A Passion for Culture

As experts in cross-cultural communication, we love what we do.

We love people, we love difference, we love languages, we love our world!

That's why we are so passionate about cultural understanding.

We want to share that love and that's why we publish our award-winning culture guides for all, for free, for everyone.



Warning! Culture is Not Static!

It is important to bear in mind that these guides act as basic and general introductions only. They are not in any way definitive.

We do not intend to stereotype, pigeon-hole or try to quantify any culture or people. Each society, country and culture will have numerous nuances that would make it irresponsible to suggest a uniform approach to understanding any country's social/business culture or etiquette.

One also has to take into account the personal cultures of individuals, whether they be religious, regional, gender, corporate or otherwise.

However, loose guidelines can assist in bettering understanding and avoiding offence.


Our guides are free to access and to read, however, if you wish to use them in any other way, such as to re-publish or quote them, then please contact us.
