InFocus Business Espresso - Time to Grow a Virtual Team?Featured
Work no longer has to be a place. Digital technologies make it easier than ever to run your business from a location that suits you best, with a team that does the same.
Reduced overheads, greater flexibility and working from the garden sound great but what are the practicalities of a team who aren’t across the desk from you? How do you recruit and build a team ethos and what platforms and tech will be central to making your business a success?
Kate Doodson, digital specialist and founder of Cosmic UK, is back to bend more minds at a Business Espresso, that will challenge notions of workplace, recruitment and team.
With characteristic clarity and insight as well as practical advice and tips, Kate’s content spans the high and mighty (concepts of companies’ growth and evolution) as well as the small and personal (accessing skills without adding to your payroll, keeping overheads low and motivating a remote team).
Weaving these themes, Kate will discuss the advantages of digital working, such as flexibility, motivation and a focus on results. And if you’re growing and ready to recruit, learn how recruitment in a connected world, can be a simpler and less-risky step than when the old rules applied.
The morning includes breakout sessions where you'll hear honest stories from people who have been there and done it, consider the implications on your vision and culture, learn the dos and don'ts when working with virtual assistants and brush up on your video-conferencing etiquette.
(Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly is a huge area; a team contained within it can still be many miles – and hours – apart.)
