What Innovative Companies Are Doing to Navigate the Post COVID Workplace

In 2020, no one was planning on COVID-19 to force thousands of companies to transition to remote work. With these abrupt changes, countless teams found themselves communicating less, employee engagement lowered and deadlines missed because of the inevitable remote work challenges. The in-person managerial and leadership skills simply do not solve the obstacles that the remote workplace experience brings. However, there are a select few innovative companies that are leading the charge by building unstoppable remote workforces that are unexpectedly more effective than in-person teams. So what are these companies doing that makes them so successful? Since 2014 and well before the time of COVID, Jeff Butler has been building remote teams across different timezones and studying what the most successful hybrid and remote companies are doing. From his research, he put them into practice in his own companies to discover the truth from fallacy. The ideas he found are simple, and yet profound, but most importantly, when someone learns how to master the remote manager techniques, it would make them that much better of an in-person leader. Learning to master the changing workplace is no longer optional- it's a necessity. Fortunately, anyone can create a successful workforce- it's just a matter of how.

Learning Points

  • How transitioning from a 'face-time' manager to a 'performance-driven' manager can skyrocket your team's performance.
  • Discover what signals show up when a remote employee is about to quit.
  • Leveraging metrics in order to create an effective and action-driven team.


Digital innovation not only changes corporations but also who we are as humans. Technology continues to evolve at an exponential rate, swiftly collapsing industries that took decades to build. As cutting-edge technology seems to update every day, questions arise such as: How will this evolution change the way we humans work? What does this mean for the next generation? The reality is that the every industry will be affected just as any other.

In his presentation, Jeff Butler unravels which technological changes to anticipate (such as autonomous vehicles, Blockchain and artificial intelligence) and how their integration impacts the workforce; not only from a business perspective but sociological, psychological, and existential as well. How might this wave of change affect industries—and us as the people that work for them—faster than experts originally anticipated? While inevitable, one of the most important things that people can do now is learn where the tide is coming from… and be prepared for its impact. Jeff’s timely presentation will help guide and navigate conference attendees through this meteoric challenge called “technology change”!

Learning Points

  • Explore what are the impacts of block chain technology on the financial economy

  • Learn how technology is unraveling the ways our brains work and what that means for our future

  • Discover how artificial intelligence is on course to bring some of the most challenging times in our history
