We offer boardroom memberships at three locations across the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne.
What is a boardroom?
For meetings between VIPs, chairing boards, steering committees and general company leadership. Boardrooms are spaces that are shaped to provide easy view of every member in attendance and facilitate an organic transfer of ideas.
From the simple, roundtable style design, to deluxe seating and elegant presentation, boardrooms can help you create the image your business wants to portray.
Why a boardroom?
When meeting with more than just four or five people and requiring a space that isn’t audience-to-speaker focused like a seminar room, boardrooms work perfectly.
Enjoy the personal space of your own seat while in the presence of the rest of your peers and discuss matters at hand.
Up-to-date conference calling pods in our boardrooms allows you to invite members to contribute by proxy. One can even do so by using our video conference-calling equipment to invite members to be there almost in person.
All the while, enjoy comfortable, leather seating, noise-cancellation for privacy, seamless computer or device connectivity and, in our Waterman suite, even have access to a side lounge area to mingle after a meeting, breakout areas for intervals and outdoor spaces for a breath of fresh air.
Is a boardroom right for me?
If you’re meeting with more than just a couple of people or have VIPs coming in to discuss important matters, boardrooms are perfect for you.
They’ve also been used extensively for:
- Training high level employees and associates
- Legal meetings across the table
- Monthly or quarterly update meetings
- Welcoming interstate or international guests with catering
- Planning and brainstorming meetings
- Creative development meetings where you need space to think
Given all the inclusions, there is little you can’t use a boardroom for!

Frequently Asked Questions
The default minimum term on our dedicated desks is 6 months, but just like all our products, you are able to full customize your contract terms to suit your business, including reducing the minimum term down to 1 moth. Speak with your leasing executive for more information.
The beauty about calling a Waterman centre home is the abundance of common area and shared space you get so you’re never restricted to work from one space. This means you’ll have access to kitchen facilities, business lounges, break out spaces and more as a part of your package, and the ability to book private meeting & event spaces as you require them.
A dedicated desk in our coworking space is perfect for one person with plenty of space, but there isn’t much space for two! The good news is that your desk is allocated to you only, so you don’t have to worry about sharing.
Your Dedicated Desk comes with both an ergonomic office chair so you’re never forced to sit on the floor and a lockable storage unit (attached to your desk) so you can store your valuables without worry! You also have multiple power points, physical signage printed and an access pass all included in your set-up fee.
Dedicated Desks at Narre Warren currently do not have lockable storage units.
Our friendly leasing team will discuss the best seating arrangement with you based on your needs and our availability.
Of course! All dedicated desks come with parking however depending on the centre, the type of parking included will vary. In addition to this all desks come with unlimited ultra-fast Wi-Fi with current speeds of up to 1000/1000Mbps so you won’t need an ethernet port!
We pride ourselves on the variety of our business community and the collaborative feel in our centres. That means at any given time you could be working alongside any number of local and global businesses that use our coworking spaces from a varying range of industries. Professional services, those in creative fields and everything in between operate from our co-working area.
The co-working area changes on a day to day basis! Some days there is a real buzz in our coworking area and other days everyone is super focused. If this is a concern for you, we encourage you to book a tour and come into the centre to get a feel for it yourself. Regardless, we do have dedicated quiet coworking areas where you can really buckle down and work in peace if you feel the main coworking area isn’t too your liking. That’s the beauty of flexible workspaces!
Included in your Dedicated Desk package is an access pass which grants your 24/7 access to all Waterman centres so you can work where you want. Our centres are also staffed during business hours (Mon-Fri 9am to 5pm) but we still recommend you carry your access pass so you can get around with ease.
Included in your Dedicated Desk package is a physical mail box which you can use to have all your business mail delivered to. Our friendly service team will sort and deliver your mail as it arrives and place it in your locked mail box.
You will be billed on a monthly basis via direct debit for your Dedicated Desk as well as any additional spend (such as meeting room bookings, printing, etc) you may accrue throughout the month.
Included in your package are basic reception services (such as mail sorting, meeting and greeting of your clients and a land line number with call forwarding to your mobile) but all Waterman packages come with access to upgrade and get even more value out of your monthly plan such as a virtual receptionist, printing, wireless handsets, server rack space and other technical services.
As you’ve probably noticed by now, we’re all about community! That means we encourage each and every member to attend the myriad of community events and online resources we put on throughout the year to help you connect, collaborate and grow with likeminded business people.
