The Yonder Conference
The Yonder Conference is round table event bringing together leaders of distributed companies to share and learn from one another. Our 2017 session in La Jolla, California was a wonderful success! We can't wait for next year! If you're interested in joining us in 2018, please fill out the form at the bottom of this page.
Not a Conventional Conference
It’s a roundtable discussion for founders, owners, CEOs, and other company leadership. It's a chance for distributed organizations to get on the same page so that we can move industries in the right direction. We'll compare notes and share what we've all learned. We're keeping it small — just 20-30 people — invitation-only.
The object of Yonder is to get to know one another, share, and learn. Aside from some brief introductions, all sessions happen with an open discussion format. Bring your questions and ideas, and expect to learn a lot and make new friends.
We may cover some of the following topics....
- Timezones & calendar issues
- Distributed “not-a-fit” examples
- Scaling distributed teams
- Management styles
- Distributed project management
- Distributed lessons for collocated companies
- Distributed nomenclature
- Hiring for distributed teams
- Communication methods & tech
- When to meet face-to-face
- Building legitimacy
- Building intimacy, culture & loyalty
- Distributed vs. remote
- Product vs. service businesses
- IRS & legal issues
