Virtual Working... Fad or natural evolution?

Following our very successful Breakfast event on Virtual Working in March, we decided to re-run the session, but this time for a virtual audience, due to the demand from people unable to attend the event.

Our speakers will be answering the BIG virtual questions…

1. What conditions create a high performing team?

2. How do you equip large populations for effective virtual working?

3. When you take away the office, what do you need to put back in to make teams work effectively?


Rob Briner, Professor of Organisational Psychology at Bath UniversityCurrent affairs at Yahoo and others and the role of the psychological contract.

Andrew Mawson, Managing Director of AWAManaging and working at a distance and the role of trust management.

Phil Makinson, RBSThe RBS case study… The bank’s experiences in equipping people in remote working / managing remote teams.
