How To Move House

A presentation at Tech Nottingham in in Nottingham, UK by Euan Finlay

This is a variation on my Notes From My Travels talk. I don’t have a new abstract for this one yet, so I’ve left the original abstract below.

More companies are embracing flexible working and distributed teams - whether that’s individuals working remotely, or fully distributed companies with no central hub. This can have great benefits, but the path to success isn’t always smooth.

At the FT, we collaborate daily across time zones, from New York to Manila. How do we help our teams remain effective, avoid “us-and-them”, and feel part of a greater whole?

Having fixed production issues while up a mountain, I’ll cover:

  • effective communication across locations
  • what we learnt from other companies
  • advice on leading remote teams
