We are once again pleased to be joined by Agnes Bamford, PhD Research Scholar at the Department of Professional and Intercultural Communication at the Norwegian School of Economics (NHH) and Annett Åbø, President at The Norwegian-British Chamber of Commerce for part three and final session of this webinar series.
This is highly relevant for anyone who works or aims at working with both Norway and UK.
Testimonial after part one of the webinar series:
“After five years working for a Norwegian business here in the UK maybe this session came a little late for me! However, much of the content rang true and the presentations provided some very useful insight into many of the cultural differences I’d already noticed, particularly in a work environment.”
– Romy Rawlings, Commercial Director at Vestre
- Challenges and strategies for teams and leadership.
- Discover ways of working more efficiently as a team member or leader.
The course will cover cultural nuances in leadership and management approaches, how to navigate differences in workplace behaviours, including communication and Norwegian and British cultural preferences and perceptions
The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.
