For anyone running a remote team, join leaders such as Buffer’s CEO on beautiful Bali for hard-hitting tips on the future of work
Running Remote 2018 is the world’s biggest remote work conference. It is being organized by one of Forbes’ top 10 co-working spaces on earth and some of their speakers include Buffer CEO Joel Gascoigne, Doist CEO Amir Salihefendi and Atlassian’s Director of R&D Dominic Price.
Remote teams are growing at an extremely rapid pace. According to “The 2017 State of Telecommuting in the U.S. Employee Workforce” report, 3.9 million people, or 2.9 percent of the total U.S. workforce, worked from home at least half the time in 2015, a 115 percent increase from 1.8 million back in 2005. A growing number of entrepreneurs and business leaders are looking for ways to improve their remote work operations.
For the first time in the Southern Hemisphere, international experts will host a series of discussions about building, running and scaling remote teams.
“This is the event we’ve been looking for, but it didn’t exist until now. If you are serious about building and scaling your remote team, then join us in Bali this June,” said Liam Martin, Time Doctor Co-Founder.
The two-day conference on June 23 and 24, 2018, will be held at the luxury spa resort Fivelements Bali, Ubud, in Indonesia.
Topics covered will include:
Management styles, processes and technology for managing remote teams
Latest collaboration tools and techniques
