What I do: As chief of marketing at Spacebase, I spread the word about our meeting- and workshop-venue platform to as many meeting and event planners as possible. Our online booking website is based on a person-to-person marketplace, and the more people we get using our service, the better it becomes for renters and space providers alike.

How I got here: During my time as a business consultant, I spent around 200 nights a year sleeping and working in hotels. These boring, dusty meeting spaces were all the same, and I slowly began to realize work didn’t have to be that way. My friend and now co-founder Julian Jost was as tired of these outdated and unstimulating meetings as I was, so we teamed up to found Spacebase in 2014 and harnessed sharing economy power to put creative, inspiring meeting and workshop spaces on the market.
