Some further inforformations for the INTERCULTURAL DIFFERENCES EVENT SERIES:

I choose a more practical and "lively" approach - namely exchanging real experiences, situations and feelings and not only philosophizing theories (e.g. the dimensions of Hofstede) or just listening to a speech where others "explain the world" to us.

After a short introduction we will have a familiar and confidential atmosphere in our group and discuss topics like:

- What are your most impressive and / or weird experiences - at the work place and / or the general life style?
- What are significant intercultural differences between your culture(s) and the chosen country / culture? How do you and others deal with it?
- How do other internations members see these differences from their own experience? Do they share your opinion? What do you have in common with other cultures, looking to Germany?
- Where do you see obstacles or opportunities to make business (e.g. as an entrepreneur or CEO, supervisor and / or employee) and / or to work in Germany, compared to other countries?
- Are there any recommendations or special "insider tipps" for others?
- How can we help each other to get along in the business world?
- Which special questions do you have to the internations members which you do not find in books and what you always wanted to know, never dared to ask or never got an answer?

I plan to build up a series "going" through the whole world, also e.g. Asian culture, Arab culture, African Culture, Eastern and Southern Europe, U.S,, UK, India, Latin America and so on.

The events are always moderated by my and other consuls and / or another member. After the event we also have time to come down to regular business networking.
