Emelie Fågelstedt: Remote lessons from the Nomadic Workforce

2021-04-13 — 2021-03-29

This past year remote has become the ’new normal’ for millions of people around the world. But long before the pandemic hit us there were already digital nomads working remotely from all over the globe. What can we learn from the individuals and companies that already have years’ of experience of working from the road? And will we see a future where more people look to work remotely to travel or relocate to new locations?

Join in for a discussion about the remote workforce of tomorrow. You’ll get insights from the digital nomad movement and remote-first companies, learn about nomadic hubs around the globe and discuss the power of remote communities.
