Let me ask you a question, have you ever experienced a conference call or an international meeting that seemed to be a bulletproof success but turned out to a disaster?
In more than 80% it is a matter of cultural misunderstandings. Working successfully in an international job (F2F or virtually) requires excellent cross-cultural skills and preparation. But usually, the training on cultural intelligence is missed out on for two main reasons: lack of time & budget cuts.
We decided to start the CountryExperts.online platform to share our knowledge and connect professionals with individuals and companies working and living across cultures. The platform will also consist of a country specific knowledge data base, online webinars and courses. Within 1 year, we aim to present 50 countries in both paid and free modules and create a community of trainers to be easily connected to and booked by global clients eager to function better in the culturally diverse world.
In January 2016, we are launching a cutting edge, 1-hour long cross-cultural “check and cure” service for professionals who want to boost their cross-border collaboration skills and achieve more in 2016
