Today few disagree that globalization is critical for company success. However, creating and managing a global team is challenging for companies around the world. Collaborating to achieve project and company goals while overcoming language differences and cultural perspectives requires well-honed communication, teamwork and management skills.

When the global teams is also 'virtual' with employees, suppliers and partners spanning multiple time zones from Asia to the US, Europe and the Middle East, an even greater level of respect, understanding and skill is needed for success.

This program co-sponsored by GABA in partnership with with CSPA, SiliconFrench, HispanicNet, NetIP, and SIPA will provide insight into the techniques, tools and processes that US, European and Asian companies and managers have used to successfully manage global teams for success.

Panelists will include managers from US companies responsible for teams in Asia and Europe, expatriates from the US in other countries or vice versa and entrepreneur or CEO of an Asia or European company with operations (and teams) in the US.
