My guest today, Carlos Gonçalves, has been in the office business center and coworking industry in Lisbon, Portugal for 17 years and is the CEO and founder of Avila Spaces, the most award-winning business space in Portugal. Over these 17 years, more than 1000 companies have chosen to work from Avila and allow their employees to work in this shared business space in both free desk and fixed desk plans. Carlos is an expert at adapting to the rapidly changing needs of his clients and by the easing of the pandemic restrictions in Portugal, he has found his space so busy that he is actually expanding to a second location for the very first time. Carlos and I talk about the future of work and the explosive growth of remote work and how it will continue to change the industry going forward.

There now seems to be a new normal for how to work online and Carlos gives us a great example, with Avila Spaces, of how to make new spaces comfortable and refreshing for people to work in. We may no longer go to the same physical space to work as our coworkers but that doesn’t mean that we can’t find great spaces to get our work done away from home. Join me for this interesting case study on the future of work with Carlos.
