The remote lab

Navigating a “remote first” style of working – SOLD OUT

2020-09-01 — 2020-09-01

There is more to a successful remote team than just attending meetings and completing tasks. In order to create a collaborative workplace online, we have to focus on different things to combat the “out of sight, out of mind” mentality, and increase that sense of team. In this workshop we explore how to better collaborate online, and the various tools and techniques for building trust and increasing camaraderie online.

You will walk away with a good understanding of the things to think about when managing a hybrid team [mix of virtual and office based], with a focus on behaviours, trust, human connection, inclusion, and managing by outcomes.

This is not a “webinar”! You will be engaging in live conversations with real human beings who share your challenges. You are expected to be heard and seen throughout. As with any remote meeting, each participant of the workshop brings part of the meeting space with them. Please help yourself and others by ensuring you:

– Call from a quiet place.

– Have a stable broadband internet connection. Optimum bandwidth, i.e. internet speed on your side will be at least 10 Mbps download / upload. You can measure it using

– Use a headset.

– Turn your video camera on.

– To optimise your set-up, follow these suggestions on how to have a great video conferencing setup.

The session will be held in the video meeting app Zoom which you can download in advance from this link:

Who’s it for?
Hybrid workers: Many offices will not be able to open and operate at full capacity for a long time. At the same time, some people don’t want to go back to the office, even when it’s safe to do so. Now is the time to set up your remote workforce to succeed – no matter where they work.
