Region Specific Cultural Training

Many of our clients divide their global organisations along regional lines which may leave people working across EMEA or APAC, for example. These people have more specific training needs to help them work as effectively as possible across a particular region.

They need to understand the differences in approach to business that they are likely to encounter as they deal with a variety of different countries – Sweden and Saudi Arabia may both feature in an EMEA remit!

These region-specific seminars are, therefore, designed to help people navigate through the complexities of the multiple cultures and approaches they are likely to encounter. The seminars are practically-based and designed to give delegates a tool-kit of ideas they can take away and use immediately.
