What is Cross-Cultural Training?

The world is increasingly international. The idea that we now live in a "global village" is no longer a perception – it is a reality. Across national borders, corporate office networks have grown, supply chains have extended, distribution channels have spread. In today's business world, cross-cultural skills and understanding are vital tools in ensuring effective international working practices and commercial success.

We offer two categories of cross-cultural training:

Cultural awareness training

This programme is designed to provide participants with:

  • a more sophisticated understanding of potential cultural differences and variations
  • cultural knowledge and insights to reduce possible misunderstandings when working across borders
  • practical skills to ensure effective cross-cultural communication in a wide range of business situations
  • strategies for building and maintaining harmonious and profitable commercial and professional relationships with international colleagues, partners and clients

Culture-specific training

Depending on client requirements, these training programmes are tailored to focus on one or more specific national cultures.

Training formats and locations

Our cross-cultural training programmes are delivered in an interactive workshop format, either at our training centres or on client premises.
