Event details:

90% of corporate employees are currently working globally, in at least one virtual global team. However, only 18% of globally working teams meet their intended goals. The cost of this inefficiency is tremendous for the employing entities and can to a large part be attributed to a lack of knowledge and skill in intercultural communication. It is assumed that intercultural communication can simply be learned on the job.

However, research has shown that the cost of the inability to handle intercultural encounters successfully is 11.000 £ per year and per employee, in the UK. A loss that can easily be avoided through training. This webinar gives participants a solid basis to understand the most important intercultural differences in business communication. It then takes this knowledge further and explores how to deal with these differences and become a truly skilled intercultural communicator.

What you will learn:

  • Getting to know the key differences in the 4 main communication patterns around the world. .

ICF ACC-certified, she delivers out-of-the-box global minded multilingual and multicultural thinking. She deeply cares about her clients: “I want you to be the best version of yourself WHEREVER in the world you may be”.
She choses to specialise in intercultural and expat training and coaching because she has been an expat for half of her life: as a school child, university student, professional in multinationals, expat spouse, expat mother and entrepreneur.
She has a big passion for this life style and understand it’s vast opportunities but also the multitude of challenges expats and international staff may face.

Before becoming a trainer and coach, she worked in international law firms and business associations in the sector of EU political interest representation.
This background gave her a thorough understanding of the experiences her clients make in their everyday work life, as well as the theoretical background to address intercultural situations effectively.
