Sharon Koifman – Building and Managing Remote Teams Successfully
Sharon Koifman is the CEO and Founder of DistantJob, a leading recruitment agency, and ThinkRemote´s chairman.
He has been leading remote teams for nearly two decades, and during his session at FBS, he gave powerful insights into what managing remote teams truly means. He talked about why building culture matters, how connection plays a key role, and how to make your team more productive and outperform.
“Working remotely is more productive because you are more in control of your distractions. But are you really? Learning how to deal with distractions is fundamental by applying simple methods like breaking down your tasks and tackling the hardest one first thing in the morning.”
- Culture means connection
- Know your employees on a personal level
- Reduce meetings as much as possible
Panel Discussion – Second Residency, Visas, and Relocation
This powerful panel discussion was led by Tarek Kholoussy, who talked about what being a digital nomad truly means with Nienke Nina Keizer, Kristin Vierra, and Beca Marsh. Here are some of the takeaways from the conversation:
“I think it’s important to show gratitude. As digital nomads, we also need to give back to the countries that welcome us.” – Kristin Vierra
“The ability to move is great. You´re not stuck in one place, and that is the power of this.” – Nienke Nina Keizer
“For me, a lot about this is regarding exchange. Not only financially but also in terms of advice and knowledge. And also it comes down to supporting local businesses in the places you visit.” – Beca Marsh
