12-03, 16:15–17:15 (Europe/Berlin), Main Track
Language: English

Working from a distance comes with its own set of challenges. Teams with virtual colleagues need to combat the "out of sight, out of mind" mentality and learn how to build trust in new ways. In this talk, we'll dive into how to perfect your own game, how to balance work and life, and how to be a better remote team player. You will walk away with new ideas for what it means to be “present” at work and how to create that sense of camaraderie even when you're virtual.

Lisette is a remote-working German-born American living in the Netherlands who is totally jazzed by the fact that it’s possible to work from anywhere. In fact, it’s not just possible; it’s completely, productively workable—if you do it right.
Lisette has given presentations at a wide range of events, from conferences and Meetups all over the world to a TEDx talk in Kaunas, Lithuania.
Her Work Together Anywhere Workshop is designed to help organisations become “remote first”: the ability to work together online when necessary. Participants learn how to align, communicate, collaborate, and have fun online!
The Work Together Anywhere Handbook offers the first complete guide to the best systems and practices for remote workers, managers, and teams of any size.
And her award-winning podcast features interviews with people and companies doing great things remotely.
