Modern Leaders Podcast with Roberta Lucca – Overcoming the personal and professional hurdles of COVID

Juggle Founder Romanie Thomas interviews serial investor and Co-founder of Bossa Studios, Roberta Lucca.

How hard has the transition to remote working been for Bossa Studios?

We thought it would be really rough for us, but actually it’s been much simpler than we thought. And I think it’s because of all of the tools that we have been using. We use Asana, Google Docs, Slack, you know, everything that is cloud-based.

What measures have you taken personally to separate work and non-work at home?

So I learned a new trick, which is basically to compartmentalise different spaces in my home. So, for instance, I have an area which is all about the film, video and podcasting and everything that I’m going to be putting out of the organization. And I have a little area where I’m facing the park, so that’s the place where I do creative work. We also have an office room that I share with my husband, where everything is about Bossa.

Do you see any opportunity amidst this health crisis?

One of the things that we are very careful with is to understand people’s perspective in terms of their mental health, because of the amount of bad news that we’re receiving every day. But I think people who play games and make games, we probably have something to teach the world: how to connect with other people remotely. And all of the stats that we’ve seen, people are spending more time online, more time playing games, trying to engage with each other. So it’s a good time for games, for sure.
