Choose Life Podcast
Ben Sansen, coach, consultant and podcast host discussed in his 43rd episode the life and choices of a digital nomad with Koen Blanquart
How easily can you build a career remotely? And what does that *digital nomad* life look like in concrete terms? Koen Blanquart has been doing it for years and, in this episode, shares his personal experience about nomadic life. He works as a business consultant with a passion for diving and photography, which he enjoys doing in the *off seasons* of his life.
Over the years, this adventurous passion taught him an extraordinary amount about remote communication in a company, asynchronous working, and synchronous working, as well as made him think about the future of our job market and *the war on talent*. This makes for a fascinating and open conversation about the current challenges of our working lives.
