Africa is full of opportunities and full of challenges: knowing how to navigate multinational settings in and from Africa is a pre-requisite for success. We will use Hofstede’s 6D model to shed light on professional differences between this and other continents and we will apply it to the differences among African countries on this vast land.

SUCCESSFUL CROSS BORDER M&A – DEVELOPING INTERCULTURAL COMPETENCE –   “How to manage the Culture factor”. Research is showing that unrecognized cultural issues are getting in the way of fast and effective acquisitions and integration, in the words of Peter Drucker “Culture eats strategy for breakfast”.   Bridging cultural gaps is critical to the sourcing, courting, due diligence, negotiation and eventual acquisition integration process and if done correctly will lead to a transaction to which more employees are more committed and hence result in a richer business plan.

Itim helped me to prepare chairing an important meeting. It really was fascinating to see many of the national characteristics manifesting themselves in Budapest. The course made a big difference to what I was able to achieve and I certainly noticed a number of potential pitfalls that I would otherwise have walked straight into. The important thing was that I could now recognise them and act accordingly.

I still consider your seminar one of the best ones ever I participated in. You gave excellent insight on how your home and company culture influence your leadership style and how this results in a match between your-self and the company, or a mismatch.
