Remote-first, async project management and virtual-only communication can, at best, lead to back-and-forth emailing and endless iterations and, at worst, result in one’s best ideas being lost in translation. It’s possible, however, to cut through the challenge of today’s need to work fast digitally and move from idea to product quickly on both the freelancer and client side.
Join us on August 18th for a conversation with Murat LeCompte, a Communications Advisor and Consultant with over 20 years of experience, and Susan Haigh, Head of Ecosystem Partnerships at Uizard, to learn how freelancers and clients can expedite communication and collaborate with ease. All event attendees will receive a promo code for one month of free access to Uizard Pro. Additionally, attendees are eligible to receive 10 free Connects on Upwork.
Mark your calendars for August 18th at 9:00 AM PST as Murat and Susan will discuss:
