About this event

Returning to the office anytime soon? If so, are you secretly thrilled or quietly on the hunt for a new job? We get it. We hear about it every day. Companies are returning to the office or going fully remote and losing people along the way. After all, very few of us are without nuance. We want to strike a balance.

Working remotely as a creative is hard. You're isolated from your team, and Slack isn't the same as throwing ideas around in a room together. But it also allows a level of freedom few of us have ever enjoyed; we can ruminate on a brief while changing over the laundry or concept while taking a walk around the neighborhood. In short: there are a lot of pros and cons.

As we return to the office or consider what it will be like to go back to a "9-5," let's talk about what's working, what's hard, and how we can improve work – wherever we may do it.
