Working together when apart: Webinar on remote working and collaboration

Webinar: March 31 | 2PM GMT / 3PM CET

Suddenly, many businesses and people around the world are being forced to adopt a remote working strategy when they are not used to working this way. How can you optimise the experience? Join UP member and organisational consultant Peter Bjellerup for a webinar on more effective remote working strategies.

Join us to get hands-on tips for effective communication in the time of coronavirus

At UP THERE, EVERYWHERE, our business model was built on the idea of remote working, and we’ve been working together with close-knit but dispersed teams around the globe for more than a decade. Now, we’d like to share some of our remote working strategies with you.

How do you make work work, when you don’t do it at work?

In this hands-on webinar, Peter Bjellerup, a new member of UP, but long-timer at working, meeting and collaborating remotely, will share his experience from years at IBM, as a world-wide consultant and expert in online collaboration.

After running two webinars in Sweden (in Swedish) with Hej Engagemang that required adding extra capacity to cope with demand, he will now do it in English with UP to reach English-speaking expatriates in Sweden as well as beyond the Swedish population of ten million.

Peter will take us from a (brief) helicopter view of the characteristics of different aspects of remote work and various remote work climates to useful routines for teams and individuals. The presentation will cover:

• Leading and teaming remotely
• Guides of engagement
• Selecting tools – the big picture
• Cloud files – good practices and valuable features
• Group chats – good practices and valuable features
• Create and manage – a mixed bag of tools
• Remote meetings – do’s and don’ts and characteristics

The presentation will last 45 minutes, and we intend to leave the remainder of the full hour for Q&A.
The section on remote meetings is supplemented by very hands-on advice to be found in these four blog posts by Peter a.k.a. The Social Swede
