Expatknowhow for intercultural training and relocation support
Welcome to expatknowhow
Your expert guide to living and working in an intercultural world! We provide intercultural training and know how to organisations and individuals, equipping them with the essential skills and knowledge they need to communicate effectively across cultures, and to develop meaningful intercultural relationships.
We design and deliver bespoke training programmes to address any intercultural or cross-cultural challenges you or your organisation may face. You may have a multicultural team that needs to improve inter-team communications, an overseas office, colleague or customer you need to build a stronger working relationship with, or perhaps you have to prepare for an important business trip that will take you into a culture you're unfamiliar with. Whatever your objective, we will tailor a training solution that meets your specific requirements and brings about the results you want.
The international nature of business and the need to allocate skills wherever they are required, make it likely that many of us will experience relocation during our careers. If you're responsible for relocating staff to other countries, or you are about to be relocated yourself, expatknowhow can provide advice and practical support for individuals and families relocating anywhere in the world. Our intimate knowledge of the Thames Valley region enables us to provide comprehensive assistance to businesses relocating staff into this area of the UK.
We live in a world that is more globally connected than at any time in history; a world where there are fewer barriers than ever before to restrict where we can live or work; a world where more of us are choosing to adopt a globally mobile lifestyle. To take full advantage of the exciting opportunities presented by this new level of global connectivity requires us to be culturally aware, and to have an understanding of intercultural dynamics.
In spite of - or perhaps even because of globalisation, differences in cultural identities remain robust, so that even though we may be more globally conscious than ever, to successfully communicate with, interact with, and develop quality connections with people outside of our own culture, still necessitates us acquiring an in-depth knowledge of the culture in question.
Even for those businesses not directly involved in international trade, the wide-ranging, far-reaching effects of globalisation mean they will increasingly find themselves in situations where there is an intercultural dimension.
However cultural issues may impact on your business, expatknowhow can support you with training, advice and practical solutions to help you thrive in the new, global environment.
