Country-specific cultural training strengthens your communication and collaboration with colleagues and business partners from a specific culture, country, or region.

We can organize training (face-to-face or virtual) from a single half-day workshop to a longer programme of 2-3 one-day modules, and we always customize the training content to your specific needs.

See below what past participants have to say about our country-specific cultural training and workshops.

Very relevant and hands-on training

"It was very relevant and hands-on training. It was great to have the possibility to address specific challenges from our daily work and get concrete feedback on how to handle that."

Lene Kjær Kirstein, Director, Regulatory Strategy – Chinese cultural awareness training for Lundbeck

I found the way that it explained the Danish way of working super helpful

"I found the way that it explained the Danish way of working super helpful, didn't realise why it was the way that it is – definitely helped me find my feet and understand how everyone works."

Julia English, Design Assistant, Bestseller Sustainability – Danish cultural awareness workshop BESTSELLER

Well-structured and flexible facilitation

"Besides the two facilitators' great professionalism and broad knowledge within the field of Hungarian history and culture, I found the probably greatest achievement to be the contagious commitment and personal drive of the facilitators.

This was exceptionally well supported by a well-structured and flexible facilitation that allowed time for reflection and focused upon the learnings of the individuals rather than focusing upon traditional and uninspiring group presentations."

Lars Drøgemüller Kjeldsen, Project Manager – Hungarian cultural awareness training for Coloplast

Very energetic presentation

"Very energetic presentation, and clearly a great knowledge and experience with the presenter. Also a good mix of exercises and presentation."

Tobias, Communications Coordinator, Customer Service & Logistics – Indian cultural awareness workshop for Novozymes

My cultural awareness increased substantially

"I have been living in DK for almost 9 years, but I still had interesting facts to learn that provoked a 'wow-effect' on me during the training.

I liked we were just a few people, so we were able to mention our own experiences during the training and the 'cultural coaches' were very experienced and open-minded.

We were different nationalities and it was fun to notice that each of us have different challenges, some focus on the decision-making process, others focus on work-life balance... some of their challenges were never strange to me. In the end, my cultural awareness increased substantially :)"

Ana de Knegt, RA manager, Global Quality, Brazilian – Danish cultural awareness training for Coloplast

A very good trainer :-)

"Our trainer (Annette) has a large amount of knowledge in this area, and a high energy level. She clearly WANT you to understand her points. She is a very good trainer :-)"

Henrik Bork Steffensen, Director, Danfoss RH – Chinese cultural training for Danfoss

I have already started to implement some of the things I learned in my daily work

"It was very enlightening! I really learned something new and it was a really good thing that the teacher was Indian himself - it gave a feeling of something authentic. And it was a good mixture of culture in a private light and culture in a business light.

I have already started to implement some of the things I learned in my daily work with my Indian colleagues and I have given my new knowledge to some of my other Danish colleagues who are also working with Indians."

Louise Mølholt, User Documentation Coordinator – Indian cultural awareness workshop for Danfoss

Very fine presentation with relevant topics

"Ethan was very knowledgeable and did a very fine presentation with relevant topics."

Lotte Groth Ladefoged, Senior Project Manager – Japanese cultural awareness workshop for LEO Pharma

A very good session

"VJ as being an Indian - knew exactly what he was talking about and shared some of his experiences from real life and he had a great way of sharing with us. A good mix about us discussing in small groups and VJ talking / discussing with us. A very good session."

Anette Holm Jæger, Customer Service & Logistic Co-ordinator – Indian cultural awareness workshop for Novozymes

The teacher was very open-minded and inspiring

"The teacher was very open-minded and inspiring. Other customs, other countries. That has clearly turned out. The vividness was very good."

Anja Fiebing, Variant Configurator Consultant, IT – Danish cultural awareness training for Danfoss

It was very hands-on

"I liked that it was very hands-on. Good cases and specific suggestions on how to solve issues. Often training like this can be a bit fluffy, but this was really good. I could relate it to the specific experience I have working with Chinese colleagues. Annette was very engaging."

Gitte Esmann, Global Market Access Manager, Global Pricing and Market Access – Chinese cultural awareness training for Lundbeck

I am now much more aware of how to approach Indians

"I am now much more aware of how to approach Indians and I am more aware of why they act as they do.

My communication towards them has changed and I know what and how to communicate to them if I need something to be done. I also respect more that things are not to be done 'my way' but 'their or maybe a compromised way'."

Simone Hoffmann, Global Category Manager – Indian cultural awareness training for Danfoss

Good with a lot of examples that we can relate to

"Much hands-on and interactive discussions. Good with a lot of examples that we can relate to. Really good to have Szilard there to tell about Hungary. Very important to emphasize that DK is often the country that is different from the rest."

