Zakendoen tussen Nederlanders en Belgen (online event)

Een webinar voor Belgen en Nederlanders die goed voorbereid willen zijn zowel online als offline.
“We spreken dezelfde taal, maar ondernemen op een andere manier”. Dat zegt Nederbelg Eric Lippens.
Hoe realiseer je meer omzet over de grens?
Door in dit webinar kennis op te doen over de cultuurverschillen en hoe je daarmee om moet gaan, maar ook door met elkaar in gesprek te gaan om de communicatieprocessen te leren kennen die in Nederland en België gebruikt worden.
Dit event wordt mede mogelijk gemaakt door Interreg.

The intercultural training will explore these differences as well as help participants navigate around different cultural styles in order to facilitate harmonious interaction and smoother productivity.
