OfficeXpats “Gurus@Noon”: to encourage more collaboration and connections between OXp Members on a regular basis, OfficeXpats is experimenting with a new structure for Tuesdays@noon. Instead of the typical up-in-front-of-the-class instruction, OXp is putting out a call forOfficeXperts or gurus on a number of themes and asking them to “hold court” for one Tuesday@noon in the Event room at their own table – like a “help desk.” Each Tuesday showcases gurus of similar expertise, utilizing a coworking-friendly concept called “coopetition” ( Yet another great reason to consider a membership at OfficeXpats!
