Spearline share three episodes from their current podcasting series.

Remote Working in a Changing World

In the newest episode of their podcast, Kees Hendrickx and Josh O’Farrell are back, hosting from an entirely new podcasting environment.

The Spearline Podcast is now remote working, with the hosts interviewing other “Spearliners” to find out how they’ve been getting on in their new home offices, the challenges they’ve faced and the future of the office environment.

Spearline delve into any challenges they are facing, the perks of remote working and how the working environment could be forever changed.

This episode has a selection of Spearliners talking about their different experiences with their departments. Kees and Josh will be speaking to:

  • Service Delivery Manager Shona O’Donovan
  • Systems Administrator Daniel Popielnick
  • Customer Engagement Managers Laura Coughlan and Brendan Clark

Laura, Shona, and Brendan were able to discuss how vital it is to keep in contact with your customers, and how new relationships have actually grown stronger since remote working, due to the need for constant communication.
