I currently find myself in the fantastic city of Chennai, India. Sadly it's a strictly business trip. I've flown in for six days to spend time with the Sellerdeck team and hire a new team member. Hiring outside the familiar waters of the UK has been a very interesting process. Sometimes it's a little frustrating, but it's been a masterclass in managing a distributed team.
In the old days life was fairly simple. You had a place of work; which probably had a desk and all the essential office equipment: desktop computer, phone, calculator, Spice Girls calendar, etc. However, roll forward a few years and its amazing how that model has changed. Thanks to technology and a certain amount of liberalisation, most people can work anywhere.
