FAQs - Online Training Webinars

Here some quick answers to some commonly asked questions about the course and its delivery.

 

1. Who is the Cultural Competence course aimed at?

Anyone who works with people from different countries or cultures in a professional context.

As the course is more aimed at intermediate/experienced level learners, it is more suitable for those in leadership, management, supervisory or senior level positions who have to collaborate across cultures.

The course is not a good match for those that are new to the subject of cultural differences or culture at work. Such learners should undergone cultural awareness training instead.

 

2. How many people can we have on our webinar?

It’s up to you.

The more people you have on the webinar, the less engaging it be will be. The less you have, the more dialogue and discussion is possible.

We like to make our online training interactive, with plenthy of discussion, so for us 6-12 people is great. We have however presented to 300+ people!

 

3. How long are the courses?

Again, this is up to you and also depends on who you are training and why.

Obviously if you are serious about behavioral change through the training, then time is needed. We run courses that are anywhere between 1-8 hours or sometimes a series of webinars delivered over the course of weeks.

 

4. Can we record the webinar?

Absolutely.

You will receive an MP4 recording of the training once the webinar is complete. We are also able to edit the webinar and upload it onto an online learning platform, with quizzes, case studies and resources for future learners.
