Work used to be something done in offices. Today, it’s done in coffeeshops, coworking spaces, and on couches across the world. Not only does remote work provide better work-life balance for employees, it can be highly beneficial to employers as well, including increased employee engagement, higher retention, and lower operating costs.

The challenge many people face with remote work is how to ensure continued collaboration and connection from afar. The go-to answer – more meetings. However, research has shown that people spend up to 12 hours each week in meetings that are often labeled unproductive. Think about what you could do with an extra 12 hours!

So if more meetings aren’t the answer, what is? In this keynote, Chris Dyer will share his experience, research, and conversations with companies of all shapes and sizes to help audience members prepare for the workplace of the future: one that may in fact be completely remote. He will explore common pitfalls and share best practices that will set you up for virtual workplace success in the future. Join this keynote to learn the secrets for developing a high-performance culture where virtual employees thrive.

Learning Objectives:

  • Developing a familial workplace culture where remote salespeople feel emotionally connected and invested
  • Building two-way trust and better communication between remote employees and managers
  • Supporting team chemistry and capitalizing on “water cooler magic” from afar
