About This Event
Are you a budding entrepreneur or a long-time remote worker? Do you work in an industry where a cubicle isn’t mandatory and you pull your inspiration from outside the four walls of the office? Maybe you’ve just begun to explore these opportunities and are highly curious – but one thing is for certain: The future of work is changing and a new generation of professionals are making the world their office.
In this panel discussion, we’ll hear various perspectives on location-independent work, new ways of collaboration and how individuals travel and work remotely without giving up their career ambitions, but rather, propel their careers through exposure to new cultures, people and experiences.
Join other digital nomads or aspiring ones to kick back, expand your network, and discuss life as a digital freelancer, adventurer, and entrepreneur.
