Prerequisite Knowledge

No prerequisite knowledge is needed, though an open mind to explore the possibilities is.


Over the past nine years, I’ve worked as a 100% remote employee for six different companies. Through this, I’ve learned the good, the bad, and the ugly about remote work (as well as time shifted asynchronous work). In this session we will discuss the benefits and drawbacks of remote work, for both the employee and the company. Remote work can be a very beneficial and rewarding experience, but requires some shifts in mentality to make it successful. Learn the tricks needed, both procedural and technological, to make this possible!
