It is my pleasure to announce that I was invited to speak for Rotaract UN. The topic:

Have you ever encountered cultural misunderstandings in your workplace communication?

This session explores becoming more aware and fostering a deeper understanding of cross-cultural communication. The session will include a foray and discussion into the Hofstede Model and give the attendees the opportunity to connect and collaborate with others through conversation and completing exercises on Power Distance, Uncertainty Avoidance, Individualism versus Collectivism, and Masculinity versus Femininity.
