:: DESCRIPTION :: 800 square foot brightly lit two room office suite furnished with upscale and comfortable furniture and art: classic sofas, lots of art, mid century modern chill vibe. Included are wi-fi, workspaces, kitchenette, internet, complimentary parking in lot, 24-hour access. This is an adults only space--no children or pets. Main floor, handicap accessible. CONFERENCE ROOM / LOBBY (the one you enter the suite through) is set up as a training / conference room, casual meeting room or lobby, with a large wall sized window for beautiful natural light. Sofa, round conference table seats four easily, 4 x 8 whiteboard, internet, wi-fi, plenty of seating and space for a meet and greet, small training, online training, or breakout room. The room as seen in the pictures seats 6 to 8: 4 (table), 4 (seating area), and all seats are open to the white board. KITCHENETTE is located in the long wide hallway connecting the Conference Room to the larger Training Room, and includes cabinets and a granite countertop. We have it set up as a coffee / beverage station, with an espresso maker, single cup coffee maker, microwave, and fridge. Just the perfect size and location for a quick break between sessions. ONLINE TRAINING ROOM (ZOOM ROOM) is floor to ceiling windows on two full walls, with the excellent light you expect, and is set up as a comfortable online training and meeting space. Large round table seats 6 easily, more if you wish. A 4 x 8 wall-sized white board is on one wall.

This has really come in handy for us when we are holding meetings or workshops that are several days in length. We find our attendees (and teams) love moving between the table/desk seating and the more relaxed sofa and chairs combo.

We also have a terrific onsite tech genius to help you set all of this up if you wish, for an extra charge. :: PLEASE BE AWARE :: This office suite is our actual office! Yes, two of us will likely be there in the third room (our private office, adjacent to the hallway) working, and will use the kitchenette and the Conference Room / Lobby off and on during the day. There is no way to close off the Conference Room / Lobby privately, as it is the room you enter the suite through. If you plan on using the Conference Room/ Lobby for a private meeting that cannot be interrupted, we need to know that before you book, as there is an extra charge. If you have questions about any of this, please let us know: we are delighted to answer them. We do have another private conference room down the hall from this suite that can also be booked. It is set up with a screen and projector, conference tables and chairs, and seats 20. IT IS NOT INCLUDED in the rental of the two room office suite, it is separate.

I just had an amazing 3 day live-stream training in my home town of Alameda, CA. Normally I would have shipped 5 cases of training material to Las Vegas, booked the hotel, rented a car, and eaten bad restaurant food for 5 days. All this for a 3 day in-person training. This time, I chose to stay in town and live-stream my training with the help of the amazing peeps at the Live stream Training Facility. They set the space up with professional live-stream training in mind, and did a wonderful job. The training room is about 20 x 20, light filled, and designed with comfort in mind with plenty of space to layout my boxes of training materials, my computers, my notes, etc. The view from the training room (my view) was open on 2 sides to a park like setting—a corner office with huge windows, a relaxed view of couches and lounge chairs, beautiful art and OPEN space. The setting behind me…a white board and classroom view (for my students). I had the use of a large iMac and my workshop participants were on the computer monitor right in front of me. I could see everyone in my class and it was brilliant. I was worried about connecting with my students over the internet—not to worry at all it turned out. The video streaming during the training was amazing. I was professionally “miked” with a wireless mic and monitored throughout the 3 days to guarantee a good quality video of the training. Bandwidth was great. The tech support anticipated my every need and offered additional support for recording, breaks, framing shots, etc. Full disclosure: although editing was not included in my package, I paid extra for a chat person and tech support this first time, and I’m so glad I did. They have done this so many times, and it made all the difference for me walking in as a total newbie to online streaming. The owners have thought of everything to make the training easy. A mini kitchen, fridge, microwave, coffee makers, hot pot for tea, and large counter space that would accommodate a small buffet if needed. They were both there in the office suite with me for all of the training days, and they are quiet and busy working in their own office, which is next to the training room. All of this in a safe and secure office close to the Oakland Airport. This experience was one of the most relaxing training experiences I have ever had and I know all of my participants could feel it as well. The feedback they sent starting day one was so clear to me—they loved the training, loved being able to use their home/work office and take the training without traveling, and how much easier the whole thing was for them as participants! The sense of calm that just seemed to take over for everyone---for 3 amazing days. This is now my go to space for training. And making it work for me and my students via an online live-stream event has completely changed the way I train! It was so much easier (and SO much less in cost and time) to stay in town and train online. Thanks guys!
