“I See The Light!”

you know what i think
You know what I think…

We don’t know enough!

We are totally fragmented.

We are totally isolated.

We are totally without data.

We are totally blind.

What do you know about ‘your’ Locations Worldwide?

we only see the tip in our own backyards what are the trends
We only see the ‘tip’…in our own backyards. What are the ‘trends’?
  • 8,000 Centers
  • Asia is ahead
  • Europe is catching up
  • UK has too much $$
  • NA is consolidating
  • Latin America is …?
  • “0” net center growth
    • Landlord exchange

It’s what you DON’T see that Counts.

why 0 growth seems wrong
Why “0” Growth…seems wrong
  • “Follow the leader”
  • There is WS growth
  • Artificial “High”
  • Real Growth this year.
    • Consolidation effect
      • Supports pricing
  • VO, the new – old thing
  • What will the next generation look like?

If you don’t lead, the view never changes.

what does abcn look like
What does ABCN look like?
  • ABCN 600 centers, 35 countries
    • 15% external growth
    • 10% internal growth
    • 1,000 centers, 50 countries, 24 months
  • Regus 750 centers, 50 countries
    • 15% overall growth
    • 1,000 centers, 50 countries, 24 months
what will the future bring
What will the future bring?
  • Only two real players globally
  • Only two able to serve the ‘corporates’
  • Only two able to impact market pricing
  • Only two able to ‘create’ new products
  • Only two able to ‘establish standards’
  • Only two able to extend their brands

It’s not the big that eat the small, it’s the fast that eat the slow!

is regus is friend or foe
Is Regus is ‘friend or foe’?

Competitors or Colleagues?

  • Are we constructive or destructive forces?
  • What can we do if we all band together at ABCN?
  • What should we do with Regus?
    • Anything?

Murky water makes it hard to tell a friend.

i had lunch with mark yesterday here is what he said
I had lunch with Mark yesterday… here is what he said
  • Regus is investing in its own infrastructure in the UK and elsewhere.
    • Working or replacement of old IT systems
    • Upgrading marketing systems
    • Expanding sales force
    • Working on becoming more ‘client focused’.
  • Sounded good to me….but,
  • Mark also suggested that other operators were ‘price cutting’.
    • We said we heard the same about Regus
    • Said Regus was ‘holding firm’ & increasing in most markets.
where is regus focus and where are we
Where is Regus’ focus and where are we?
  • Regus – GROWTH in WS and top line
    • Acquisitions at 30% arbitrage
    • More centralization
      • UK Staff all fired last week…same ‘old’ central staff takes over.
  • ABCN – Growth in WS and new products… “bottom line”.
    • Faster, leaner model that is fully distributed.
    • Limited capital, limited commitment by Members
      • Must change for success

Sometimes ‘Style’ is more than enough.

How will ABCN’s Members succeed together?
  • Commit to common goals
  • Establish standards
  • Get rid of ‘the box’…
  • Here’s where we will concentrate…

The Next “BIG” Thing“Industry Transparency”

We don’t need no stinking WEB BROKERS… or do we?

what is transparency
What is “transparency”?
  • Industries should learn from one another.
    • We think the Serviced Office and the Travel industries can do just that.
  • You need to ‘see everything’ in one place
    • All parties



OBC Model limits Visibility

  • Create an investment fund for Members.
  • Have had offers from ‘top 10’ firms.
  • We now know what we need to do…
    • Turning “Upside Down” isn’t rolling over.
    • Here’s what I mean.

Sometimes you’re the windshield… …Sometimes you’re the bug!

so what s upside down
So, “What’s Upside Down”?
  • What’s your ‘revenue ratio’ of Space to Services?
    • 60/40, 65/35, 70/30?
    • Most common is 65/35, and going down.
      • Declining telecom
      • Declining Services in general
  • Feel like things are slipping a little?

Make sure you stay connected!

is upside down right side up
Is Upside Down, Right Side up?
  • What should your ratios be?
    • 30/70
      • Why? Turns you into a ‘non-cyclical service company’.
  • How? Focus on:
      • VO…the really big one.
      • IT…second and rising
      • HR…hardest to do
      • Vendor Programs… profitable and easy
      • Accounting Standards… the easiest and fastest.
