Abstract (up to 100 words)

Due to emigration, local censorship or just lack of resources, some affiliates in the CEE end up having to handle geographic dispersion as part of they business model. This means less face2face time, different timezones, holidays etc. This roundtable is a place were interested parties can exchange ideas and best practices on how to make such an organization successful and hopefully come up with a learning pattern.

How will this session be beneficial for the communities in the region of Central and Eastern Europe?

The issue addressed by this roundtable affects a large number of CEE affiliates. Having a learning pattern come out of it would help communities overcome such problems.

Special requirements

I would prefer not to be the facilitator for this session, so having a facilitator would help.
