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.

Raise your hand if you can relate to Kim’s story:

Wake up & get ready
Drive to the train station
Take the train
Take transportation from the station to the office

Work 8 hours

Take transportation from the office back to the station
Take the train
Drive from station back home
Have dinner & get ready for bed

Repeat week in and week out for 49 weeks of the year. This is madness.

The scariest thing about all this is that most companies and individuals working in them believe that they don’t have a choice, that this is how it’s done! In the next decade lets do things smarter!

We have the technology and we have the know-how to enable anywhere work, practically ending the need for daily commutes. There is no reason not to enable flexible and remote working!
