Offer More, Earn More: Expand Your Business with a Virtual Team

  • Jul 18, 2012 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

The shift towards a global economy has made virtual teams an integral part of the organizational chart at companies like IBM, Cisco and GlaxoSmithKline. But you don’t need to work for a Fortune 500 company to collaborate and work with fellow professionals across town and around the globe.

Thanks to the Internet and the widespread reach of electronic communications, virtual teams are a lucrative way for independents to work with multiple clients through a single portal.

Join us on Wed., July 18, to hear how Libbie Hough created the virtual team behind her marketing company, comma (Communication Matters), and how she has managed its growth and success.

Learn how you can be an effective virtual team member and how to seek out these opportunities for your business. Libbie is a client strategist, business development leader, and owner of Communication Matters.  Her own team includes graphic and Web designers, trade show specialists, writers, editors, and PR strategists.

    Libbie shared her professional journey -- from social worker to communications professional to virtual team leader -- and the many lessons she has learned along the way. Her presentation was packed with useful information and tips for anyone interested in successfully joining or starting a virtual team. Thanks again, Libbie. Great job!
