Presentation: Being a mediator in a distributed multicultural team


This presentation highlights my experience of working in a distributed multicultural team.

I will focus on an approach towards hierarchy; different styles of communication; trust issues; lack of informing; work-life balance; correspondence rules. I will discuss how educational background and hobbies help to succeed and why nowadays a good IT specialist is a curious one.

I expect to convince you that despite all difficulties, an intercultural team is the best for your professional development.
