With the right resources at their disposal and a network of like-minded peers remote leaders can move beyond these growing pains and secure the future of remote work!

Co-Founder and Director of Program Development Charlie Birch shares, “Remote work is growing in popularity! While there are so many benefits to remote work, there are also unintended consequences. It is so important that leaders be proactive about humanizing the experience of working remotely, because at the end of the day the thing that makes remote teams so special - what sets a high performing team apart from a dysfunctional one - are the people themselves. The Remote Work Summit - above all else - is a vital reminder that we are not merely extensions of our computers, but rather we are human and that humanity is worth plugging into!”

Rebel + Connect’s Remote Work Summit strives to provide a harmonious blend of work, play, and rest by integrating personal and professional development, cultural immersion, and adventure travel.

For more information about event programing visit the event Lineup page. As speakers are confirmed and local activities and excursions are finalized this page will be updated accordingly.

Space is limited to invitation only, if you wish to apply for an invitation you may do so on the website.

Sponsorship opportunities are currently still available - also limited.

As a not-for profit event - it is a unique opportunity to have a positive impact on both remote and local community with one organized effort.  

All proceeds from the Remote Work Summit will fund community initiatives in San Marcos La Laguna. Konojel Community Center is a confirmed beneficiary of the event; Konojel’s mission is to reduce chronic malnutrition and endemic poverty in rural Guatemala. If and when additional non-profit partners are added the event’s social giving page will be updated.
