Happier staff, shorter commutes, flexibility, we’ve read the blog posts and heard the arguments, but Rob has been living remote working life for almost three years. He’ll share with Tech Nottingham the truth, the challenges, the best bits and the worst, and we’ll discuss how you and your organisation can benefit from working in the same way.

He is community leader in St. Nic’s Church in Nottingham, goes mountain biking on his lunch break and is currently planning a wedding.


Brand Values Workshop

by Rob Mathers

What does your company stand for? For tech companies in particular, it's easy to be seen as a commodity by your customers but to go beyond that and have a strong connection with your audience, you'll need to establish your brand values.
