In the past, communication with remote colleagues has been notoriously bad. The connections were rarely good, we couldn’t see each other, and we often found ourselves around conference room tables hunched over a spider phone yelling “Hey Bob, it’s Lisette. Can you hear me?”. Some of us still do!
But in the last 5 years, technology has come a long way. And it’s time to take another look. In this mini-workshop, we will explore how people and companies are organizing themselves to work remotely.
You will hear stories of digital nomads, virtual entrepreneurs, global business networks, and robots. Through an exciting game of Bad Meeting Bingo, you will walk away having learned what it means to lead in the modern day workforce and how you can use remote working to your company’s advantage.
