Modern, multi-national organizations need their employees to be able to work as effectively in virtual teams as they do in co-located teams, but often find people lack the necessary skill-sets and knowledge to do so. Global Business Culture’s virtual team-building programmes are designed to give team members and leaders the insight, knowledge and practical skills needed to bridge culture, distance and time. We aim to give delegates an effective toolkit which can be used in all virtual situations
The immediate financial and scale benefits of offshoring are obvious to all and most major organisations make the decision to move part of their operations to areas such as China, India or Eastern Europe. Huge amounts of effort are put into selecting the most appropriate partners and locations but one part of the process that is often overlooked is the difficulty inherent in aligning working practice and process with new colleagues in a completely different part of the world.
GBC has a particularly strong profile in a number of different sectors – specifically the law, finance, manufacturing and telecoms. For more than a decade, we have worked in close partnership with many of the world’s leading institutions in these sectors and have a proven record of assisting them to optimise the success of their international work. We help our clients solve both strategic and day-to-day operational problems by developing the inter-personal skills needed to work effectively across international networks and with global clients.
The impact cultural differences have on global business and the issues surrounding making international virtual teams work effectively are topics which can add enormous energy to any business conference. Keith Warburton, the founder of Global Business Culture, is a conference speaker of international renown who is in great demand on the conference circuit. He can add great value to any conference by fully engaging the audience and making the topics relevant and directly related to delegates’ day-to-day business dilemmas.
Many delegates who attend Global Business Culture seminars or who hear one of our consultants at a business conference are motivated to learn more about the impact that international cultural differences can have when working in the global commercial environment. In response to this demand, we have developed a comprehensive suite of information-based learning tools which can be accessed remotely by our clients. These resources include country profiles, e-learning courses and further reading lists.
