The German Trade Office would like ton invite you to advance your intercultural competences by taking part in our intercultural workshop.

The training course will be led by Joanne Huang, a certified intercultural trainer with more than 10 years experiences within the field. You can find more information about Joanne Huang and her business brochure here.

Course description:
The Asian and European culture are fundamentally different which makes it difficult to assess the behaviour and thinking patterns of Taiwanese colleagues. A better understanding of the “other” culture helps to identify problems based on cultural differences and to avoid misunderstandings.  The conquest of cultural and mentality-based barriers during business negotiations results in a new and better understanding between colleagues from different cultures. In this practice orientated crash course we communicate country-specific business conduct and an adequate behaviour pattern.
