Course overview
With more rapid than ever advances in technology and interconnectivity, the importance of possessing a global perspective has increased in most professionals’ work lives. 

Most professionals are satisfied to say, “I am a global citizen”, but are we really prepared for all the consequences of carrying on business in the international arena? Merely one aspect, of many, that we may not always keep in mind is that of intercultural awareness, especially from a global citizenship perspective. Being part of a nation that is culturally rich in diversity, one would expect that South African professionals can adapt quite easily to new cultures. It is, unfortunately, not so easy, and many common pitfalls regarding international cultural obliviousness can be easily avoided by focusing on certain key areas when designing your strategy to enter the international business arena. 

In this live CPD event, these pitfalls and focus areas are highlighted, and if developing your skill set with regard to international cultural awareness is of any importance to your professional development, why don’t you join us for the event?
