Next Friday Cyan and I are heading to Chicago for our inaugural Envato remote staff meetup! There’s going to be about 30 of us converging on the windy city for a few days of meetings, presentations, chats, coffees and work, followed by a day of “Amazing Race” around the city.
One of the oddities of our company is that this will be the first time I ever meet in person all of these people. It’s really amazing that we’ve worked together, in some cases, for over two years and never actually seen each other.
I’m very excited, though it’s going to be incredibly hectic. I’m hoping to have one-on-one meetings with everyone coming … so that’s like 20 something hours of meetings just there - yikes!
Happily afterwards Cy and I will be heading to San Francisco and California for 2 weeks which will be half work, and half pure holidaying!
There are five of us from the Melbourne office going, so although it’s going to be a horribly long trip over, it’ll be fun going as a group.
Photos to follow!
