Language and culture vary drastically from one country to another and should be addressed as a organizational issue rather than an HR issue. But it is not just what you say but rather of how the message is conveyed.

While Northern Europeans might value directness, Thai people might avoid direct confrontations. Likewise, Europeans might grow up with multiple languages, they still find themselves lost in a new cultural environment. Language and culture can sometimes be: same same but very different, so to say.

#BIG18 aims to clarify how important are different languages and cultural sensitivities in the working environment? Can you afford being passive about not learning a new language and how much profit is lost in regards to ineffective communication?

According to Deliotte University research, 82% of people questioned believe that culture is a competitive advantage in a global world and can also be the deciding factor during times of change: Mergers, acquisitions or international expansion. 

What the audience can expect: 

  • How to create more high-impact customers and employees
  • Different perceptions of time across cultures
  • To meet language professionals, experienced coaches as well as foreigners who have successfully integrated into Thai culture
  • How stereotypical thinking can negatively affect your business
  • The importance of non verbal communication

So to say, get ready to learn the language of the world.
