About the Event

Working remotely is not a new phenomenon, but when the pandemic hit nearly 1 year ago, it became a way of life. Companies across all industries are struggling to figure out how to find balance between remote working and the need for physical interaction.

We will explore the pros and cons of working remotely and how to plan for post-pandemic work.

Moderated by Lisa Effress, Managing Partner, 11 Dollar Bill and featuring panelists Julie Andrews, VP, Executive Production Director at R/GA, California, David Corns, SVP/Managing Director at R/GA, California, and David Baldwin, Partner/CEO/Baldwin&.
