Navigating International Cultures – Travel Wellbeing Webinar

Navigating International Cultures – Travel Wellbeing Webinar

Delivered by Jackie Black, Director & Training Consultant, Digital Business Communication Ltd
19th April 2018 @ 10:30-11:30am BST

Webinar Overview:

In this webinar, Jackie will give a brief overview of the cultural dimensions commonly used by interculturalists to define culture.

She will introduce key aspects of culture which are important to you as professional travellers: cultural values, attitudes, beliefs and customs.

You will then have an opportunity to explore your own cultural assumptions, compare the differences in cultural values between your home country and others and consequently, take away tips on how to develop intercultural awareness and become more competent living and working in an international environment.

Topics covered:

  • What do we mean by ‘culture’? Identifying the different elements of culture.
  • The importance of communication: an awareness of subtle cultural differences in theway we communicate. Understand how your own style may be perceived by other cultures and get practical clues as to when, how and why you may want to adjust your communication style.
  • Non-verbal communication: body language, personal space etc.
  • Doing business across cultures: adapting to differences in management and working styles, business communications and negotiation styles, hierarchy and status, team-building, running a meeting, the perception of time.
  • Cultural values and attitudes in the workplace: women in business, dress code, etc.www.maiden-voyage.comCopyright © of Maiden-Voyage.com Ltd

• Socialising and building relationships: social customs and etiquette for dining out, entertaining, giving of gifts.

As a result of this webinar you will:

  • Appreciate how the underlying values of other cultures influence behaviour and attitudes at home and work
  • Understand the cultural orientation of international colleagues and partners; what makes them ‘tick’.
  • Be able to apply newly acquired cultural knowledge to minimise potential conflict and work confidently with people from other cultures.
  • Recognise the impact of cultural difference on relationships and find ways to build successful international relationships.
  • Navigate your way safely through the challenges of international cultures with a new, culturally intelligent mindset which will enable you to take full advantage of new experiences.

French-Cuban writer Anais Nin: We don’t see things as they are: we see them as we are. Learn to take off our cultural lens and look at things as others see them.

This webinar is will benefit both male and female business travellers.

WINiT session in honor of International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month

Founder + President Michelle (Mick) Lee returns to the NYCBTA to celebrate women leadership in our industry.

Real Talk.  Huge Mistakes.  Life changing decisions.

In this session, you will learn from leaders about how they have created their own path, re-invented themselves and their programs, made some (huge) mistakes on the way and how women may (or may not!) lead differently than men.  This discussion transcends buyers and suppliers, interns to retirees and every level between.  It has been structured as a “fire-side” chat with audience participation to ensure that the discussion centers around what attendees think is important.  Each speaker will share epic fails, key support mechanisms and ultimate successes.

  • Hank Benedetti, Managing Director, American Airlines
  • Linda Oliver-Eckhardt, Vice President, Client Strategies, Travel Leaders Corporate
