The Remote Show: Talking Async Meeting and Beyond with Tyler Sellhorn | TNN46
If you feel dragged to a Zoom meeting in the middle of the night when most of your colleagues are fully awake because it's daytime where they're at, you are not alone. The lack of real-time communication is becoming increasingly prominent in the workplace. For this reason, asynchronous communication is becoming a preferred means of communication in the workplace - making it easier for employees to work remotely without fear that they're missing out on critical conversations happening at the office. Tyler Sellhorn, Head of Customer Experience at Yac, is your go-to man when it comes to this type of work communication.
Festive Road: Fun Is Not the Enemy of Work with Aurelie Krau | TNN45
Freedom comes along with the phrase “Digital Nomad”. It is actually an understatement. Digital nomads are professionals who can work from anywhere - all they need is a decent Wi-Fi connection and a smartphone or laptop. They work in foreign countries, coffee shops, or shared spaces. And they have fun while working. Work does not hinder them to do fun things. They experience and get a taste of the local culture wherever they go. Aurelie Krau, a consultant at Festive Road and public speaker, can definitely attest to that.
Fairytrail The App to Find A Travel Match with Taige Zhang | TNN44
If you knew that you will meet your “The One” in a very spontaneous adventure, would you do it? Everyone secretly hopes that the love of their life will be waiting for them when their plane lands. Or better yet, that their special someone will be traveling with them to an exciting new city sipping complimentary white wine and picking out favorites from travel guides in flight. Traveling is fun – you’re in a new city and you’re going with the flow. Love abroad should mirror that easy-going nature as well. Taiga Zhang actually made this serendipitous moment possible through Fairytrail, a dating app made for single digital nomads and people who just like traveling and having fun
Health and Security Technology to keep you safe and secure with Brett Estep | TNN43
Choosing a health insurance plan or travel can be complicated but it is vital for travelers to know what kind of coverage they need and what they might need in their journey.

Brett Estep, Chief Operating Officer of Insured Nomads, would be happy to enlighten you about their policies and what’s in them for you.
Expat Secrets Revealed of the Expat Money Show with Mikkel Thorup | TNN42

Virtual Teams Across Cultures: Small Talk to Cultural Competence with Theresa Hollema | TNN41

Exploring the World as a Means of Self Improvement with Shay Doran | TNN38
Travel and exploration is a wonderful and fulfilling way to improve yourself on so many levels. Breaking out of your comfort zone is so difficult to do. Human beings are almost programmed to find whatever makes them feel safest and do it over and over again, even if it prevents them from growing. Traveling will force you to take a different approach. It’ll push you outside the comfort zone you know and love and open you up to new experiences. And the best way to learn all this is to be coached by a seasoned traveler and digital nomad, Shay Doran.

Having a plan in place is just as important as your travel experience and Scott Maras, the owner of ITG Worldwide, is just the person who can help you plan your travels and get you prepared for anything else in between.
