James Mayes — Making Remote Inclusive (Turing Fest 2018)

James Mayes — Making Remote Inclusive (Turing Fest 2018)

The culture of work and the very nature of how we do business have evolved massively in the last few years. This session will dive into how remote working has changed our office culture, our team communication and the management approaches required. James hasn’t been office-based since 1999, so he’s plenty of experience to draw on – and will bring a selection of advice and examples from other firms too. A strategic conversation with tactical advice.
