At Pointer Remote we are passionate about supporting individuals to leverage remote work to thrive. Our Doing Work Differently Programs upskill participants by connecting them with specialist training and resources, practical workshops and e-Learning and creating a community of like minded thinkers. These Programs are delivered a number of ways; with a community cohort, an online cohort or self-paced.

Feedback from previous participants
"Fantastic work from Jo and the team and incredibly helpful and informative on so many counts, self-esteem and technology were notable and of course being organised and tools for this."
"This program really set me in a great place to be able to understand what expectations I should be putting on myself rather than setting myself up for a fail by not setting boundaries and time to do all I wish to achieve."
The program provided really valuable insights into the recruitment process. Loved the thoughts and tips around negotiating pay and not getting hung up on meeting a job advertisement 100%. I actually gave my cv a complete overhaul as a result."
"The organisation and time management aspects of the program have been extremely beneficial for me personally, All of the info has been great."
"I learnt new concepts and ideas from the course. I liked the small business structuring of the day, a different way to use google calendar and how to use Trello for the to-do list as a small business owner and translate this into chunking your day."
Each module in the Programs focuses on a specific topic area and includes video and written content as well as pre and post work, that has been developed by specialists in each topic area. The content is hands on, current and developed by industry leaders to ensure participants are building capacity in their ability to work and/or manage remotely.
