Global Business Culture has a particularly strong profile in the global telecoms sector. For more than a decade, we have worked in close partnership with many of the world’s leading telecommunications companies and have a proven record of assisting them to optimise the success of their international work.

How we help

We help our telecoms sector clients to solve both strategic and day-to-day operational problems by developing the inter-personal skills key personnel need if they are to work effectively across international networks and with global clients.

Typical issues explored include

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

Our approach

Drawing on an in-depth understanding of the telecoms sector, Global Business Culture is able to develop highly focused training initiatives which address the specific requirements of each of our telecoms 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 levels.

Supply Chain

We help our Global Supply Chain clients tackle both strategic and day-to-day operational issues by helping develop the key skills and knowledge-base needed to work effectively in today’s globalised and immensely competitive SCM environment.

Typical issues explored include

  • Effective cross-border communication
  • How to recognise what ‘good’ looks like in an unknown territory
  • Differing attitudes to contractual arrangements
  • Time-scales, planning and deadlines
  • Leading people from a distance
  • Understanding how my own culture might be part of the problem

Our approach

We work closely with our clients to understand their supply chain model before developing a programme which will address the precise issues they are facing in each geography. We aim to give delegates the knowledge and skill they need to help them operate as effectively on the international stage as they do in their home territory. The goal of the programme is to help clients develop a set of action plans going forward which can be of immediate, practical benefit to the organisation.
