The training aims to improve on-the-job performance and effectiveness of people interacting with counterparts from unfamiliar cultures. 

Methodology and Approach

  1. The training is intended to improve individuals' on-the-job performance and effectiveness.

  2. The training is grounded in research.

  3. The training emphasises practical application in business relationships involving people from different cultures. It is not about facts and statistics regarding a country, its people, or its economy.

I work with leaders from all industries who want to prepare for and become more effective in cultural dimensions and who want to help foster a better working culture, a shared sense of purpose and a more resilient organisation.

I work with leaders/managers to build an environment of common understanding, psychological safety, and prosocial purpose that helps everyone connect.

My approach is multidisciplinary and behaviour-oriented, based on my unique hybrid of expertise in intercultural relations and working in global businesses. The training always focuses on the participants’ needs, using an interactive approach and ensuring practical relevance.

My rich professional background also spans divergent sectors. This means I am well-versed in thinking outside the box and translating my expertise to the realities of different organisations and industries.

My perspective is truly international, informed by my diverse cultural background as well as my experiences travelling and living in different parts of the world. This means my advice isn’t limited to a one-dimensional understanding of culture.

And finally, my intercultural training is not the transmission of facts about one's new environment. It’s not etiquette training. It’s not "do's and dont's." It’s not a short course in a nation’s history and economy. It’s not hints for becoming comfortable in your new community , all of which the trainees can readily acquire from print- and web-based resources.

Who is it meant for?

Most work environments are no longer completely monocultural. This type of training is very useful for anyone who lives and works in an international or multicultural environment.

I specifically recommend intercultural training to the following:

  • Local governments, policy makers and lobbyists;

  • People working in culturally diverse environments;

  • Professionals who lead or are part of multicultural teams;

  • People coming to a new culture to live and work;

  • Professionals who work with clients or consumers from other cultures or who regularly do business with foreign companies;

  • Expatriates;

  • People who want to advance or develop their professional career in international or multicultural environments;

  • College students with an international focus.
