Event description

Description

Hamburg is a hotspot of cultures, a melting pot of nationalities, languages and diversity. Young people from all over the world come here to work, study and live. Startup boast with the intercultural atmosphere and monthly international nights. every seem to embrace the differences and live in peace. But is it actually so?

Cultural diversityis not only a cool selling point for startups, but also a challenge that many companies seem to underestimate. Why is your Latin American CEO always late? Why does your Russian Front-end Developer always look upset? Why can't your Indian Marketing manager answer any question directly? With the increase of diversity, there is always an increase of tension, misunderstanding and the ways your employees interprete what is being said through their own cultural prism.

In order to successfully operate in today’s increasingly complex and diverse marketplace, international executives are required to develop greater awareness and cultural sensitivity towards cross-cultural issues when managing or working with diverse teams/international partners.


The aim of the workshop is to enable participants to develop the necessary intercultural competencies and confidence for successful business dealings within an international context.
