FULLY BOOKED - Cross-Cultural Competency - A Morning Seminar with Cultural Bridge

  • Tuesday, 27 November, 2018

AmCham Hungary cordially invites you to the next morning seminar about



The environment we live and work in is becoming more and more diverse. Economy is getting global, many business organizations expand their operation to new markets. Traveling is no longer a privilege of executives, employees travel internationally to meet their peers and clients in different countries, and talents are sent to new locations to develop new skills. Progress in technology and existence of new communication platforms make it possible to communicate with people from the most distant countries and to work on projects with colleagues from all around the world. Various generations meet at the same workplace due to growing longevity. Employees of mixed cultural background increase diversity even domestically. Being exposed to difference is becoming reality of each of us.

Lot of research has been done to identify the set of skills needed to succeed in such environment. And a growing number of organizations starts to focus on development of their employees’ cross-cultural competency which helps them navigate this volatile, ambiguous and constantly changing reality. Join this event to learn about impact of this skill on business operation through a case study of a multinational corporation.