Maria Louise Carøe, Team Manager, Pilot – Hungarian and Chinese cultural training for Coloplast

I learned a lot of useful stuff and had a lot of fun

"Vijay was a very good instructor, he made the course very lively. I learned a lot of useful stuff and had a lot of fun. Thank you very much."

i.V. Michael Bauer, Sen. Manager Customer Relationship Management, Global Services Germany – Indian cultural awareness training for Hitachi Vantara

An excellent teacher

"I liked the teacher's personal thorough knowledge about Russia and the Russians = it was not only theoretical knowledge. An excellent teacher."

Lone Dammand Jørgensen, Linguistic Project Coordinator – Russian culture workshop for Crisplant a/s

The focus was beyond do's and dont's

"The focus was beyond do's and dont's – not only did we learn WHAT the differences are but also WHY, which is really important to make it stick and to translate it into changed behaviours."

Lone Brandborg, Senior Director, Clinical Study Management – Chinese culture and global mindset training for Lundbeck

Very much recommended!

"The trainer was very enthusiastic and it was almost a physical perception of her passion towards the training. Very much recommended!"

Hugo Gomes, Project Manager, IT Security – Danish cultural awareness training for Danfoss

Just a great must-have training

" 'Do I know that they don´t know that I don´t know?' – revealed the fundamental difference between the approach of different cultures' different mindset. Just a great must-have training."

Tamás Kecskés, Planning Manager at Coloplast – Hungarian and Chinese cultural training for Coloplast

Very positive feedback from the participants

"AU Career International is an agency that aims to build bridges between international students and Danish companies. We offer our help and guidance in career related issued therefore, in November 2014 we organized the event entitled 'Your Future in Denmark', a seminar on Danish work culture.

We had the pleasure to cooperate with C3 Consulting, and benefit from Annette Dahl’s insightful presentation about structure and formality at the Danish work place. We were happy to receive a very positive feedback from the participants who ranked her presentation at the top of our scale stating that is was 'excellent'."

Ramona Melinda Visan, AU Career International, Aarhus University – Seminar on Danish work culture for international students

Highly recommend Annette and her team

"I highly recommend Annette and her team. I have known Annette more than 4 years and have been trained by her, her team and in connection to Leadership training in China where Annette also was part of the coaches / trainers.

I have with and from Annette gained both Chinese Language skills, a deep understanding of the Chinese culture and with that an eagerness to learn more... This extends to several colleagues of mine as well as my close family."

Jes Christensen – Various cultural training programmes

There were several real-life example and comparison between societies

"It was interactive, there were several real-life example and comparison between societies, which are being an essential part of such a training like this."

Dávid Szendrey, Validation Specialist, Validation, Hungarian – Danish cultural awareness training for Coloplast

Truly well done!

"I would like to say a big thank you for a rewarding course that provided me with many useful tools in my ongoing contact with the Chinese.

Not least I would like to thank you for your incredibly attentive way of teaching, where you made use of the course participant's case stories or input and – rather impressively – were able to remember our names and where each of us worked. And on top of that we had a really good time. That was truly well done!"

Kirsten Haugaard Christensen, RN, MaSciN, Lecturer, International Co-ordinator, Acting Master Co-ordinator, VIA University College – Open Chinese cultural awareness course

Really great training

"Really great training. I learned a lot regarding both China and Hungary. Good interaction between instructor and participants. The setup worked well."

Rune Speht Andersen, Planning Manager, S&OP – Hungarian and Chinese cultural awareness training for Coloplast

Able to point out the differences so well

"I liked that it was done by a person from India, who has lived and knows the Danish culture so well. He was able to point out the differences so well (and with lots of humour)."

Sonja Duch, Supplier Operation Specialist, Procurement – Indian cultural awareness workshop for Danfoss

I especially liked the history and background information of the cultural differences

"I especially liked the history and background information of the cultural differences HU and CN - giving me a better understanding of why different behaviors are to be seen and are to be expected - and learning to manage this upfront.

Firstly I thought that 2 whole days were too much … but after I’ve been through it - IT´s NOT. It´s sufficient time for the training. Very nice :-)"

Peter Müllejans, Machine Commissioning Project Manager, Department Commissioning – Hungarian and Chinese cultural awareness training for Coloplast

Relevant real life examples on the differences between DK and IN culture

"Vijay was a very good presenter and gave relevant real life examples on the differences between DK and IN culture. It was also good that he was aware of the cultural differences among our group and that not all of us were Danish meaning that the culture among us is also diverse."

Rikke Nielsen, SAP SD Superuser, CSL – Indian cultural awareness workshop for Novozymes

An essential insight into the Chinese way of thinking

"Chinese is a difficult language to learn, but the language training has provided a basic understanding of the language itself and a good base to build on. This has also made the start in China a lot easier, because I did not go into it as a complete beginner.

The cultural training has provided an essential insight into the Chinese way of thinking and has made the meeting with Chinese culture much more pain-free than it would have been otherwise. I do not even want to think about all the frustration that would have arisen had I not been on this course. It has really helped me to keep my sense of humour!"
