Workshops for international trade clients

Offering great value, practice-based advice and guidance on the skills needed for selling to people from different cultures and countries, our workshops are appropriate for those with operational level responsibility for selling outside the UK and senior staff who want to gain a better understanding of the subject.

We believe that cross-cultural awareness helps to increase employee engagement in a multicultural environment.

Understanding the influence of cross-cultural differences in areas such as management, human resources, advertising or negotiations shows that you are an organisation that embraces diversity.

We organise seminars and run workshops to help key personnel in sales, marketing and human resources learn about how to deal with cultural difference. Two popular seminars are shown below.

Iwona delivered an excellent interactive session about the practicalities of doing business abroad and the cultural nuances, which companies need to be aware of when attempting to enter the market. Iwona was an engaging speaker and our delegates went home extremely pleased with what they had learned.“
