One-day Tubbercurry conference will focus on working remotely

Ireland's first Smart Community, Tubbercurry & South Sligo, is delighted to welcome the Grow Remote conference to Tubbercurry on Tuesday 16th of April 2019. This one-day conference features speakers from across Europe and American and aims to discuss the opportunities that exist for remote working in Ireland and the benefits it can bring to employees, employers and local communities.

Joann Hosey, Chair of Smart Community Tubbercurry said, "Our ambition is to bring remote workers together and to create a new community of people with common interests and purpose, a community that will help the economic prosperity of our town, a community that will help Tubbercurry to thrive".

The conference will play host to remote workers, international employers and local town groups who each have an interest in remote working. The conference will have over 15 speakers who will share their latest thinking on the technology, management supports and opportunities that exist for remote working. It will also showcase community case studies and will transform two buildings in the main street to show how remote working can have an impact locally. Currently it is estimated that over 216,000 people work remotely in Ireland.
