Due to the recent outbreak of the coronavirus we decided to host our first “Virtual Edition” of Remote afterworks. The main mission of our events is to gather the local communities of remote workers, advocates and professionals who want to know more about remote work, debating topics that are also connected to the city or the country where we host the meetup. Even though we switched to virtual and allowed anyone interested to join the event, we maintained the essence of our events, debating the #stateofremotework in Israel. Hosting a virtual event was a great opportunity for a larger group of panelists to join some of whom could have not attended the presencial event, what made the discussion even more interesting. We also had the opportunity to have Megan Eddinger , the director of learning experience at Workplaceless, leading the virtual debate.
In the first panel we discussed the State of Remote Work in Israel ; challenges and opportunities:
Nimrod Dean Kuchel - Founder of Digital Nomads Israel
Gilad Bornstein - CoFounder of FlatWorld.co

In the second panel we discussed the State of work post Covid-19 with:
Ronen Rubinfeld - CoFounder of FlatWorld.co

The meetup ended with a great networking session where the audience was divided into several discussion groups to continue the conversation and to get to know each other. We are looking forward to host another event in Tel Aviv in the near future.

Remote After Work New York was the first event with this naming after our first prove of concept in Munich in May hosted by Marcus Wermuth. Our host in New York was Laurel Farrer who lights up the stage when she is leading an event about her favorite topic, Remote Work. The nice venue provided by Nomad Works allowed an audience of around 40 remote work advocates to be very participative and engaged during the whole afternoon. This concept is in the pilot stage, and the members of the advisory board are experimenting with different agendas, locations and sizes to find the sweet spot for creating the most engaging reputable event. NYC was a total success and we want to build up on this experience. Thanks to Bret , Laila, Jaime and Jonathan for sharing great value & knowledge with the audience and to all participants for attending, even to the group of Meetup employees that came to visit.
