Listen to What Remote Team Leaders Are Saying About One of the Top 5 Remote Work Conferences of 2018 or Risk Company Failure

Remote Work Summit has been listed as one of the top 5 remote work conferences of 2018 by Adeva, a company that advocates the future of work initiative and connects remote developers with companies across the globe.

Unlike other events in the industry Remote Work Summit is a 100% not-for-profit event that benefits Konojel and Fincas Buenas - two NGOs that are on a mission to end the systemic causes of hunger and malnutrition in rural Guatemala.

We know that attendees of Remote Work Summit will enjoy the harmonious blend of work, play, and rest that the summit is built upon. The summit integrates personal and professional development, cultural immersion, and adventure travel.

These types of activities are scientifically proven to create more extraordinary leaders, high-performing teams, and meaningful company cultures - a remote team leader’s dream!

With intimate sessions, natural and cultural, and immersion excursions, intimate networking opportunities, evening parties, and time to relax and connect organically with thought leaders you are sure to go home motivated, energized, and stoked to implement what you’ve learned with your team!

Don’t take my word for it though….

Listen to What Remote Team Leaders Are Saying about Remote Work Summit and Ensure Success on Your Remote team:



1. Marty Imes, Founder, Consultant, and Culture Builder @ CultureStoke


Marty Imes is the founder of CultureStoke; he serves as a culture consultant who partners with CEOs, executives and entrepreneurs to elevate the human experience by building world-class company culture.

Marty is a great communicator himself and loves the culture of Remote Work Summit even before the start of the event - he can tell that he’s found another tribe of his people through connection with the Rebel + Connect team. “Wow, these are my type of people!”

Marty’s positivity mirrors the positivity created by the summit and he shares that “It’s not just about developing a business or networking, but it’s looking at the greater good and the greater impact that individuals and businesses can have in the world...and be that positive force of change…...this is something that I would be honored to be a part of and if not, at least attend to learn from all of these incredible people.”

After spending nearly a decade working in marketing and HR for a multimillion-dollar virtual receptionist service, Marty knows what truly drives a happy, high-performing workplace culture - and it’s not free snacks, ping-pong tables, and Friday happy hours.

It’s how well you genuinely care for the people of your organization, on a human-to-human level.
