EVENTS

Our vibrant and versatile work centres transform into incredible event spaces, from full-on networking conferences to relaxed breakfasts for our members. Here's what's happening these days.

 

Thursday June 6th, 6 – 8 p.m.

With the warm weather approaching we welcome all Workplace One members to help us celebrate summer and officially open the two amazing patio spaces at our new Peter Street location! There will be freshly grilled burgers prepared by Burger Drops, a new pop up venture from Gregory Bourolias, sous chef of Aloette restaurant, plus a thirst-quenching beer & cider bar hosted by Collective Arts brewery. Take a tour of the new space and view the inspiring artwork that we will be displayed throughout the centre. Be sure to register for your tickets before they’re gone! Save Your Spot - RSVP Here

Eating well can be a struggle during your busy work day, but we’ve got you covered this new year! We’ve started working with our fellow Toronto based friends at Platterz to help bring great food right into the office! Your Workplace One community manager can help connect you with a Platterz catering manager to meet the range of dietary needs of your team for your next boardroom meeting or staff event so you have one less thing to worry about. Are you a coworker or work independently? Keep your eyes out for our upcoming lunch pop ups right in our Workplace One Kitchen/lounge where we will be featuring some great local restaurants from the Platterz portfolio.

Our partner, True True Pizza, brings a delectable selection of pizza every month for all to enjoy. It's quickly become a member-favourite.

This past winter we hosted our first professionally-lead mediation workshop at our Bay-Bloor location. It went over so well with our members that we are extending this great program to more Workplace One centres this spring season. The best part is that no meditation experience is required to attend these classes. Wondering what to expect from these sessions? We asked instructor Tara Good to describe her approach to the class: “Meditation is one of the best ways to connect with the self, beyond the stories of the mind and the experiences that our life may be handing us. Through the use of breath, visualization and relaxation techniques, learn to create an expanded awareness of your life, and connect to that part of you you know exists”.

Our meditation classes are open to all Workplace One members at all locations. All classes run from 3-4pm.

As summer approaches, our thoughts turn to cold drinks — so we are excited to announce that we are partnering with Collective Arts Brewing to keep the Workplace One beer taps flowing. This inspiring brewery is “dedicated to promoting artists and raising creative consciousness through the sociability of craft beer” — did you know each beer can features limited-edition works of art? We’re loving that this brewery has a portfolio as diverse and creative as the artists they profile. Our first tap feature is “Lunch Money”: a straight up, easy drinking ale brewed exclusively with German Magnum and Centennial hops to fuel your creativity. Crisp, refreshing and well-balanced. Not only we will be exploring this breweries well-crafted beer, but we will also be helping you start off your May long weekend right by hosting a tasting of the brands amazing cider line up! Be sure to come out to your centre’s cider tasting for a fun happy hour and learn about the craft and process of making this perfect warm weather libation.

One of the things we love about each of our centres is the diversity of companies that work under the same roof — it isn’t far-fetched to have a creative agency next door to a blockchain-based tech company. These two distinct industries may seem unrelated at a glance, however the closer we look at them there are countless ways in which they are interconnected. That is why we are excited to team up with Workplace Member “Quantstamp” to host a meetup about how current blockchain technology is disrupting the creative world. Come out to this fun interactive night of networking and learn how this technology is enabling artists and creatives to collaborate in new ways, in new media and the innovative approaches they can take to make money off of their content.

Join Workplace One and Artist Jenny Tellier for "The Session". In this workshop you will be guided through a still life drawing session with the aim to shift from linear and logical thinking into intuitive and insightful thought patterns. Linear thinking dominates our everyday thoughts as we make decisions to move our businesses forward. If you’ve been struggling with blocks in your biz, this workshop will make the space needed for creative shifts in perspective as making art is one of the only activities that shifts the brain completely into the right hemisphere. Thinking with your right brain can then allow problems to be seen and grasped in unique ways. In this workshop you will learn simple drawing techniques that can easily be integrated in a daily routine to maintain optimal productivity.

Join us for this workshop and then enjoy some refreshments and networking in our Queen West lounge.

All materials provided. No art experience required.

Join us for a fun 30 minute “munch and learn” where the knowledgeable team from Tweed will be hashing out information about the cannabis plant, cannabinoids, ingestion vs. inhalation, safe consumption and lots of other interesting info regarding the psychoactive plant.
