FAQs - Online Cultural Awareness Webinars 

Here some quick answers to some common questions we receive about our Iran cultural awareness webinars.


1. Who are the webinars for?

Literally anyone who works with Iranians in any capacity. They are ideal for organisations that already work in Iran or those looking to better understand the country prior to venturing in. Learners can be from any role or level. We work mainly with teams but also accomodate single learners and couples/families who may be moving to Iran.


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

It’s up to you. We have delivered to hundreds before but obviously this would be more of a presentation as opposed to an intimate coaching session. Ideally for anything interactive we ask for 4-12 people; but we are also flexible. Let us know what your learning objectives are and we can offer some options for you.


3. How long do they last?

Completely up to you. Once we know a bit more about what you need we can make some suggestions. Most webinars are around 2-3 hours but we also frequently do 1/2 day, full-day and 3-day webinars.


4. Can we have a recording?

Yes, we will send you an MP4 file of your training webinar for you to keep and use in the future!

We can even go one step further and incorporate the webinar file onto an eLearning course for you with additional content, quizzes and/or case studies.  Learn more about our Custom eLearning cultural training courses.


5. What can you teach us about Iranian culture?

Our experts can pretty much focus on whatever aspects of Iranian culture that you like, whether than be about business or society in general. As most of our clients are international organisations or companies, we tend to focus on aspects such as the business culture, etiquette, mindset and general security.


6. Who are your experts?

Our webinars are designed, developed and delivered by intercultural training professionals with a thorough personal and professional knowledge of Iran and its culture.


7. Do you cover any other countries?

Indeed, we can cover most countries in the world but our main areas of focus are:

Middle East
Saudi Arabia
South Korea
