International Business

Jun 23, 2020GENERAL, TERP BUSINESS

Last May, Sheila Harkatz, founder of Mujeres en Carrera, a Latin American Edtech initiative that promotes business and financial inclusion of girls and women, invited me to present a webinar about multicultural communication and doing business internationally.

It was a great opportunity to share my experiences and lessons learned in my work as a diplomatic interpreter about how different cultures interact and communicate.

I decided to focus on the following areas:

  • Time management
  • The physical dimension
  • Approach to information
  • Using a lingua franca
  • Working with interpreters

Above is the recording of the webinar with special focus on the interactions between Latin America and the UK. You are more than welcome to watch it!

Its free-spirited nature does not mean the English language and its usage have no rules or unspoken norms of accepted “behaviour” or many nuances to contend with.

Things are actually more complex than one would think.
