Here comes innovation



ASK Training model


Our master classes “Cross Talk”™ are designed to stimulate topical discussion, create forums of knowledge and develop change. Using our ASK™ Model we coach and mentor organisations how to integrate awareness, skills and knowledge to increase performance. Communication is vital for all organisations. Globalisation has made cross cultural understanding business and the financial return on training is an asset which adds value. Cultural competence helps you to understand how and why people think, act, and do business in the way they do and also what they think of you. Cultural differences can result in a variety of approaches to business, even when English is used as the common language. Cultural competence training can help you succeed, by raising awareness of: How people from other cultures think, behave, and approach business.
