Benefits of Attending

Differences come up in intercultural settings can lead to frustration and friction when people from different backgrounds attempt to work together. Using a set of lively interactive case studies, Mr. Neuman’s goal is to educate course participants on how to recognize and address intercultural differences for a more productive work environment.

Of course, there will be sufficient time to network in a pleasant atmosphere, so the forum provides the chance to expand and deepen personal connections with other people having an interest in HR.
