What the heck is ‘cloud management’?

It’s now not uncommon for business builders to hire and manage remote workers — from employees and contractors to freelance agents and even crowdsourced guns for hire!

In fact, it’s now possible for organisations, both large and small, to operate from a head-office of… well… one.

You might be a solopreneur or a 15 person upstart. You could be a medium enterprise or a manager in a global enterprise. These days, you don’t have to share an office with your team.

You may never even meet face-to-face!

This is ‘cloud management’. And it’s widely used to cut costs, improve efficiency and meet the many changing needs of staff — contractors, freelancers and outsourced people from the global recruitment talent pool.

Learn, be entertained and engaged!

Attend this live, interactive webinar to learn:

  • The challenges of managing a dispersed workforce
  • What to do when your employees want to work for you, just not ‘with’ you
  • How to keep freelancers and other remote workers motivated and engaged
  • How to maximise relationships when you’re countries apart

Plus, Jim Ware and James Tuckerman will be working damn hard to keep you engaged and entertained for this 1-hour learning session. It’s the Anthill way, right!

Join Jim Ware (and James Tuckerman)

For Anthill’s second foray into the world of webinars (supported by GoToMeeting), we are proud to present Harvard-man and entrepreneur Jim Ware.

Jim is the founder and Executive Director of The Future of Work . . . unlimited. He also cofounded the predecessor firm, Work Design Collaborative and the Future of Work program. He has over 30 years experience in research, executive education, consulting, and management, including five years on the faculty of the Harvard Business School.

He’s written business bestsellers. Has more degrees than a compass. And is not a bad egg for an egg-head!

If you aren’t familiar with the Anthill Story (the myth, the legend), you’re about to be schooled.

Your favourite source of business news, advice and inspiration is a living, breathing and thriving example of cloud management. After making the big transition from print to digital publishing in 2009, Anthill’s founder and mostly-fearless leader, James Tuckerman, set about creating an environment where any employee can work whenever and from wherever they want.

Anthill was launched from the spare bedroom of a family abode and now is managed from the Anthill Incubator in Richmond, Victoria. And what about the Anthill crew? What about our employees? They run free!

What’s a webinar?

Okay, we admit it. Anthill has been a bit late to discover the wonders of the webinar.

If you’re a technical Luddite (or just strange and backward), according to Wikipedia:

A webinar is a neologism, short for Web-based Seminar, a presentation, lecture, workshop or seminar that is transmitted over the Web, specifically a portmanteau of web and seminar, to describe a specific type of web conference. A webinar can be collaborative and include polling and question and answer sessions to allow full participation between the audience and the presenter.

If words like ‘neologism’ and ‘portmanteau’ get you confused, a webinar is simply a way to login, join a vibrant and instruction online-seminar, pose questions and participate in online learning.
