About this event

An office or a co-working space is not just a place to come and do work; it's much more than that. In many of the world’s finest homes, a space known as The Great Room forms the heart of the property. It’s an area that lends itself to quiet discussion, moments of thought and study but also serves as a place for meeting, socialising and entertaining. That is the vision of The Great Room becoming the modern-day version of a place where people get together.

The Great Room was founded in 2016 and embarked on a mission to change the way people work, meet and socialize. And done just that they have, now with multiple locations across Singapore, Bangkok and Hong Kong.

So how did an ex-banker turned serial entrepreneur see an opportunity in the market to carve out a niche in such a crowded field? What is the future of work going to look like after the COVID-19 pandemic and how has The Great Room needed to adjust and adapt to prepare for the 'New Normal' we will be living in? What opportunities may exist to expand in the future?

Join us on Thursday, July 30th at 7:30pm SGT as we explore these topics and more during our virtual fireside chat with Jaelle Ang, CEO & Co-Founder of The Great Room.
