117: The Future of Flexible Office: A Deep Dive with Mark Gilbreath

Mark Gilbreath has one of the most comprehensive vantage points of the Flexible Office Industry. As the CEO of LiquidSpace, he serves casual flex office users, corporate occupier users, SMB users, operators with space to offer and landlords with space to offer. Rarely at his home office in Idaho, Mark is constantly in the flow of our quickly-evolving industry. 

In this episode, he shares his perspective on the evolution of the flexible office industry, the impact of the WeWork IPo on the perception of the industry, a demand forecast on the corporate occupier and a look at where we're headed.

Mark poses a few strategic questions to me and we discuss the supply/demand perspective; what does the playing field look like for new entrants competing with the likes of WeWork and Industrious? The Impact of WeWork and landlord participation on smaller operators and what emerging operators need most.
