Another wonderful evening co-created by Ideas Cartel, Brown&coThe Culture Canvas, Unsettled, The Resource, Flexyforce and Jeri Silverman

This meetup is centered around thought provoking discussions on remote working and building remote cultures, together with the role co-working spaces play in building communities and keeping people connected in an ever more lonely, location independent and virtual working world. We bring together very passionate people who will give you new insights into these “unknown territories”.

Book your ticket to  join us  in a beautiful & informal setting at The Old Foundry, Entrance on Ebenezer Road, The Waterkant, Cape Town, 8001 – the brand new location from Ideas Cartel. On Wednesday the 08th of August 2018.


Already our second meetup in a series of #flexyworking knowledge sharing and networking evenings with inspiring global thought leaders passionate about figuring out how technology & new ways of working impact the way businesses of the future will operate and maintain a company culture.

Meet the Creators and Contributors

Kaylee Dobie

After spending a few years working with Sun International, and a year teaching in South Korea, Kaylee started her branding career at a global design agency. She has worked on some of the biggest brands in Africa, such as Standard Bank and Metropolitan, as well as some global ones, like Pernod Ricard, SABMiller and JDE (Jacobs Douwe Egberts). As she has no fixed office, Kaylee can often be found exploring the globe while working with the Brown&Co team.

Brown&Co being a company operating on a Virtual Collective model – all working remotely but connected using the latest technologies. Kaylee has given herself the role of finding ways to create and maintain a company culture in a virtual way.   

If a brand doesn’t aim to positively impact the life of every person that engages with it, then why should anyone listen or care? This is Brown&Co and this also relates back to their company culture.

We look forward to learn and engage with Kaylee and are very grateful for her contribution & participation. Perhaps also have a look at her article for the Brown&co blog.

Schuyler and the team have been great and we look forward to hearing more about how co-working spaces help create communities and keeping people connected in an ever more lonely, location independent and virtual working world.


Be Unsettled is what they say and we can’t agree more. We’re very glad to have Unsettled as part of this meetup, as a remote working meetup will simply not be complete without Unsettled. Whether you’re going through an intentional career transition, or working remotely full time, Unsettled’s immersive coworking retreats give you the time, space and (un)structure to break out of your routine, build new relationships, and find new perspectives while growing personally and professionally in some of the world’s most inspiring destinations.

Feel connected, comfortable, and collaborative where ever you are. 

We believe this beautiful motto ties in with our evening perfectly and are excited to learn from their experience.

Nevo Habas

We’re very excited to have Nevo Hadas joining us on the evening. He has collaborated on a project called ‘The Culture Canvas’ which is about how to build team culture in distributed teams. They have created an e-book in collaboration with the Dutch Government and run workshops with large corporates.

We found it’s not about more or better technology. It’s about people, team dynamics and company culture.

We believe Nevo can bring us a lot of insights and knowledge with regards to building team cultures in distributed teams and we can’t wait to hear more from him!

Ideas Cartel, Jack Black Beer & the Duchess

For this event we have partnered with Ideas Cartel and we have a little surprise for you. The exact venue is the brand new venue from Ideas Cartel – The Old Foundry, Entrance on Ebenezer Road at The Waterkant, Cape Town.

Backsberg Wines

We are proud to have Backsberg Wine as one of our meetup sponsors – Backsberg was established in 1916 by C.L. Back. Over 100 years later, the farm remains family-run, maintaining its reputation for producing world-class fine wines. Second generation Sydney Back, who joined the winery in 1936, is considered to be one of the pioneers of the modern South African wine industry, positioning Backsberg firmly as one of the leading wineries in South Africa. His son, Michael, continued his legacy by taking the Backsberg brand overseas to export markets. In 2008, Michael’s son Simon joined the family winery, and is now steering the business with excitement and new ideas.
The winery is situated on the slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain just outside of Paarl, in the heart of the Cape Winelands. The property spans over 200 hectares with much of the land planted to vineyard. Winemaker Alicia Rechner heads up the winery, working closely with Michael and Simon Back to craft fine wines with great balance and drinkability.
