Not to be Missed – Annual Celebration of Coworking Day at OfficeXpats on Wednesday – Its Free!

The concept of coworking – essentially renting office space and sharing resources with others – has taken off on Bainbridge Island and throughout Kitsap County and across the country in past decade or so.

Bainbridge’s own OfficeXpats ( is one of the pioneers, having set up shop nearly a dozen years ago in The Pavilion in Downtown Winslow, and attracting clients from all walks of business life – writers, artists, finance people, budding entrepreneurs and the like.

OXP Coworking Celebration Poster 2023The company – co-owned and operated by the husband-and-wife team of Jason Omens and Leslie Schneider – is located at 403 Madison Ave N. Suite 240, on the second floor of The Pavilion. The couple is hosting a “Coworking Day” on Wednesday, August 2nd to both celebrate their business and promote the concept of shared work space.

“As is our tradition, the event is free,” says Schneider, who doubles as a Bainbridge Island City Council person. Included is a free barbecue on the deck, from noon to 1 p.m., plus a real working Chocolate Fountain.  At 4:30, guests will celebrate the release of author Florence Klein’s recent memoir, “Under the Hat.”

OXP Florence Klein book release image 2023At age 12, Klein took charge of her life.  She kept her hat on—literally—as she became one of Philadelphia’s first female stockbrokers, a real estate developer, a high security-prison volunteer, and a pioneer in helping elders. In this candid memoir about courage, purpose, inclusion, and kindness, she helps us to become trailblazers ourselves.

Florence will read from some of these highlights, and will have books to sign. She will also share about her publishing and marketing journey.
