I … booked a meeting room for a workshop across two days. The location was fabulous, with modern and bright rooms. Was a great price considering it was central Sydney. A couple of lovely cafes walking distance and to grab snacks for the days work.

Since Collective Purpose commenced operations in 2014 I have been a frequent visitor and client at the hub – both attending functions and workshops and also using rooms for various meetings and workshops. As a consultant doing a lot of facilitation … I find the facilities terrific to work in and the staff are always very responsive and helpful.
