Virtual Fireside Chat

The Adventures of a Digital Nomad

  • Explore the exciting life of digital nomads
  • Discover the remote opportunities you have as a freelancer
  • Determine if the digital nomad lifestyle suits you

14 October, 6:00 - 7:00 pm CEST

The virus has broken through cultural and technological barriers that prevented remote work in the past, setting in motion a structural shift in where work takes place. Hybrid models of remote work are likely to persist in the wake of the pandemic, mostly for a highly educated, well-paid minority of the workforce.

As tech freelancers, we are part of this highly educated group that sees the highest potential in working remotely. Digital nomadism takes remote work a step further, giving you the freedom to work from anywhere in the internet-connected world. In the wake of the pandemic, the number of digital nomads has risen by 49%.

But, how does one become a digital nomad? What preparation is necessary? And would the lifestyle even suit me? 

In this fireside, our panel of experienced digital nomads will guide you through all the relevant topics you should be informed about to make an educated decision whether you want to become a digital nomad or not. 

No matter if you are interested in the nomad lifestyle or not, the stories our panelists have to share are guaranteed to capture your attention. Check them out below!
