During the last two years, we’ve seen hundreds of millions of workers switch to a remote working model but the vast majority of employers have simply recreated the office vs. building a management philosophy focused on remote first management. In this panel, we will discuss the tactical workflows, rituals, and general management methods being used today to build a strong remote team.
Tracy has been at Twitter for the last 8 years, joining them to lead their EMEA and APAC Real Estate & Workplace teams in 2013 moving from Dublin, Ireland to San Francisco in 2014 to head up their Design & Construction team during a period of explosive growth which ultimately led to her returning from maternity leave to assume leadership of their global Real Estate & Workplace team in March of 2016. Tracy is responsible for all workplaces at Twitter, be that in an office or remote, her goal is to ensure their employees have the choice and agility to do their very best work regardless of geography.
