How to make remote work work

Iwo Szapar has been working remotely pretty much for his entire professional life - and has turned his passion for new work concepts into a career. 

As the founder of Remote-How, he advises and trains thousands of companies on how to make remote and hybrid work work. And as the co-founder of the Remote-First Institute, he is actively working on setting global standards for remote work.

He has a fascinating conversation with our host Sandra about his journey to remote work, why he believes we need global standards and what he would say to Elon Musk to convince him to go remote. We also take a look at what is next and how far remote work could go in the future.
