Session Title: A Freelance Nation— Bending Toward Flexible Teams

Imagine if you rebuilt your team from scratch. What might it look like? Emerging technology is removing the barriers that have traditionally restricted hiring to local talent pools. Businesses can now build more flexible, distributed teams by accessing top talent around the world via the Internet. In this session, Upwork Senior Vice President Rich Pearson will host a panel of clients and freelancers to discuss how organizations are leveraging digital marketplaces to power their businesses.

Special Message to Attendees from Host Company: Our building has a garage attached to it with valet only parking. Upwork will validate parking upon registration. Upwork office is on fourth floor - sign in with the front desk under Upwork on the first floor before going up to the office.
