Let’s explore the interculturality puzzle together and bridge the culture gaps!

Being aware of cross-cultural communication differences and similarities is just the first step to removing barriers and helping teams to become more competent communicators locally, globally, and virtually.

In this session we are thrilled to welcome two speakers.

Author and interculturalist Robert Gibson will be joining us to share about his brand new book “Bridge The Culture Gaps:  A toolkit for effective collaboration in the diverse, global workplace”!

Jillaine Farrar, Vice President SIETAR Switzerland, will be providing an overview of some of her favourite intercultural resources and intercultural finds for leading global teams and projects.

This will also be a great time for newcomers to get to know SIETAR Switzerland and its members. Please do join us!
