PGG gives you direct access to a team of skilled individuals who create targeted business solutions based on your cultural requirements. All our presenters and subject matter experts have worked internationally as project managers, engineers, sales and customer support managers and have experienced challenges and benefits of working with and within other cultures.

This enables People Going Global to empathize with your staff and recommend solutions to real world situations in a highly interactive training environment that covers the practical and theoretical concepts of cross cultural training.

Our training modules provide valuable tools that can be adapted to the unknown challenges ahead in the field or back in the office when managing a team thousands of miles away or in the next cubicle.

Here are just a few examples of the questions that we can specifically address in our programs:

bulletWhy did the partner in Japan not get back to us immediately?
bulletHow does the German thinking process differ from the American and why.
bulletWhat to expect when presenting your sales pitch to a French businessman, and how to prepare
bulletHow to get results with an Indian offshore team using culturally aware communication skills.

People Going Global focuses on providing a toolkit of proven communication methods from a business perspective. We have provided thousands of hours of training on a wide variety of cultures including China, Japan, India, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, Australia and the USA, as well as global awareness overviews.

- Examples of Cross Cultural Training Programs

We successfully use our "Dual Perspective" model to demonstrate similarities and surprising differences between cultures. Understanding one's native cultural conditioning is just as important as learning about the cultural characteristics of the other. The Dual Perspective intercultural training approach enables the audience to:
  • raise awareness of our own value system / motivation and use it as a reference point
  • learn about other world business cultures through the dual perspective approach
  • develop and practice strategies from a contrast-and-compare point of view to address effective communication in a multicultural workplace
