Community Highlights (October 2021)

Here are some highlights from the Community team over the past month.
gender equality – grow remote

As restrictions ease, we are witnessing more and more offline events across the Grow Remote community. It’s wonderful to see people meeting up for talks, tours and coffees.

And it’s just the beginning.

After a challenging 18 months, it is clear that 2022 will welcome a new energy and lots of chapter activity.

One highlight from October 2021 came from Arranmore Island.

Adrian Begley, part of the Grow Remote Chapter Team on the island, was invited to present a TEDx Talk at Grand Canal Dock alongside other prestigious speakers.

As soon as we have the video, we’ll share it far and wide!


We love meeting new people.

Every week, we welcome dozens of new members to the Grow Remote Community; through our Slack channel (brilliant for making new connections!), our Facebook Group, on Twitter and LinkedIn – and we are constantly chatting to members on the phone or, indeed, on the road during one of our Outreach days!

Lots of our members are looking for remote jobs. Lots are also managers of companies looking for solutions to remote work best practice. We also have self-employed entrepreneurs looking for remote resources and digital hub managers interested in meeting remote workers. 

Some of our members attend the Remote Work Ready training course, like Colm here.

He started a new remote job recently. We’re so happy to have helped him along the way.

When we get good news from one of our members, this is why we do what we do!

We are delighted to share a resource pack through this public Drive folder. It contains some presentations and slide decks that may come in useful in your work as a remote work advocate. Also included are some branding materials – our logo, some posters and banners. There’s also a draft press release for any of you speaking to your local newspapers.

We also provide bespoke materials for our chapters, so please don’t hesitate to reach out!

 The Inside Grow Remote Wiki is an amazing resources that’s been years in the making. It’s a treasure trove of resources, so let us know what you find in there!

Ireland’s first Remote Work Hackathon will take place on 20th and 21st November 2021. This is an opportunity for people from across the island to come together for 48 hours and build the solutions they want to see in their local areas. Participants will get access to leading remote work experts and plug into an exciting movement of creative remote work advocates.
