Cross Cultural Training
Cross Cultural Training, Workshops & Seminars
We can provide you with an analysis of the cultural factors affecting your business – whether relating to different cultures within your own company and organisation (e.g. in relations between parent and subsidiary) or in relations with customers, suppliers and associates. We will work with you to establish an action plan to meet the challenges and opportunities provided by these cultural factors. Active management of the internationalisation process and a conscious effort to acquire new skills in cross cultural competence will release fresh sources of competitive advantage.
We can prepare country or region-specific seminars for you from a database of more than 100 different countries, including all major business cultures, all EU member states, and many of the countries that are emerging as interesting markets – such as the Central Eurasian states.
Simply let us know what your target countries and/or regions are, and we will develop a suitable programme for you. Some cultures, such as Asian ones, take more time if you are from the West, and vice versa. We can advise you on what is reasonable to cover during the time you have available.
We have regional experts amongst our general cross-cultural trainers. We also have a wide network of resource people who can give up-to-date input on the cultures you are interested in. They often work alongside our generalists and can even advise on practical details where the purpose of the training is expatriation.
Given preparation time, we can also source experts on areas of highly specific interest – for instance people with inside knowledge of political attitudes to foreign investment in your target country, or with links to high-level contacts of use for your specific project.
In a world of rapidly globalising business, digital communications and politico-economic organisations (EU, NAFTA, ASEAN, etc.) the ability to interact successfully with foreign partners in the spheres of commercial activity, diplomatic intercourse and scientific interchange is increasingly essential and desirable.
