The Cross Cultural Awareness Programme is designed not only as an introduction to cultural and diversity awareness, but also a practical guide to communicating effectively across different cultures.
In today’s multicultural society and interconnected business world, every business will benefit from our Cultural Awareness Training. Being culturally aware provides a real advantage to businesses and individuals who work internationally. In fact without this awareness, huge unintentional mistakes can be made which seriously impact on doing business in other countries and in other cultures. Being culturally aware enables companies to get the very best from culturally diverse teams and work forces.
Both Public Sector organisations and Commercial Businesses benefit tremendously from our Cultural Awareness Programmes. In the Public Sector, a partial list of organisations that we work with in the areas of Cultural Awareness are: Job Centres, Council Offices, Multicultural Centres, Education Departments, Hospitals, Police and Health Establishments (both NHS and Private).
In the Private Sector companies that do business globally or have multicultural clients or employees from different cultures benefit from our Cultural Awareness Training Programmes. We conduct specially designed Cultural Awareness Programmes for companies outsourcing or off-shoring their business processes to BRICS(Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa), MINT(Mexico, Indonesia, Nigeria and Turkey), the Middle East or other nations.
Our Cultural Awareness Training Programme covers all important aspects that managers need while working across cultures or in Multicultural Teams. Some of the key areas focused in our Cultural Awareness Training workshops are as follows:
Our Country Briefings provide practical tips and insights on how to build lasting global business relationships and achieve success in your international business negotiations. It is an excellent way of providing crucial introduction to business etiquettes and cultural dos and don’ts for different countries. We have developed Country Briefings of more than 70 key global business cultures with in-depth information on Culture & Lifestyle, Business Skills, Communication Styles, Negotiation and Meetings, Social and Business Etiquettes and Security and Travel Information.
