The Future Is Now - How Remote Work Is Here To Stay and What To Do To Succeed In The Future

Keynote - The Future Is Now
At NextMapping we have been sharing a predictive statistic for the past 5 years that by the year 2020, 50% of the workforce would be working remotely.

By the year 2020, 50% of the workforce would be working remotely

No one would have ever predicted that a global pandemic would make that particular prediction a reality.

Workers have been looking for companies to offer remote work and it has been a key element for talent to decide which companies to work for.

Leaders have been adapting to the remote work reality albeit some industries have been faster at remote work adoption than others.

The reality is that the ’next normal’ is here to stay and that includes remote work.

Attendees will leave this session with:

  • Research and data on remote work and the numbers of companies who have a remote work strategy
  • Case studies of companies who have mastered the remote work dynamic
  • Strategies on who to align remote work strategy with worker engagement and retention
  • Ideas on how to compete in business with a remote work strategy
  • Tips and tricks on how to help leaders inspire remote workers and lead them to high performance
  • Insights on how remote workers can set up their environments for greater success
  • How to integrate remote work strategy into future planning of the business

We had Cheryl back for a second time to facilitate and keynote our annual 1.5 day retreat for our city employees, designated residents, business community and other city stakeholders, and it was a huge success. We had attendees say that it was even better this year than last year and it's attributed to Cheryl’s skillful and expert facilitation, interaction with her participants and preparation. Cheryl spoke with each of the guest speakers on the agenda in advance of the event and ensured that the agenda flowed so that there would be maximum effect on the overall retreat.

Our theme was ‘NextMapping’ the future of work including innovation, technology, leadership and culture. Her keynote address throughout the retreat included the open, the close of day one and the close of day two.

Cheryl has the unique ability to bring relevant and inspiring approach that creates both innovative solutions as well as practical ways to apply the ideas shared. In her open keynote, she set the inspiring tone on the future of work including the impact of technology and how people need to adapt to the fast pace of change. Her closing keynote on day one focused on NextMapping the future of leadership and what it means in the future of work for teams and entrepreneurs. The speakers on the agenda covered smart cities, world class businesses, innovation, creative thinking, historic digital preservation, drones and more. On day 2 Cheryl recapped the entire day and a half and incorporated key items from each speaker into her closing keynote.

Each time we have worked with Cheryl we have benefitted from increased innovation, and teamwork within our city team. We see Cheryl as an integral part of our annual innovation focus and look forward to working with her many, many times in the future.””
