About this event

Work doesn't happen at the same time for everyone, especially when working remote. 

To ensure that your team feels connected — regardless of the time zone they are in — you'll need to put systems in place to ensure that conversations and decision-making opportunities are open to all. 

In this virtual meetup on October 15th at 12pm ET (9am PT), you'll hear from Slack, and others, in a panel discussion on the balance between async and deep work.
