21 November 2019 18:30 - 21:30 GOOOD - 75002 Paris

For the first workshop of our PWN International Hub programme we are delighted to welcome Sylvie Tournier, professional consultant and seasoned expert on fostering cross-cultural collaboration and cultural agility. We will dive you into a unique and playful learning experience. You will share and reflect with peers and experts on best practices to deal with cross-cultural teams. If you are working in an international context come and join us on Thursday November 21st.

The workshop has been conceived and jointly organized by PWN Paris International Hub and the Professional Development’ programmes and thanks to the support of its VPs Maria-Laetitia Gourdin and Romaine Johnstone.

After the International Hub kick-off, held on the 2nd of October, it is now time to go deeper into the programme with this first “experiential learning workshop” that will enrich further your insights and knowledge on intercultural management and cross-culture cooperation. Through it you will investigate the real challenges of collaborating across cultures. You will learn, with other participants, playing as a team, how to overcome them and also how to improve collaboration with partners and teams located at a distance. 

You will end up the workshop with best practices established with peers and a few practical tips from the facilitator on how to best work with people from different styles and cultures especially at a distance.

We will conclude with a networking cocktail, rich of opportunities to exchange and to connect.

Please note that this event will be held in English.

Join us for an evening of insights, knowledge, and networking
