Win an #OutOfOfficeOffice Week with Connected Hubs!

[Competition T&Cs at the end of this article]

It’s officially summer, and whether you’ve got all your plans laid out or still deciding what adventures you’ll take over the next couple of months, Connected Hubs is here to take the remote work stress away. Now, get ready to turn on your auto-replies and brag about your Out-Of-Office-Office!

As part of the Hubs’ commitment to supporting businesses all around Ireland, one deserving winner and a friend who enters our #OutOfOfficeOffice competition in July will have a chance to win a week’s free desk space in August.

So, what is an Out of Office, Office? It’s when work gets that bit closer to play. When you have to get back to work, but not back to the office.

It’s when Karen in finance sent that tricky email at 5pm, but by 6pm you’re on a sunset hike after a day at the Árainn Mhór – MODAM hub in Donegal. Located on the beautiful Árainn Mhór Island (Arranmore) three miles off the Donegal coast on the Wild Atlantic Way, MODAM is Ireland's first offshore shared digital workspace.

Maybe you’re going to a festival and want to put off the travel home a couple days with an Out-Of-Office-Office? Our 360 Hubs are never far from you; like Fumbally Exchange Waterford which is just a 30-minute drive from the All Together Now festival grounds. A not-for-profit movement of professionals, Fumbally Exchange offers a co-working space located in the heart of Waterford Viking Triangle

Your Out-Of-Office-Office might also allow you to enjoy day two of that wedding without getting the Sunday scaries; like 61 North shared working space in Wexford, located in the centre of Wexford town offers a creative space to work away conveniently and comfortably in a bright, inspiring co-working space.

Want to get your #OutOfOfficeOffice on? Submit your entry via our social media channels below.
