This workshop will help you develop an understanding of how to effectively communicate and build relationships with people from other cultures. You will identify potential barriers to successful intercultural communication and understand how an awareness of our own and other cultures can influence attitudes and behaviour.
There will be a range of material and practical activities included in the workshop to simulate communication problems and we will discuss strategies to deal with them.
The aim is for participants to become better prepared for future intercultural interactions.
