“Culture makes people understand each other better. And if they understand each other better in their soul, it is easier to overcome the economic and political barriers.” Paulo Coelho
Understanding cultural differences improves the way people conduct business with countries of different culture and business conduct. The Institute of Australia Middle East Business & Education IAMBE offers Arab and Islamic cultural awareness seminars/workshops to Australian delegates visiting the Middle East or other Muslim countries.
A Western senior executive has got his business visa cancelled in a Middle Eastern country because of the way he greeted a lady from the royal family. He simply applied his culture dealing with royalties, but it was totally inappropriate in a conservative Muslim culture.
IAMBE customize its workshops according to the requirements of its clients. The workshops will give you the history of that culture, general rules you should follow to maintain respect to others and real-life scenarios to make your journey smooth and successful.
The cultural awareness workshops are designed and delivered by professional consultants who have lived and experienced both cultures and know where things might go wrong. IAMBE has provided cultural awareness workshops to diplomatic, humanitarian, academic and business delegates visiting the Middle East and other Muslim countries.
