Multicultural Communications Workshops

Communicating across cultural differences

Almost every company now sells to (and employs!) people from many different cultures.

Here’s the thing:

Your customers’ heritage affects more than the languages they speak.

It’s not just about where they’re from.

Culture is also about who we are – for example:

  • Our age group (Millennials vs. Baby Boomers)
  • Our gender identity (cis male/female vs. binary trans vs. non-binary identities)
  • Our sexual orientation (rainbow vs. hetero communities)
  • Our social classes (Rich Kids of Instagram vs. the working poor)
  • Our religious, philosophical and/or political beliefs

“You cannot not communicate”
— Paul Watzlawick

Culture colours people’s relationships with your brand and your offers — as well as their expectations of marketing, advertising, support and customer care. (Did you know 74 percent of customers will buy more if customer care is provided in their language?)

Those expectations affect the full spectrum of human behaviour…

From the correct forms of address to B2B purchase decision processes…

…and from what’s considered acceptable attire to what counts as “awkward silence” in a conversation.

Getting the cultural nuance right will help you avoid mortifying blunders, live up to your values of fairness and equality, and enhance your relationships with customers, employees and partners.

The best session of the expo!

Great info! Definitely gonna lead that exercise you showed us with my team!

I can see how my company’s North American cultural dominance causes issues when my team interacts with people from other places! Now I have a great framework we can follow and a bunch of other stuff to look out for.

Learn to build bridges

Cross-cultural communication workshops cover the principles of successful multicultural communication in a fun and engaging way.

No lazy stereotyping! Instead, your team will learn behaviours that can defuse tricky situations and techniques that help them resonate with anyone on Earth. (Perhaps also Martians… but we haven’t been able to test that. Yet.)
