How do you build trust and interpersonal relationships between team members who are separated by distance, by language and by culture?
SkypeRead is a team-building activity for remote teams, where members live and work in different countries and use English as a working language.
The activity is based around doing a read-through of a Hollywood movie in a Skype group call. It’s about creating a virtual, culturally-neutral space where teams can (a) have fun, (b) go outside their comfort zone, and (c) improve their English-language communication skills.
