Abstract: With the emerging new normal, more and more project professionals are asked to work collaboratively with others in a team environment. Effective communication works when there is a meeting of the minds between individuals and teams.

In this interactive presentation, Brett Palmer will present ideas for increasing team engagement for both in-person and online virtual environments. We will also look at various facilitative techniques that can be used, and software technology for remote distributed teams.
