If you feel your corporate workshops are missing the mark, it could very well be because the venues you’re using just aren’t as inspiring as your tip-top presentation.

What you’re really after is a venue where you can get creative with your clients. Good news! Hire Space has got your back. We’ve got heaps of studios, hubs and rooms where you can coach a class of eager colleagues. Here are five spots in London that are bound to bring out the best in you and your out-of-the-office audience.

1. 4th Floor Studios

Button at 4th Floor Studios In the heart of cool, creative East London, 4th Floor Studios is spot on for any workshops you may have in the pipeline. Whether you’re coaching work or life skills to your subjects, the light and spacious surroundings are sure to get the creative juices flowing.

You can opt to hire one of two studios for small groups, or take over the whole of 4th Floor Studios for workshops likely to draw a crowd. The space comes complete with a projector and whiteboards, and for those all-important break times, you’ll find a pool table, darts board and even a punchbag – although we doubt you’ll be needing to ‘de-stress’ when this space takes such darn good care of you.

2. Lumiere London

Brighten up any away day at the gorgeous Lumiere of London Bridge. The light and spacious studio space can accommodate any size of group, from mini workshop teams to large gatherings of up to 65 in its boardroom area. And how could participants not be impressed by the high ceilings - complete with beautiful wooden beams - exposed brick walls, a skylight and wonderfully twee furnishings. And with inspiring buildings like Borough Market and the magnificent Shard just moments away, we suspect your colleagues will be bright-eyed and bushy-tailed for any event here.

3. The Hub at MeWe360

The Hub at MeWe360 combines a spacious room with bursts of colour from modern furnishings. It’s housed within a shared workspace, so is ideal if you’re hosting workshops for any budding entrepreneurs, for example. And the views across central London’s gardens are nothing short of inspiring.

4. Studio Spaces E1

For those larger and perhaps more creative workshops and conferences, how about Studio Spaces E1? Since this Shadwell event space used to be a nightclub, we reckon you'll have your audience raving about any sort of workshop held here. It now comes fully kitted out with state of the art equipment, and can be divided up into more intimate areas for smaller coaching sessions. And best of all, there's a rather swish lounge and kitchen area for that vital 'break out' time.

5. The Soho Collective

Button at The Soho Collective The Soho Collective covers all bases when it comes to appealing to an audience. Its Theatreland location makes it a prime spot for drama workshops; its architect-designed interior is a dream backdrop for any sort of design course; and its Soho-centric vibe makes it ideal for new media and creative conferences. There’s space enough for 20 seated attendees, or if you want to keep pupils on their toes, there’s room for 60 standing eager beavers.

So now we’ve found you the dream venues, there’ll be absolutely no snoozing at the back of the class. At Hire Space, we’re all about offering inspiring venues fit for any purpose, so why not stop by the website for even more options for a workshop like no other.
