I'm the founder of FutureWork IQ where I spend my time assisting businesses to design digital workplaces or “offices in the cloud.” These environments enable companies to allow flexible and remote working for their teams. I also teach the digital literacy, fluency, communication and collaboration skills needed to work in these modern technology-rich workplaces.

Why would you sit for hours in traffic just to do work that can literally be done from anywhere? That makes absolutely no sense!

“Zoom and Slack both increase the speed at which teams collaborate, whether team members sit in the cubicle next door or in a country across an ocean. Leveraging the fast broadband connections and ubiquitous mobile access that are now easily accessible to remote workers, as well as collaboration tools like Zoom and Slack, professionals can work anywhere, anytime, adopting a flipped workplace model in which physical in-person meetings take place only rarely and as needed.”

+1 for business agility!
