About This Event

With the pandemic affecting the way we live our lives in all different aspects, the most common one was staying at home and working from your bed, sofa or desk if you were lucky to have one.

The mandatory working from home rules started in March 2020, and a selection of companies have adopted this as a new normal. With people who feel that from now on can have a balanced life without spending hours commuting to people who need to leave the house because they can't work with their little ones invading zoom meetings, this decision has divided the world. Is WFH better or worst?

Join us in this event for an informal conversation on the consequences of WFH and its advantages and disadvantages.


  • Consequences of Working from Home
  • Tips and Trick on how to balance your life
  • Advantages and disadvantages
