Pilar Orti ~ Director @ Virtual, not Distant

Having run a small organisation herself, Pilar understands the importance of people feeling valued and engaged at work. Changing the tools and the location of our work shouldn’t impact our ability to work closely together. However, we do need to shift our mindset and let go of old ways. Pilar is fascinated by the opportunities that technology brings to make the world of work a better place. And seeing as we spend more than 70% of our waking time at work, what better way of helping make the world a better place?
