About this event

Tuesday, December 14, 2021 | 2 – 3 p.m. ET | Communitech Virtual Hub

Remote work has dramatically shifted the workplace landscape and has become our new normal. The change in workplace composition also requires a shift in strategy to hire, build and lead remote teams. How do you find high-quality remote workers? How do you coach remote teams to be high-performing when working across regions, cultures and age groups?

Through a neuroscience lens we will dive into how to hire and optimize communications amongst a diverse and/or distributed team to increase productivity and strengthen team culture.


Richelle Matthews, COO, Global Talent Accelerator

Richelle Matthews researched the neuroscience of acculturation at Royal Roads University, where she completed her Master degree in Intercultural and International Communication. In a nutshell, she knows why diversity can create "white noise" in our brains, and how to fix it. A social entrepreneur and tech startup strategist as well as thought leader, Richelle has worked in Canada, the U.S., Bangladesh and multiple countries in Africa.

Organizer Communitech

Organizer of AMA: Finding and Building Remote Teams that "Work"

Communitech was founded in 1997 by a group of entrepreneurs committed to making Waterloo Region a global innovation leader. At the time it was crazy talk, but somehow this community managed to pull it off. Today, Communitech is a movement of more than 1,400 companies – from startups to scale-ups to large global players. 

Communitech helps tech companies start, grow and succeed in three distinct ways.

  • Communitech is a place – the center of gravity for entrepreneurs and innovators. A clubhouse for building cool shit and great companies.
  • Communitech delivers programs – helping companies at all stages with access to capital, customers and talent. We are here to help them grow and innovate.
  • Communitech partners in building a world-leading ecosystem – making sure we have all the ingredients (and the brand) to go from a small startup to a global giant.
