Community Manager Spotlight
Community Managers play a key role in the day-to-day operations of each Venture X location. Not only do they cater to the unique needs of every community member, but they also keep things well-organized behind the scenes so that each Venture X functions as a comfortable and collaborative space. As the Community Manager of Venture X, Pleasanton, Meagan Barker brings a unique skill set to the job. A graduate student in Human Resource Management, she brings a new perspective to the location.
As a recent college graduate who’s continuing her studies into human resources, Meagan had lots of opportunities to choose from, so why did she choose Venture X? In her own words: “The co-working industry appeals to me because you get to know, learn from, and interact with many different types of people and industries all within the same office. I love when members collaborate together and value each other’s feedback as that is the fun part of coworking!”
Collaboration is what sets Venture X apart from other coworking spaces. We design each location so that community members can choose from shared workspaces and private offices. They’re free to work in a variety of open areas, or can reserve private conference rooms as-needed. This facilitates great communication between coworkers, and even between different businesses.
WHAT DOES HER DAY LOOK LIKE?
Community Managers are responsible for a wide range of tasks, so their routine never gets stale. Meagan is always working on something new to improve the community experience in Pleasanton. She reflects: “My daily duties are typically never the same as it depends on what we have going on that day.” A few of the valuable tasks she performs include:
- Networking and meeting community leaders, business owners, and prospects.
