About DistanceLAB

Remote networking and skill development are essential in modern work-life, but mastering them requires practice. Whether you are an experienced professional or just starting your career, it’s valuable to explore the opportunities the digital world offers. DistanceLAB equips individuals with practical skills in networking, innovation, and digital readiness. Our tools, such as the formula for networking events, a team wellbeing app, and a communication skills test, provide practical tips for everyone. These tools are available online and can be used individually or in teams.

DistanceLAB recognizes the vast opportunities in remote work and business, alongside the complexity of interconnected soft skills. With a strategic plan, we aim to provide access to these resources, allowing everyone to broaden their horizons from the comfort of their home office.
