Like a lot of people, I’ve been working from home during the pandemic. Since I worked remotely for Ideba before (and will continue to work from home once the world completely opens up), I count myself lucky that the switch to virtual meetings and interactions was a seamless one. That is not to say that it has been entirely easy not having real-life get-togethers and team-building activities. Even though I enjoy the solitude and focus working from home brings, I admit I’m lately feeling a little zoomed-out and virtual-fatigued and if the last 18 or so months have convinced me of anything it’s the importance of real human connection.

That is why I’m especially looking forward to our first in-person QBR in Florida coming up in September. It’s been a while since we have all been in the same place together and I’ve missed the interactions and adventures we as a team have experienced in the past.

I’m sure many memories and stories will be made in Florida that will go down in Ideba folklore. Watch this space…
