Overseas Cultural Awareness

Cultural issues may affect developing relationships and the impact they have financially on a business venture.

To thrive in the world of international trade, businesses need to engage “soft” skills in addition to “hard” skills like technology.

It is important to remember, first impressions count!

Foreign cultures have different ways of doing business, for example when it comes to planning ahead and keeping delivery times. Culture can be both a positive and negative influence and many companies struggle in the new and foreign environment. The important thing to always have in mind is that the foreign culture is not as we are used to at home.

This intercultural webinar will help you:

  • Understand how and when culture may impact communication with your clients.
  • Cultural awareness will help you to challenge any pre-conceptions.
  • Communicate efficiently and tactfully with clients, partners, and colleagues.
  • Strengthen your communication effectiveness with active listening.

The event is targeted at businesses in any sector that are interested in what it might take for them to export or that are currently exporting and need some tips on improving communication skills.
