Nita Korsten – Intercultural Business Professional 

Many of you may have taken courses on cross-cultural theories. Great stuff, but what does it actually mean to study or work in a diverse team? What seemed so exciting at first can turn out to be pretty aggravating. In this workshop we will cover:

  • What you can do to limit culture shock;
  • Why getting out of your Comfort Zone is actually a great idea!
