Global Fluency: Cross Cultural Communication Training to Improve Your Business

  • April 20, 2021
    12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

The World Affairs Council Upstate in partnership with Upstate SC Alliance invite
you to a two day online training designed to develop strong and effective
cross-cultural business skills.

The current global economy calls for employees to possess the necessary skills to interact effectively with people from different cultural backgrounds.  Knowing how to market in an appropriate context, negotiate and not alienate, forge trust and successfully communicate are keys to success. 

This workshop provides participants with the tools to be more fluent in any global business setting with a focus on the differences between and among Germany, France and Japan.

Renee Bishai, Columbus World Affairs Council Director of Global Fluency, will be conducting the workshop.

  A few quotes from past Global Fluency training attendees:
“I would recommend this training to anyone involved in international business, travel, students going abroad
and anyone interested in stepping outside their comfort zone.”
“The speaker/trainer was excellent, the materials were well worth the price, and the simulations/role play
exercises were invaluable.”
“So glad to have learned the appropriate and various ways of handing someone my business card, and receiving theirs, depending on their culture.  Who knew?!”
