How to be Culturally Aware for International Success

The Chartered Institute of Linguists (CIOL) |  28th March 2021

Talk overview:

Cultural and linguistic differences are one of the main areas businesses feel most challenged and “afraid” by when exporting to other countries. However, you don’t have to be exporting in order to need to be culturally aware. By simply chatting with a work colleague based in a different country or negotiating terms with a supplier abroad, if you are culturally unaware, then the way you communicate, move or even dress could harm your working relationship.

How to be culturally aware to succeed in Asia and South America

Business Insights International Festival of Business & Innovation  |  19th January 2021

Overview:

Exporting into a new market can be daunting if you don’t speak the language or you haven’t experienced the culture before. Culture and language are two of the critical success factors when exporting your products or services to other countries. These are key factors influencing the exporter’s decision of entering a particular market, and yet, they are two of the areas that are often overlooked.

During this talk, we will explain what it means to be culturally aware and analyse the Asian and South American cultures based on eight culture scales. There will be an opportunity to learn about different ways of doing business in different markets; from communication and organisation to leadership and etiquette. There will also be an opportunity to discuss and learn from incidents involving cultural misunderstandings, and we will share some tips on how to work effectively in multicultural teams.

Forum: Creating Brand – Cultural Relevance

Business Insights International Festival of Business & Innovation  |  19th January 2021

Overview:

Internationally speaking, our Brand can have unexpected connotations and implications. We design it as we review our business from our own business perspective and for the culture and markets that we are used to.

But what happens when you project internationally? Do certain words have different meanings? How is colour perceived subconsciously in different cultures? How do you go about meeting new contacts, what is the norm for saying hello and getting to know people? Should you expect to fit completely into the culture you’re approaching, or is there a sensible path where you meet in the middle and work on a mutual cultural understanding with your new international prospects?
