ONLINE EVENT: Intercultural Communication in the Workplace

Wednesday, 01 July 2020
12:00 - 13:00 GMT
£0-£10 + Fees

Join us on Wednesday 1st July 2020 for this hour-long webinar and learn about the Intercultural Communication in the Workplace with intercultural coach and trainer Eva Tarabichi.
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.

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