Global Business Culture has a particularly strong profile in the financial services sector. For more than a decade, we have worked in close partnership with many of the world’s leading financial institutions – including banks, insurance companies and accountancy firms – and have a proven record of assisting them to optimise the success of their international operations.

How we help

We help our financial services clients solve both strategic and day-to-day operational problems by developing the inter-personal skills their staff require to work effectively across international networks and with global clients.

Typical issues explored include

  • The impact of culture on international financial transactions
  • Working successfully with colleagues or clients in a specific region or country
  • Effective cross-border project teams
  • International pitching and cross-selling
  • Preparing for an international secondment
  • International business culture for conferences and retreats

Our approach

Drawing on an in-depth understanding of the finance sector, Global Business Culture is able to develop highly focused training initiatives which address the specific requirements of each of our financial services clients. Our training programmes are dynamic and practical and provide immediate, tangible benefits. We work with all levels within an organisation – from the most senior executives through to new recruits and aim to add value at both the strategic and day-to-day interpersonal level.
