We can embrace the future of work right now
by Nadia Udalova & Rayana Verissimo

The future of work means that we can work from wherever we want, whenever we want. In this talk, we will delve into the new era of remote culture without borders, which revolves around transparency, values, and innovation. By sharing challenges and solutions to creating a thriving remote culture, we hope to inspire other companies to embrace the future of work.

Distributed Work at Sketch
by Pieter Omvlee

From its very (accidental) start, Sketch has been a distributed company, currently employing over 90 people in 20 different countries. Pieter Omvlee will talk about the origins of the company, their reasons for going distributed, and how they organise their work to be productive.

We have two additional speakers from Miro, and those details will be updated soon!
