The focus of our Intercultural Trainings is the U.S.A. The seminar sensitizes participants to both the obvious and the underlying differences between the two countries, our culturally-driven expectations and the differences in business etiquette. Participants learn to circumnavigate common problems, to conduct successful negotiations, to present convincingly to an American audience and to get off on the right foot for long-term assignments in the U.S.A.
