Tell us a bit about what is the Remote Future summit:
The Remote Future Summit is an online conference happening from 5th to 8th of June where you can learn from top global experts how to effectively tackle the remote revolution. As the remote work is on the rise we have realized that both companies and employees need to learn how to adjust to the new reality. Therefore conference agenda has 4 days, each focusing on different group and their learning needs.
Why was The Remote Future Summit started?
Frankly speaking, the idea of The Remote Future Summit was born as a result of shaping business model of Remote How which was initially a start-up providing innovative incentive program, dedicated to the top talents in companies. We were working on a 1-month remote work & travel program in locations around the world. We want to combine traveling with learning experience, but very soon we have realized that the market needs education beforehand. We have interviewed almost 50 HR managers and C-level from US and Europe to get their feedback on remote work. This is when we got inspired to organize the Remote Future Summit for the first time. It took us some time (and lots of cups of coffee!) to talk to these people and to understand what are the expectations of such conference.
When will this event take place?
The Remote Future Summit will take place in June, from 5th to 8th. Each day will be focusing on different topics so make sure to check agenda earlier and book your time. Read more about Remote Future Summit, here!

How many participants do you expect this year?

What makes the Remote Future Summit different from most conferences? (Play on the fact that it is online, etc)
What makes the Remote Future Summit different is definitely our approach. First, we decided that the conference about the remote work should be done online, so it can be accessible for everyone, everywhere. By choosing to do it online we are making sure that quality of learning experience will not be compromised. Second is that we have gathered an exceptional group of speakers from different organizations who will be sharing their best practices on remote work. You will have the opportunity to learn from organizations like Asana, SalesHacker, SAP, Mural, Toptal, Etsy, Dropbox, the New York Times, abadoo and many more. This kind of knowledge can not be find in one place anywhere else. Last but not least, with this very event we want to build the community of remote advocates that will spread the Remote Revolution further. By joining us, you’ll have the chance to be part of this movement. I don’t think anyone has ever done that before!
What can participants expect over the 4 day event? (tie in points on the structure, and the goals of the event).
We will for sure have something for anyone interested in remote work.
– Day 1 is for all kinds of managers and it will cover the challenges that the workforce is facing in 2018. You will have the chance to listen to our Remote Work Advocates talking about the future of workplace when it comes to engagement and culture.

We are very proud that all our speakers are remote advocates who really believe in the Remote Revolution!
One of the benefits of attending conferences is meeting and connecting with individuals who attend. Does Remote Future plan to create opportunities for theses same connections but in an online capacity?
Yes, there will be some opportunities to network and meet others, but as always it will be up to participant whether to take this opportunity or not. For instance during all the key-notes or panel our attendees will have the opportunity to talk to each other and exchange comments. We have also opened a Facebook event and a dedicated LinkedIn profile where we will moderate discussion about topics related to remote work.
