“Going beyond language: understanding the British mindset”
22 February 2018

Building successful business relationships with people from other countries requires more than simply speaking their language. Cultural understanding is also essential for us to be able to interpret and respond to the behavioural and communication patterns of our overseas counterparts.

This fun but informative seminar will give you cultural insights into what makes the British tick and will offer practical advice for building relationships with British partners – and interpreting what they really mean.

Date: 22 February 2018
Handelsbanken, Blasieholmstorg 12, Stockholm
