Cross-Cultural Training

Global Business Culture

Global Business culture was establised in 1996 and has been delivering cross-cultural training and cultural awareness consutancy to major global corporates ever since.  Our mission is to improve the cross-border commercial efficiencies in our clients’ operations by helping people understand the direct connection between improved cultural fluency and improved global profitability.

We take an intensely practical approach to issues around the impact that cultural differences can have when people and organisations work across the bariers of culture, geography, time zones and language.  We know that people look for real-life, tangible examples which they can relate to rather than academic theory.  Having worked across the globe on every continent we can provide those real-life examples and plenty of ‘light-bulb’ moments.

Cross-cultural trainingOur clients come from a range of sectors and backgrounds but over the years we have been particularly active delivering cross-cultural training to:

  • Law Firms
  • Financial Institutions
  • Professional Services
  • Telecomms
  • Pharmaceuticals

In addition to the face-to-face training we deliver, we are increasingly being asked to run virtual training programmes for clients who have employees spread across a number of different geographies and this client need has also encouraged us to develop Global Business Compass which is a comprehensive cultural awareness digital learning hub.

Through a combination on live-training, webinars, digital learning and a network of hand-picked partners around the world we are able to service our clients on a global scale.
