COO Forum, Shared Workspaces Help Woodbury's Business Leaders Connect
Thursday, December 05, 2019
The role of a chief operating officer (COO) can vary greatly from one business to the next. For Mary Bartlett, COO of Woodbury shared workspace The Reserve, her role entails “everything from running the day-to-day operations of three different locations, meeting new potential members, and building a vibrant community by connecting members and helping them grow their business,” she says.
Meanwhile, Garret Werner, COO of medical service supplier Picc Stat, describes his work as “overseeing strategic operations, ensuring that we have the staffing for hospitals ... everything personnel-focused.” Their individual roles differ, but both Bartlett and Werner are under pressure to keep their businesses running at full speed, and sometimes they just need to talk it out.
