an event space. We previously had our own offices but we were hardly there as we either were at clients offices, in cafes or working from home. Now we have a space where we come and go and can hit the group running. The facilities are excellent. We often book the boardrooms for client meetings and the technology works every time and the location is perfect (none of the hassle of the city road works). As for running events we now only use this location in Auckland as the team run them so seamlessly.

              "Th common review"

                April 2019

                The atmosphere is amazing. Everyone is open and friendly but also very focused on their own mission. It’s an inspiring environment to be in because while we’re all working on something different, we’re there to get things done. The wifi’s fantastic which I think is so important because bad wifi wastes so much time and here it’s just so streamline so it’s literally the last thing on my mind. It’s also right next to some amazing places for lunch with a raw vegan place next door and a cafe on the corner with great poached eggs and even better service. All that being said, the bathrooms are quite possibly the highlight. They’re beautiful.

                        April 2019

                        The Common is a great shared work space near the CBD and cafes. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and the business people in the space are all motivated and inspired in business. Events are relevant, helpful, inspiring and useful for business owners. The amenities and facilities offered are good value for the membership fee. Definitely recommend for small business owners.

                          April 2019

                          Since day one, The Common has always gone over and above to deliver the very best in service and has a genuine invested interest in the success of startups using their space. The Common is not only a great co-working space but also has a library, a big event hall, and of course a kitchen that is great for preparing coffee for your next meeting. If you need a more confidential setting you can book a meeting room. Staff is always very helpful and friendly. This is a wonderful place to share, grow, experience and upstart your business. I can recommend The Common without exception.

                            When I arrived at the common I was instantly greeted by this sense of calm and at the same time I sense of motivation. Hard to describe with words but you’ll definitely feel it too upon visiting the common!! They know what their values are and are very clear in bringing those values to light.

                              April 2019

                              The Common is one of the coolest places in Auckland to get inspired, get working, and get-together. They've got great co-lab tables fostering easy communication, as well as quiet areas and space for remote conferencing. I love how involved they are supporting entrepreneurs with a continuous stream of worthwhile events in their event space which make an easy transition from focus time to social networking in my visits.
