Having An Office Space near Toronto’s Port Lands is becoming popular

While Toronto’s Harbourfront has been developing for many years, it has only been in the past few years that developers have started looking at the Eastern Port Lands. It began when Toronto Port Lands Company (TPLC) decided to develop the first building directly on Toronto’s waterfront to achieve LEED certification. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification consists of a suite of rating systems for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings, homes and neighborhoods. The new building was to house the radio and television studios and office space Toronto for primary tenant Corus Entertainment. Right next to Corus building, TPLC is constructing a new campus for George Brown College. Another Port Lands office space development is set to ...

Calling My Friend Rocco at His Toronto Office Space

I got an email yesterday from a friend who moved to Michigan last year. His email asked about some website programming work we had been talking about. In his signature I noticed that he had a 416 area code phone number where he could be reached (416 is a Toronto area code). To me, this meant that his office space was in Toronto. So instead of emailing him back, I decided to phone him at his Toronto office space and meet up for lunch. When I called the number on his email, I was standing at the elevators of my office space Toronto about to go out for lunch. The call was answered by a familiar voice and I also thought I heard that same voice answering the call not far from where I was standing… But I did not think about it. As I was telling Rocco about the project I needed his help on,...

Maybe It is Time For the Royal Family to Have a Toronto Office Space

For the fourth time in four years, Canada will be hosting royalty. I heard someone say with the news that this spring Prince Charles and Camilla will be visiting Toronto, that maybe it is time for the Royal Family to open an office space Toronto to co-ordinate all these frequent visits. Some even say they should have their own merchandising department in Toronto to approve and collect royalties on the various trinkets, bobbles and replica Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medals that many enterprising Canadians will be selling during the Royal Visit. When Prince Charles and Camilla arrive in Toronto, they will be greeted by emergency response workers before viewing a Victoria Day weekend fireworks display over Lake Ontario. If they had a Toronto office space at Telsec, they could comfortably w...

The Grass is Always Greener When…

The grass is always greener when someone looks at your job and wants it. When you tell people that you are successful and make a decent living at a job you love, everyone wants it. They love that you have your own Toronto office space and you set your own hours. They become more excited to do what you do. The excitement ends when you tell them you are an entrepreneur working for yourself without a safety net. You do not have job security or a cushy pension. You are building your future on your own. When I am asked “How do you do it?”, I often tell people that having my own business is very rewarding in many ways, but having an office space Toronto in a location that works for my clients is what keeps me busy and gainfully employed. When I was running my business out of my home, customers d...

It Was a Rainy Day in Toronto, when I had to go into my Toronto office Space

I woke up this morning to wet and dreary weather. My plan had been to take the day off and to take some photos down along the beach, but the weather was not cooperating. I considered instead that I would go into my downtown Toronto office space and get some work done that I had intended to finish on Tuesday. Then I realized that I did not need to go into the office and could probably get more work done from home working remotely on my office computer via the Internet. A few hours into working on the redesign of a brochure for the bicycle show, I wanted to go for a bike ride (I felt like Pavlov’s dog). The rain had slowed down almost to a stop, but the roads were still wet. I got on my rain gear and decided to brave the colder weather and go for a ride anyway. My only problem was that I cou...

The 1000 AWESOME Things Talked About Around my Toronto Office Space

The buzz around my Toronto office space on Thursday was how Neil Pasricha concluded his blog that was a list of 1000 things “AWESOME”.  It all began on June 20, 2008, when Neil set out on a mission to write 1,000 blog posts. Each of his weekday blogs was to chronicle of one awesome thing and count down until he hit #1. After launching “1,000 Awesome Things”, he started to get some attention from his friends and colleagues, but it really gained traction 20 posts in, when post 980 was linked to on a site called Fark.com. His blog’s popularity began to snowball further after Wired Magazine wrote about his blog and called post 980, which was titled “Old, dangerous playground equipment”.  Pasricha probably had no idea when he started his blog that it would lead to three books (two of which beca...

With a Toronto Serviced Office, There is No Need to Hire Administrative Support Staff

It is a dilemma you will face at some point during the life of your small business. The company is growing nicely but there is only so much you can do. Adding administrative support staff is an option to help you with the administrative work while you concentrate on your core business.

With a serviced office at Telsec Toronto office space, you already get a professional receptionist who performs these functions at no extra cost. Then maybe you need someone to do some filing or sort your mail for cheques...

Small Businesses like those who Rent Toronto Office Space at Telsec are Driving Canada’s Economic Recovery

It is not government bailouts or consumers tightening their belts or even government stimulus money that has helped pull us through this global meltdown. It was small businesses that were prepared for the downturn. Many small business owners knew there was an economic downturn coming, but they did not know when. To prepare for a bad economy, a lot of smart small business owners made sure to get their debts under control and manage the resources they had control of.  One such way that some businesses decided to best use their resources and manage their costs was to abandon the traditional office model and move to an office business centre. By moving away from a traditional office model, they were able to eliminate capital costs of office furniture, leasing or purchasing photocopiers as well...

The New Old Boys’ Club Is Being Run By Women

While only 12 of the Fortune 500 companies are run by women, there are a lot more large corporations that are run by a woman. Women are slowly making their way into senior executive positions and in the seats of big boardrooms, but many say that more is needed to get women into those top positions. When you look at medium and small sized companies, the numbers of women entrepreneurs is rising and their businesses are growing faster than those of their male counterparts. One just needs to look at business centres like Telsec and see the number of Toronto office spaces that are rented by companies that are owned or run by women – and many others have women in senior positions. In fact, the Vice President of Telsec is a woman. In a recent article in Forum (The Magazine of Influence for Financ...

Taking Office Space Toronto Photos

We have a number of photos on our website that are of our Toronto office space building and interior. Most of the photos that appear on our website have been purchased for use from the photographer or are commissioned photos that we have full rights to. All of the interior shots of our Toronto executive offices are commissioned photos that we have paid the photographer to do.

There are also a few photos of the Toronto Island Airport and other aerial photos that have been purchased from stock photography agencies. Recently, our staff photographer did a specialized web search of where our photos were being used and found that other web...
