Egg Painting Competition

, , , , ,

We’d like to thank everyone so much for coming down and joining us to paint some Eggs.

We’ve discovered that it’s actually a very nice way to de-stress. Very relaxing and creative. And no, you don’t have to be an artist to enjoy painting an egg.

Here is a Gallery of all of the eggs! All of them are great!

But of course, there can only be one Winner! (At least this time)

Congrats Puneet!

The Oxford Way

Back in September 2017, Oxford Properties conducted a customer satisfaction and loyalty survey. Many clients took the time to let Oxford know whether they were meeting or exceeding service expectations. To celebrate the fantastic results Oxford have created a visual representation of this commitment via “The Oxford Way” video:

We love being part of WaterPark Place!

Here’s some events they’ve held in the building over the past year:

Coworking

Any size company can benefit from flexible, low cost workspace solutions that don’t require a long-term commitment. Above and beyond the scope of traditional business incubators, our Coworking spaces aren’t just for startups with high-growth potential.

Coworking boosts your ideas and builds your business

Coworking is more than just a desk at an office that is not your own. It is a community that generates innovation and provides people with access to like-minded individuals and business solution services. With small businesses becoming easier and easier to build from the ground up, coworking space creates an environment where collaboration and mutual energy can manifest itself in a way to build your ideas. The concept of bringing your laptop to the local Starbucks to work on a project has evolved into a practice where the coworking space IS your daily office routine for growing your business.

Coworking spaces offer flexibility with regards to location and the commitment that comes from leasing a space for yourself. A temporary desk and a virtual office can give your business both credibility and the perception that will attract people to your brand. These services also take the pressure off the administrative details and allow you to focus solely on your startup.

Many coworking locations, such as The Rostie Group, can also provide other business amenities such as meeting rooms and lounge areas for times when you are hosting a client.

The landscape of business continues to shift towards customisation and coworking provides people with the options to suit their needs. Whether it be one week or an extended residency at a desk, coworking represents a change in how people conduct business and build the ideas of the future.

Recap and Photos: Lunch ‘N’ Learn with Paul Hellyer

, , , , , , ,

The Pacific room filled with summer sunlight and those excited to understand what Paul Hellyer’s life work means for the present and future of our society.

Engaging, educational and dotted with anecdotes Paul Hellyer took us on a history lesson, different from the kind we learned in school. Conspiracies, secret governments, global bank programs created without the public knowing, and the question of who really runs the world? And what does this mean for us?

Discussion and questions ensued about some of Hellyer’s political experience and current projects. He touched on power and the financial situation of Canada and the global understanding of wealth. Pamphlets were distributed explaining the Canadian bank system and how everything changed in 1974.  Check out CanadianBankReformers.ca for more information.
