Many businesses in the 21st Century are complex global organizations with employees travelling around the world in pursuit of their organizational objectives.
International business travel, overseas assignments both long and short term, as well as video conferencing with colleagues and business partners around the world are the norm for many business people.  Often, these individuals find themselves facing miscommunications with counterparts from other cultures that go beyond simple verbal misunderstandings and hit at the very heart of cultural differences.

The ability to integrate cultural intelligence in global leadership roles will be the defining criteria for being successful in international endeavours.

Who will benefit from the workshop?

  • anyone travelling internationally on a regular basis
  • business owners selling products/services abroad
  • business owners sourcing supplies from abroad
