Digital Nomads: Fad or Fo' Real?
Our early bird tickets have all sold out but don't stress - each ticket still includes one hard/soft welcome drink, depending on your choice!
Join MAKE Digital, Anna Chittenden (Founder of Lost Guides), Trishal Ghelani (co-founder, Affixx) and other Digital Nomads to find out more about how to make the office-free dream a reality.
Have you thought about working from underneath a palm tree or by the poolside? Maybe you've dabbled with the idea of managing your team remotely from some far flung destination?
I think at some point we've all thought about quitting our jobs, swinging on a backpack and exploring the world - but it often seems a dream to do this whilst still retaining a healthy little income. Well, believe it or not some people manage it, and MAKE Digital are back with three inspiring speakers to tell you more about how they use digital to make the remote working dream their reality.
Our second event will focus on exploring whether the digital nomad is in fact a fad or fo' real. We are aiming to ignite a conversation around how to earn an income independent of geography. No fixed desks. No lanyards. No 7am calls (okay, maybe not - depends what you do, nomad!) Our inspiring speakers (you'll find out who they are shortly, eep, the anticipation) will be giving us the low-down on how to make it happen.
Each ticket includes one drink on the house!
Our friends at Lime House have set us up with a real sweet deal and space. Each ticket comes with one drink on the house. They've also been kind enough to provide us with some discounted bar bites and drinks too. We'll send you the menu soon so you can get those tastebuds excited!
Early birds who catch the worm get a discounted price of $15
Normal birds still get the nomad-friendly price of $20
Looking forward to seeing you all there and making digital with you!
Our first speaker announced is Anna Chittenden, founder (and explorer) behind the popular travel platform, Lost Guides.
After a career in marketing, Anna decided to take the plunge to start Lost Guides after moving to the region from Europe in 2014. She published her first book, 'Lost Guides - Bali', after travelling extensively around the island, and her second book dedicated to Singapore will be out next month.
Having given up the corporate 9 - 5 for a life less ordinary, Anna will be sharing how she is making her desk-free dream a reality through canny crowdfunding and artful social media.
What is MAKE Digital?
MAKE Digital is a collective started by two young makers working in digital who want to change the way we connect, create and collaborate in Singapore.
Fed up with expensive networking nights and empty "business" exchanges we are creating a movement that focuses on genuine knowledge transfer and meaningful conversations. We'd love you for you to join us.
Our concept is simple: inspiring speakers; collaborative groups; informal atmosphere; powered by digital.
Three rapidfire talks (with PowerPoint banned!) give a range of perspectives and experiences for you to learn from. Once the talks have concluded we will open up to a Q&A session. If you’re too shy to ask something out loud then don’t stress, following this will be a breakout briefing. We'll split you up into smaller groups and focus on one key area you're interested in to pull apart and discuss.
There will be no boring icebreakers like “Hi my name is X and I do Y” – instead we get right into the nitty gritty with our facilitators and speakers to guide you along.
Post-brain stimulation we’ll have an evening of fun ahead!
