Speech Abstract :

During the session of Evelien Acun-Roos about ‘Building Trust With Your Teams’, you will discover why you need to take some extra effort when you want to build strong (distributed) teams. Together with the participants we will share ideas on how to build trust within your (distributed) teams. During this session you will learn more about credibility, reliability and intimacy, the building blocks of trust. This will not be a one-way lecture, it will be an interactive, engaging collaboration with hopefully a lot of practical tips for you to take along to your teams.
