A bit of background.

As more and more large corporations, small businesses, remote workers, the self employed, and freelancers of all kinds look towards coworking and business communities – unfortunately, so do malicious individuals and organisations. 

Not only could bad actors disrupt these communities and their membership experiences, but they could also land community operators in hot water with the police or even intelligence agencies, both locally and internationally. 

In this session we discussed:

  • AML and KYC, 
  • what the heck they mean, 
  • and why they may be important AF to all community operators everywhere.

My guest today is Jeanine van der Linden, who not only runs De Kamer (a growing network of coworking spaces in the Netherlands) and plays a pivotal role in organisations like the European Coworking Assembly and Open Coworking, but is also an included Ambassador.

Not only is Jeannine known lovingly as the “old hippie of coworking“, but she’s also known for having the biggest heart in the industry for her work thanklessly championing causes that strive for the improvement of diversity, inclusion, accessibility, collaboration and sustainability across the sector.

The 'ultra-light' summary.

We’d recommend jumping straight to the video or audio versions, they’re full of great insights.
