Lauren Razavi

I'm Lauren Razavi, an award-winning writer and strategist who works across Europe, the Middle East and Asia. I was an early adopter of remote work and have lived as a digital nomad since 2013.

Right now, I'm a tech policy fellow at the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change and a founding board member at Plumia. I offer expert talks about the future of work and related topics via The Next Speaker agency.

I'm author of the upcoming book Global Natives: The New Frontiers of Work, Travel & Innovation (Holloway, 2021). It examines the rise of the work from anywhere movement, based on extensive research and years of first-hand experience. Get a sneak preview in my recent tweet storm.

I write a curated newsletter called Counterflows, where I share the best links about distributed work and borderless living each week. Subscribe now and join thousands of curious readers from around the world πŸ’Œ
