Remote and Hybrid Work: What Now?

The last three years have been a period of massive disruption, work has changed, and we are still figuring out what the future could be.

There is no "new normal" - every organisation, every team, and every person will need to continually evolve to find the balance of remote, in-person, synchronous, and asynchronous that will be best for them.

In this track, we will show how some organisations are learning and adapting and how to keep mental wellness front and centre.

We will also discuss how to find ways to engage our people to create a great culture without creating any out-groups and how leaders need to show up and explore how immersive 3D environments might be part of our future.
