Time & Location

About The Event
Are you trying to influence in a new cultural context? You may be working with a team in a different country, or you have moved to a different country yourself and are now working in this new context. Or perhaps you haven’t moved at all, but each sub-group within your company has a slightly different culture.
Storytelling is the most powerful tool for influence. Yet storytelling changes from culture to culture. In this webinar, we will explore how the cultural context shifts our storytelling. Our panelists come from Asia, South America, and Europe. They have worked cross-culturally in America and South Asia. In this session, they’ll share their experience of unexpected culture shocks, how they adapted, what to expect while adapting, and how to thrive as a powerful storyteller in more than one culture.
