RWL 009 – Toptal’s VP Sales Mark Bosma: Culture & How To Survive In A Remote Business

By Alex Wilson-Campbell, Founder, Remote Work Life

If you want to thrive within a remote setting or enable your team to grow then it’s crucial that you understand and connect with the culture of the business you represent.

In today’s episode of the Remote Work Life Podcast, I’m excited to speak to Toptal’s VP of Sales Mark Bosma about how to build a healthy culture within a remote business.

It’s fair to say that the Toptal team know a thing or two about building a successful remote business and the rapid growth of the business is a testament to that.

Mark’s knowledge and insights on culture could help you to understand how the best remote businesses operate and grow so I urge you to listen up and then read his excellent blog post entitled  ‘How to Build Culture in Remote Teams’.
