Join DU alum Nick Rizzi, Solutions Advisor at Epicenter Innovation and speaker and trainer at Abandon Average LLC, for a workshop on working outside of an office environment. Nick has successfully navigated working remotely and will cover automating work processes and how to make valuable connections in a virtual environment.



Recent events have left thousands of students and employees working entirely remote. Thousands of webcams have been sold, couches setup into workplaces, and cats are invading presentations. This adjustment isn’t an easy one to make. With our routines interrupted and our safe places filled with distractions at our fingertips, how do we effectively adjust to studying, learning, and working from home? Join Nick Rizzi as he discusses his experiences working from home over the last 4 years, the necessary steps you need to take to make the transition, and ensuring that this new transition is effective for you. We’ll talk tools, tips, timing, and questions during this webinar, so grab your notebook, your dog, and a coffee and register today!


This workshop is part of Project X-ITE's Xplore incubator program. In response to the COVID-19 crisis, we are opening our virtual workshops up to the public for free. We encourage entrepreneurs and innovators to join us for the full series, or drop into any individual sessions. The Xplore workshop series kicks off April 1 and will run through early June. See the full schedule here.


*The virtual meeting information will be sent once you register.*
