A podcast series about remote leadership

“We’ve got an opportunity with COVID to completely rethink the way that we work, and by rethinking we can build better workplaces where people are more engaged, more productive and benefit from better work-life balance as well. Imagine a future where things were better, what does that look like? And how are you going to actively shift your organisation towards that future?”
