In Episode 6 of our #TIMETOLEAD leadership podcast series, Chris Smith, Global Head of Audit, talks about working with digital nomads.

Digital nomads have been around for several years - but who are those digital nomads? Covid-19 has made the world a virtual laboratory - testing our effectiveness to work in virtual teams. We have been forced to think about what the consequences are when working with remote professionals. How do you manage them, and what are the challenges and opportunities? Being a digital nomad himself, Chris explains how he has successfully led a virtual team these past few years.

The current crisis has resulted in a significant increase in remote working. But working from home, and leading a remote team also poses challenges. How can you create and maintain a good team dynamic? How do you measure the team’s productivity, and how do you engage with clients?

In an open discussion with Eleisha Stevens of InspireWorx, Chris talks about the engagement of a remote workforce, client satisfaction, and the need of digital collaboration platforms.

We hope you appreciate the rich content and valuable insights of these podcasts, and these will help you to emerge stronger from the current situation. Together we will create vibrant economies in our Dutch Caribbean islands, and ensure the well-being of our communities.

Best regards,
Gerd Glaudemans
