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.

Several rural cities in the US have campaigns to entice families to move to them, going so far as to offer a monetary incentive, in the case of Tulsa, $10,000 to help you settle.

If I think of ourselves, we sold up and left the city of 15 million for a pristine coastal town of 70,000 – the lifestyle change has been remarkable:

– No Congestion
– Closer to nature
– Regular Beach Walks
– Less Stressed Communities

One requirement to unlock all this is having the virtual work skills to be able to work like this. On a scale of 1 – 10 how would you rate your ability to work in a modern digital workplace?
