Intercultural Training What is fundamental to do successful business in the United Kingdom? How do the British tick? What motivates them when they talk to you? What are their reasons to put their efforts into getting to know you, like you trust you? Are there any things the Brits expect their foreign counterparts to change? Which ones? And finally: What are the firm spots of these famously polite and gentle people? This open workshop will try to answer these questions. We are going to walk into the British mind, gain understanding of the British peoples’ interpretations of life and their codes of behaviour – in business as well as in personal relationships. Our intercultural training course Doing Business in the United Kingdom will give you an impression of the cultural, political, historical and economic background of the country. The following list serves as an example of topics that are of significance in any cooperation with British partners, clients and employees and that will be handled in the course depending on the needs of the participants

  • Discussion topics, establishing and maintaining contact
  • Approach to work
  • Time management
  • Hierarchical structures
  • People management
  • Personal life and professional life
  • Special aspects of communication (taking part in meetings, performance interviews, conflict management, negotiations etc. using case studies)


The purpose of this training is to optimize your collaboration with partners from the United Kingdom.

  • Your contacts and projects run smoothly
  • You avoid misunderstandings and conflicts effectively
  • You save time, nerves and money

Case Study

A German company has recently acquired a specialist manufacturing British firm. Since most of the Germans have a good command of the English language, no post-integration training had been arranged. In their first operations meeting one of the English team members addressed the German colleague Dr. Schneider by his first name, who found it disrespectful and made a point insisting on his title and surname. Some other English colleagues were rather unforthcoming during the discussions and did not contribute much although they have been asked several times to do so. Instead some of them started talking about the British weather and the latest cricket match. How would you react? What might have happened here?

Target Group

Our training is aimed at specialists and managers who already have initial contact with people from the United Kingdom, or will have in the future, and require international competence for their occupation.
