Like the idea of being able to work from a tropical island, but not sure you want to be a travel writer for the rest of your life? There are other options. Increasing numbers of knowledge workers are earning a living remotely, allowing them to work from their laptops everywhere from Balinese beaches to the jungles of Thailand. From doctors, to web developers and consultants, hear the increasing number of options for travel loving souls who want to have a serious career while they explore the world.

The talk will cover opportunities such as freelancing, working as a remote employee and some of the skills that you should learn if you want to live and work in this way.

Refreshments will be provided, and there will be time to mingle and network after the talk.
