How to Transition to Having a Remote Workforce for Business Owners

    • When it comes to talent, what if you didn't have to rely on the people within driving distance of your agency? What if the WHOLE world was available to you?

      In this small (ironically IN-PERSON) roundtable discussion, we'll talk with remote workforce expert Laurie Macomber on how she has managed her company with 100% remote workforce for almost 10 years. Ask her anything about management, best tools, tricks or compliance/regulations.

      This roundtable will be geared toward business owners who want to dip their toes into the idea of taking part or all of their teams remote.

      Please bring your own lunch if you need to eat :)

      About Laurie Macomber
      I run Blue Skies Marketing, a boutique marketing agency that focuses on all things digital. I became affectionately known as the “Google Guru,” 15 years ago, probably because I love alliteration AND I love Google. I am also truly on top of what that gargantuan search engine needs to see in order to rank a website.

      I have a way of making geeky things understandable too. People love the way I, like Mary Poppins, can make the Internet go down, “in a most delightful way!”

      I am on the Board of Directors of the Better Business Bureau of Northern Colorado, am co-owner of Fort Collins’ first co-working facility called ‘The Hive’, brought the ‘edutainment’ concept called “Ignite” to Fort Collins, am a past president of the Board of Directors of the Center for Fine Art Photography, was the co-owner of Social Media Pilots, am the Marketing Columnist for Biz West, am co-leader of the Fort Collins Internet Professionals (FCIP) Meet Up with its 1,100 members, am a member of the Berthoud Chamber, co-founder of the SEO Boulder MeetUp . . .. and a sought-after speaker on Digital Marketing topics around the country.

      When I’m not advising clients and running the tight ship that is Blue Skies Marketing, I spend time at the gym, keep up to date on SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and copywriting techniques, run my 5 star AirBnB . . . . and I make a mean roasted lamb chop with chermoula.
