Tips for succeeding in remote work from a remote-first founder

Business is Boring is a weekly podcast series presented by The Spinoff in association with Callaghan Innovation. Host Simon Pound speaks with innovators and commentators focused on the future of New Zealand. This week he talks to Matthew Chapman from HR search company ChapmanCG.

Matthew Chapman, founder of HR search company ChapmanCG, has grown his business to the point that it’s attracted significant investment from a listed Japanese company. In addition to building ChapmanCG, he’s also helped build an eco-resort island in remote Indonesia, and was part of a global team that founded one of the toughest ultra races in the world (the Snowman Race in Bhutan) and now splits his time between Singapore and his farm in Muriwai, New Zealand.

To talk about the journey, his tips for remote working, and why he chose to live in New Zealand, Chapman joined us by Zoom from Auckland’s west coast.
