Flexible, remote and hybrid working models are now a trend no business can ignore. But while large corporates are making a splash in the press to announce freshly formed flexible working strategies, what approach are small and medium sized businesses taking? 

In this series, we speak to thought leaders from innovative SMBs to find out. Over the course of six episodes, we deep-drive with leaders who are rewriting the rules on work. We’ve focussed our conversations around real-world experiences and tangible take-aways. Which will help you, your teams and your business not only survive, but thrive with a flexible-first approach. 

Each episode explores flexible work from a unique vantage point - we’ve got perspectives from working parents, chief technology officers, business owners and digital nomads. And we haven’t shied away from the burning questions and big debates. All this will equip you with novel insights and a holistic view of what works in the world of flexible work.
