Become the Culture Expert Inside your Organisation.

Operating globally brings many challenges and each regional/local office is different. With diversity becoming one of the most important pieces of the organisational environment, the management of culture is a central factor for the success of the organisation as a whole.

Topics such as employee engagement, productivity, communication, teamwork, leadership, employer branding and over 35 other organisational areas, touch organisations globally, yet every location has its own particularities.

For organisations where identifying cultural differences and the problems that may arise is a key concern, we have the perfect solution: The Cultural Ambassador Program.

This two-day workshop will help you to visualize the impact corporate culture and national culture have on your operations, gain skills to effectively identify the cultural challenges within your organization and take measures to minimize their effects.

You will take home key lessons that help you to guide your organizations in working more effectively.
