Lunch & Learn – The impact of cultural differences in international business

March 23 at 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Join the Netherlands American Chamber of Commerce for an interesting Lunch & Learn where Peter van der Lende will walk us through the dimensions of cultural differences to help you bridge the cultural gap.
Working with people of different nationalities is very common nowadays. In addition to overseas offices, companies are expected to embrace employees to work remotely in an international environment. No matter the size of companies, their providers
as well as their clients tend to come from beyond their
geographical borders. Cultural differences are an
undeniable part of international business.
Each country, each nationality, has a culture of its own. However, these differences are not always recognized as a driver of lacking results or friction within teams.
