Business leaders will debate the pros and cons of a remote workforce.

Manny Medina, CEO of fast-growing sales automation platform Outreach and proponent of keeping teams in the office, will argue that remote workforce programs have a serious productivity “tax.” The debate will be moderated by Santi Subotovsky, partner at Emergence Capital, and will focus on issues such as hiring, productivity, costs, and team cohesion.

    Speaker: Paul Leonardi | Duca Family Professor of Technology Management | University of California, Santa Barbara

We will discuss the latest scientific findings about how to overcome the challenges inherent in distributed collaboration to achieve increased performance.
