It’s going to be a while before we go back to in-person events. To maintain sales & to keep expanding & maintaining our business networks, on-line & virtual events are going to be the way to go for now.
There are some great things happening on line, I’ve attended several webinars on how to cope with the impact that COVID-19 is having on business. Here is a run-down of some events that may be of value to us tech sales pros:

5. Ramp Up Remote: How to Build Community + Culture in Distributed Teams
ORGANIZED BY GENERAL ASSEMBLY
APR 9 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM Founders Networking
As we all watch the evolving COVID-19 situation, companies around the world have rolled out mandatory remote work to reduce the risk. For many years, people have predicted the rise of technology would allow jobs to become more distant from the office. Is this a revolution and a glimpse into the future of work or just an emergency move?
In partnership with Hypergiant Industries and Salt Recruitment, join us for a virtual panel discussion on the Ramp Up Remote: How to Build Community + Culture in Distributed Teams. We invite you to come and learn how businesses are working to build and nurture a new remote-work culture that can outlast the coronavirus outbreak.
