By 2027, half of the US population is expected to crack open their laptops and work whenever and wherever they choose. More and more digital and knowledge-based work is happening within remote and distributed teams, remaking everything that we know about “work.” How we work, the tools we use, how we communicate, and even the hours we spend doing it are all being upended whether we like it or not! #WeLoveIt #Laptop&FlipFlops
With this massive shift, entrepreneurs and team leaders will need to learn how to manage the balance between human collaboration, corporate communication, and project management to create and maintain successful, distributed teams and businesses. Companies that pour real effort in supporting and empowering remote employees will see an outsized ROI in both profit and human capital, all while cutting down bloated middle management, expensive office perks, and other hard business costs.
In this panel, we’ll explore new ideas, techniques, and best practices for building, growing, and managing a distributed team in order to operate and optimize for maximum gain and efficiency. We’ll celebrate a world where anyone can use their talent to grow their business, keep teams and stakeholders happy, and become a successful, happy, and creative entrepreneur.
