Our central workshop and training facilities that inspires to creativity and growth.

In the center of Stockholm you find our creative space of 100 sqm designed for Agile workshops, trainings, seminars, meetups and other activities to support fun and energizing growth. We offer our consultants, customers and partners to use our facilities and we also use it for our own activities within Dandy People.

The space is named Las Vegas, because what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas 😉

The Las Vegas space is divided in two big rooms with a wall, but no doors in between. That is why both areas are always used by the same group at all times. One part, the SOCIAL SPACE, of about 50 sqm is designed with comfy sofas and chairs for about 20 people. And on the other side of the wall is the WORKSHOP SPACE. This space is dedicated for workshops, trainings and seminars and it is an open space about 50 sqm with flexible furniture to fit any purpose.
