PANGEO is Globalization Partners' annual conference designed to equip companies with the ideas, skills, and best practices to thrive in the new world of global remote work.

PANGEO derives its name from the 300-million-year-old supercontinent, Pangea, when the earth's landmasses were united as one. Today, the world has transformed itself — reunited once again in what we call PANGEO — a new world of opportunities without boundaries, as post-pandemic workforces move to remote and hybrid models putting the world’s workforce on one platform.

Our conference will bring together visionaries from around the world, who will discuss key trends, strategies, and personal experiences — designed to help you build fast and agile remote teams. During this free, three-day virtual event, attendees will get a chance to hear from experts on how to build efficient, high-performing global remote teams, how to create integrated employee experiences, and why both compliance and speed are critical for long-term success in 2021 and beyond.

Companies aspiring for the highest levels of international growth can gain a deeper understanding of crucial levers for speeding and smoothing their journey. PANGEO will cover everything your team needs to know about hiring international talent, reskilling at scale, supermind design, keeping your company compliant across borders, tapping into opportunities that lie in new markets around the world, and building productive remote teams to unlock the full potential of your company’s long-term success.

Tracks

The future of work is global and remote. To understand how companies are turning these trends into competitive advantage, PANGEO will cover three main tracks — Evolve, Grow, and Learn. These tracks are designed for CEOs, CMOs, CFOs, COOs, CROs, Heads of People, Heads of International, Heads of Global Mobility, Legal, and Compliance teams. 

Attendees will get a chance to hear from experts on how to build efficient, high-performing global remote teams, the importance of creating integrated employee experiences, and why both compliance and speed are critical for long-term success in 2021 and beyond.

Evolve

Establishing the Foundation of International Business Growth
The future of talent is dispersed — spread across 7 continents, and 24 time zones. How can companies establish a strong foundation and dig deeper for top global talent? What are the best practices for companies looking to evolve and grow their employment brands into international markets?

The EVOLVE track will help companies understand the first steps of building remote teams by tapping into the global talent pool.

Recommended For: Hiring Managers, People Operations, HR

Grow

Strategies to Scale and Succeed Internationally
The game of globalization is getting harder. Internationalization strategies are crucial to enter new and emerging markets. Picking the right approach for each market is critical for success. How can companies keep a global focus and formulate a long-term strategy to enter new markets?

The GROW track will help companies understand how to develop, grow, and execute strategies, and identify potential markets for expansion.

Recommended For: CEOs, COOs, CROs, CFOs, Heads of International, Sales

Learn

Staying on Top of Changing Laws and Regulations
Governments all over the world are constantly making and amending new rules for doing business and hiring employees. The difficulty in interpreting rules in a new market can mean that companies face a daunting task of operating compliantly. How can companies be up to date with rules in hard-to-operate jurisdictions?

The LEARN track will help companies understand and navigate the market opportunity and complexity from a compliance standpoint.

Recommended For: Legal, HR, Compliance teams, Heads of Global Mobility

For many companies, enhanced global reach is the linchpin in their corporate growth strategy. As a result of the remote work trend, barriers to entering the global workforce have been effectively demolished and its widespread acceptance means opportunity for everyone, everywhere.
