Upcoming Cultural Awareness Training

Upcoming Cultural Awareness Training

The summer months are often somewhat quiet on the training front but this year seems to have bucked the trend as we have a whole series of cultural awareness training programmes in the diary in July and August across a wide variety of sectors.

We will be running:

  • Japan Cultural Awareness Training – for a project manager in the renewables sector who will be spending a couple of weeks per month in Tokyo over the next six months or so.  I’ll be mentoring him prior to his first visit and then on an ongoing basis – as well as doing some work with the extended team.
  • Cultural Fluency for Lawyers – the legal sector always plays a big part in the work we do in the cultural fluency field and we are running a series of more general cultural awareness programmes with lawyers and support service staff across 3 different global law firms.  As the legal sector becomes incereasingly global in it’s operations, lawyers need to be able to work seamlessly in an international setting.
  • General Cultural Awareness Development – we are just starting what, we hope, will be a long-lasting relationship with a major player in the Aerospace & Defence sector and our initial engagament is with a group of senior executives who work on a global basis and who, therefore, need to adapt quickly to new situations in many lots of different cultures.
  • Culture & Market Entry Strategy – I’m looking forward to spending time in London with a group of Relationship Managers from the ‘World’s Local Bank’ when we will be looking at how global cultural differences can impact on international market entry issues.

Renewables, legal, aerospace & defence and banking – quite a varied mix of interests and need which should test my own knowledge and flexibility over the next few weeks.
