“Kevin Whelan is invaluable to our business. His strategic expertise and depth of industry knowledge have taken us to a new level.
Kevin has transformed our marketing from a hodgepodge of ideas and loosely related activities to a machine of repeatable, measurable processes.
He is a part of every major decision we make and his opinion carries an enormous amount of weight. I can’t imagine not having Kevin’s support as we prepare to scale Launch.”
—Mike Kriel, CEO, Launch Workplaces
“We engaged Kevin during a very difficult / pivotal time in our business. Covid lockdowns were in place, revenue dropped off a cliff, and our marketing team was unfortunately downsized to one person.
Kevin brought order & leadership to the chaos, gave our one person marketing team the direction and confidence needed to succeed, and ultimately helped to pull our company through one of the most difficult times we’ve ever experienced in our 10 year history.
Thanks to Kevin, we’re now back to growing our marketing team (the right way) with a clear vision for the future of the department and the right systems in place to be successful.”
—Nick Clark, Common Desk [Acquired by WeWork]
“Since hiring Kevin to oversee our marketing two years ago, we’ve grown from two to five locations with a 285% increase in monthly recurring revenue (MRR) while maintaining a 3.5% average marketing cost during that period.”
—Kane Willmott, Owner @ iQ Offices, Toronto, Canada [Case Study]
When I teamed up with Kevin Whelan from Everspaces, I knew we had found a partner who embodied the qualities of an expert in his field, and also someone we could genuinely enjoy working with. Kevin is friendly, professional, organized, and extremely knowledgeable, making the entire process of developing our coworking space much easier.
With Kevin’s insights and guidance, we achieved impressive results, including exceeding our target occupancy rate at launch and consistently improving our KPIs. One thing that really stood out to me was Kevin’s ability to fully understand our vision and goals, which allowed us to extend our scope of work beyond SOMO Cowork to cover all marketing aspects of our mixed use development – SOMO Village.
Overall, our experience working with Kevin is fantastic. He is always approachable, collaborative, and responsive throughout the entire process, which makes everything much smoother. If you’re looking to start a successful coworking space, we highly recommend Kevin.
Maciej Plich, Co-Founder & CEO, SOMO Cowork
We were struggling a lot to regain occupancy at any decent speed after Covid, despite putting a fair bit of time and money into different advertising campaigns. We feared that there may be some fundamental problems with our product, location or size which meant that achieving our target occupancies would not be possible for some time.
The results have been excellent. Working with you has given us the tools to [succeed] in a way we certainly wouldn’t have done otherwise. Our occupancy has finally reached close to target levels, our marketing budget is focussed on the most efficient methods, our product types are streamlined and easier to manage, and we have been able to clearly prioritise the important tasks around sales and marketing to progress our business effectively.
You’re a pleasure to work with and it’s been great to build a relationship together over these months – we very much hope to work together again in the future, and would whole heartedly recommend you to any workspaces thinking about engaging you.

“After implementing your suggested optimizations, the website is now performing 3x better in terms of conversions. Inquiries have increased from 100 total inquiries to a total of 280 per month.”
–Lucas Seyhun, The Farm Soho, New York, USA
“I heard Kevin on a podcast several months back, and was drawn to his commonsense structured approach. He delivers on the impression I got. The success I see with other members of the Everspace community encourages me to move from picking and choosing tips, to buying into the complete Everspace system. Being a member has given me the confidence to do more of the marketing myself, with access to Kevin’s experience, tools, systems, and resources to guide me along the way.”
—Mark Eaton, Owner @ The Corner Coworking, Alberta, Canada
“Kevin helped me get a grasp on what KPIs I should be tracking and also helped me to identify lost opportunities and leaks in my sales funnel. He has also been instrumental in helping me refine and focus my overall messaging. Kevin is a wealth of information when it comes to marketing in the coworking industry and I highly recommend working with him.”
—Sarah Athanas, Owner @ Groundwork, Massachusetts, USA
“I was introduced to Kevin and Everspaces through a webinar I was on. Immediately was drawn to the clear and concise manner in which he delivered his value proposition. Made advertising for coworking seem simple.
Truth of the matter is that he breaks things down into bite-size chunks and we improve a little bit each week. He holds me accountable to what I commit to doing. Best part is that he makes it easy to understand and implement.
Since I started working with Kevin, we immediately increased our occupancy. We also were able to focus on building sustainable systems to make marketing repeatable.
There’s always a concern before you work with someone that they’re just another person selling snake oil. Once I had a call with Kevin, I realized that he really had value and knowledge to bring to the table. Made it a no brainer to work with him.”
—Josh Mente, Owner @ Co-Balt Workspace, Baltimore, USA
“Kevin has been an incredible mentor and incremental in helping me market my space. As an owner/operator I have to wear a lot of hats. Marketing has always been overwhelming with a lot of moving pieces. Kevin does a great job of slowing things down and really making you dig deep to give your space a voice, a story. He makes you do the dirty work because he believes in the value of owning your business and narrative behind it. Proven by his own successful business and message. I’m excited to dive deeper into all functions of marketing with Kevin as I value the insight he gives and I know that I’m in incredible hands to help me, and my business thrive!”
—Matt Irvin, Owner/Operator @ Innerstate Cowork, Menlo Park, USA
“I have been following Kevin’s emails for over a year and always took notes from what he was saying as it really related to me and marketing my coworking space.
Last year, I was lucky enough to have a 1:1 with him which was very valuable and helped change some sections on my website that are now showing results. I am now a member [of Everspaces Nation] and find the topics to be very beneficial and also allows me to go back over a topic if it is something I am specifically working on at the time.
Being based in Australia, I have still found it invaluable and have been able to participate in some of the calls but if not I can always catch up and ask any questions in the Slack channel that are current for me in regard to marketing.”
—Samantha Davies, Owner @ Platypus Coworking, Ballarat, Australia
I worked with Kevin when I was the in-house marketing manager at a premier coworking space. Working with Kevin was truly a delight and he really knows the industry well. The best part about working together was that it really felt like we were working TOGETHER. Kevin helped plan and guide our strategy without bulldozing my ideas.
