An intercultural trainer consults and trains their client or target group on the different cultural styles and behavior between different countries and how to handle various cross cultural situations based upon language, gender, business, politics, body language, etc. A cross cultural trainer helps in bridging the cultural divide between various nations or communities. In the case of Relocation-International we help settle better and prepare expatriate families from abroad who have been assigned to work in South Africa. Studies have shown that such preparation increases the success rate of the expatriate assignment hugely saving costs, time and effort both for the family and the company involved.
