Intercultural Training for BI Norwegian Business School
LSIC was delighted to provide an intercultural training seminar to start off the BI Norwegian Business School’s Norwegian and International Insurance programme in London.
Every year a group of about 20 business students working in the insurance sector spend a week in London to learn more about UK insurance through a series of visits, lectures and presentations. The Working across Cultures seminar enabled the group to consider how they communicate with international contacts and gave them specific insights into British working styles.
Lecturer, Ornulf Daler, said ‘The cross-cultural seminar was an inspiring start to our programme. When you work with people from other cultures, even as close as Norway and Britain you need a good understanding of the differences to be successful. This short introduction was a very helpful in making us aware of the intercultural challenges we face.'
