Hello, I’m Michael Sliwinski, founder of Nozbe - to-do app for business owners and their teams. I write essays, books, work on projects and I podcast for you using #iPadOnly in #NoOffice as I believe that work is not a place you go to, it’s a thing you do. More…

How we get our reunions done. Meeting my entire Nozbe team


Today our Nozbe reunion starts and it means that all of us remote workers get to one hotel and spend a week here. To enjoy quality time together, to strategize, to brainstorm, to strengthen our team. This is how we do it:

How we get our reunions done. Meeting my entire Nozbe team

We rent a hotel for a week in the middle of nowhere. Usually in a place where most of the team can get to easily. We arrive for late lunch at 3pm on a Monday and leave on Sunday after breakfast.

We start with a keynote of mine where I recap where we are. Where we were and where we want to go. We agree on the reunion’s schedule and I pre announce the presentations by other team members which will take place during the week.

We spend a long first evening together chilling out, talking, drinking beer. Since the last meeting in the spring we’ve grown 30% and when compared to a year ago, we’ve doubled our team count, so we need to catch up, get to know the new guys and gals. And just enjoy the first quiet evening before a long and demanding week.

And what will we do on Tuesday and beyond!? I’ll write more about it tomorrow after we’ve already done the the fist day. It’s going to be really cool to spend all this time with my team. Right here right now. Can’t wait. More tomorrow. Good night ;-)

Question: Do you work remotely?
