expatknowhow works with individuals and organisations to provide them with the tools, information and understanding they need in order to work together successfully in multicultural teams, to do business overseas or to return home after an extended period living and working abroad.
Through our expert support and cross-cultural training programmes, we make sure that everyone – whether employer, expatriate or family member – is fully briefed and as well prepared as they can be for what lies ahead.
For businesses we help staff settle quickly and smoothly so that they can be productive right from the outset.
For individuals and their families we share expert, country-specific knowledge to give them the best possible start to their new life and minimise culture-shock.
Perhaps you are a business manager responsible for the support and training of staff, a team leader looking to get the best from a multicultural group. You might be about to embark on an important business trip, or simply be an individual making plans to be living or working abroad in the near future, For all of these and many other situations, expatknowhow has the specialist expertise to help you on your journey.
Stating that the world seems to be getting smaller is a rather tired cliché - but it is true that faster, more affordable transport and innovations in communication technology have made travelling and doing business on a global scale more accessible than ever. But while distances may seem to be shrinking, the cultural differences between countries remain more resilient to change.
Most of us have experience of international travel – even if just from holidays. But even a location familiar from a vacation can become an alien environment when there is a need to do business or reside for any length of time.
Of course, you don't even necessarily have to travel to have a cross-cultural encounter. Many large organisations bring together staff from a wide range of cultural backgrounds, and technology can enable people from different countries to work in the same ‘virtual' environments.
Quality business relationships and fulfilling Expat lifestyles can only be achieved through developing a knowledge and understanding of the host culture.
Make the unknown familiar - contact us today by email or telephone +44 (0)1235 855 236 to start your journey to successful understanding.
