The Members of Virtual Team Talk are delighted to invite you to our annual Internal Affair.
We are a group of people who know that working in virtual teams can be just as joyous as working in the collocated space. We know it doesn’t work for everyone, but we know that it works for us – and we understand the deliberate practice it takes to be able to operate as a remote / virtual / dispersed or even hybrid team.
On Wednesday 14th June, we will be gathering online for twelve hours from 10:00 CEST to 22:00 CEST (4:00 EST to 16:00 EST).
We have been creating a programme of talks and discussions around aspects of working in virtual teams. We’ll continue to massage the schedule as we go along, right onto the day, so that the schedule can adapt to those wanting to attend.

Whether you can pop in for a couple of hours or whether you would like to spend a day online, we’d love to see you there.
Here’s how you can participate.
Click here and sign up to be part of Virtual Team Talk.
You will then be invited to our communication and collaboration hub in Slack, where you can follow how planning for the event is unfolding and pick up your joining instructions.
You’ll also have access to our online co-working space in Sococo.
On 14 June, you will need to have access to Slack to follow the schedule and any developments during the day.
You’ll also need to be able to access Sococo (via Chrome) and Zoom.
You will need a microphone and ideally a quiet space (so that you don’t have to be constantly muting/un-muting yourself) and a camera is important if you want to connect with those you haven’t met before.
Don’t forget to wear your best smile.
That’s probably all you need to know for now.
