Time to grow a virtual team?


Business is going pretty well, you’re at a point where you need a trusty extra pair of hands or two, but you’re worried about all those overheads that come with recruitment: the next Business Espresso morning from Unlocking Potential might just help you find a solution.

Taking place on the morning of March 31 at Healeys Cyder Farm, the Espresso, run by Unlocking Potential as part of the ERDF-Funded InFocus programme, will tackle questions like ‘how to recruit and build a team remotely’ and ‘what tech platforms should be used to manage a virtual team successfully’.

Kate Doodson, digital specialist and founder of Cosmic UK, will lead the session and answer those important questions, challenging the notions of the traditional workplace, recruitment and team.

She explained: “This Espresso will focus on how technology can provide busy business owners with popular concepts to expand their workforce whilst keeping costs low.

“Digital technologies make it easier than ever to run your business from a location that suits you and your team the best.”

Weaving this theme, Doodson will discuss the advantages of digital working, such as flexibility, motivation and a focus on results. And if you’re growing and ready to recruit for the first time, learn how recruitment in a connected world, can be a simpler and less-risky step than when the old rules  applied.

InFocus programme manager, Jamie Smith, added: “Being a short, sharp hit, business owners will spend three hours during the morning learning useful take-away information that they can put into practice by the afternoon. Following Kate’s session, we’ll have breakout groups where you’ll hear honest stories from people who’ll impart the dos and don’ts when working with virtual assistants and tips for brushing up on your video-conferencing etiquette.”
