"Remote working, flexible working, smart working … just the explosion of jargon is a key indicator of the socioeconomic shift which signals the mass-market need for this book…. [I]f I could reach back through time and hand my early-millennial self a copy of Lisette Sutherland’s new book Work Together Anywhere, it would have been a priceless gift…. [It’s] a really comprehensive manual of checklists, considerations and questions … [a book] to dip in and out of regularly, taking pride of place on any workspace bookshelf - wherever it is."
