Weekend Workation – How to make flexwork work

95,00210,00 p.p.

Join us in Alkmaar, the Netherlands, from 24th to 26th of May for a weekend of networking, workshops, fun activities and healthy food. This Weekend Workation brings together people who’d like to meet like-minded flex-workers. It’s also for everyone who wants to get a taste of remote work life. And it’s a great opportunity to experience what it’s like to go on ‘workation’!

General info

Working from anywhere, anytime gives us so much freedom! Or … not?! Let’s find out how to be productive AND enjoy the perks of flexwork!

With the freedom of working more flexibly comes responsibility. We have to manage how much we work – and when it’s time to stop. Is it possible to work less hours and still be more productive? How do other flex-workers do it? What can we learn from each other?

SOEPP is a wonderful place in the heart of Alkmaar. We spend a weekend there together, inspiring and helping each other. Experienced flexworkers give tips on how to structure your work time, so you can enjoy the perks of flexwork more. You can share with the group what you are struggling with, we exchange best practices and work on practical solutions.

On top, we practice the fun part – how to regularly take breaks, try out hobbies that energize you and help to switch off, enjoy healthy food and conversations with like-minded people. We offer yoga, fitness, walking, SUP, wakeboarding and kitesurfing – find out what recharges your battery!
