About this Event

Distributed Teams Conference


A seat at a big company’s headquarters can cost more than the employee's salary. Scale-ups have to rent more and more offices and lose track of who’s where doing what. Small companies can't afford offices that attract top talent.

Time. Effort. Costs. Building a tech team in 2020 is starting to sound like a Twilight Zone episode. What if there was a way?

The ‘one-office for all’ chains have been broken.

What if work had purpose, not a place?

Distributed Teams is a working setup growing in every industry. Much like Remote Work, the tech industry is leading the way in using Distributed Teams. A cost-effective working model in which your trust is solely focused on the team leader, who is responsible for all the management of the distributed team.

What if work was by design, not by default?

Employers are adapting and deploying new work models that promote productivity, creativity and overall happiness at work.

The future is distributed. A network of teams, agile, synched and each at their right pace, autonomous and articulated.

The world is changing. Are you ready for Distributed Teams?

📅 When?

From the 15th to the 17th of June, 2020.
