Intercultural Training in Dubai by Princeton Academy

As markets continue to globalise and technology opens up new international collaboration opportunities, more executives have to work across the barriers of culture, language and geography as never before.

At its core, this cross cultural workshop is about understanding business etiquettes rooted in specific cultural contexts, discerning social etiquettes and traditions that govern global business behaviour.

This workshop will help you build deeper connections by developing and cross cultural sensitivity aspects like communication, religion and traditions.

Our senior faculty is immersed in the complexities of working in different cultural environments, with international commercial experience and has lived and worked in multiple countries over an extended period.

Key Benefits:

In addition, we provide you with practice-oriented recommendations designed to help your business success.
