Co-Founder Agora RDM
In 2012 Mike LaRosa successfully escaped corporate America and launched Wayfarer Advisory Group, offering consulting services for B2B sales & business development, marketing, sponsorship and event planning strategy. By the end of 2013, he’d become a wayfarer (literally) living on the road while working for clients such as Google, Smithsonian Enterprises and LivingSocial. With a distributed team and constant travel, he was always working out of noisy cafes or hotel lobbies in search for space to be productive.
Until, of course, he discovered the many benefits of coworking. Far more than just workspace, power outlets and WiFi, since 2013, he has researched and studied an array of shared workspaces, leading him to visit over 500 locations in 31 countries. A highly sought after consultant, clients such as Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, The Second City and JLL have turned to him and the team at Agora RDM to provide expert industry knowledge and know how from design to operations, staffing/recruitment and marketing. He has spoken at events such as Coworking Europe, Coworking Africa, Coworking Unconference Asia, GCUC and Nomad Summit. You can follow him on Coworkaholic, a blog he founded in 2015 dedicated to the location independent/frequent flyer lifestyle.
