Intercultural relationships made easy
Immediately through the acquisition of intercultural competence in the intercultural seminar

My expertise is based on many years of experience and scientifically sound knowledge as well as on constant cooperation with companies.

I conduct intercultural field research. My expertise is based on stays of several months in numerous countries with different cultures, so far in 17 different countries on five continents. This enables me to deal intensively with the respective cultural standards, business principles and forms of communication. This has resulted in a deep understanding of intercultural encounters and cooperation. This enables me to use them, among other things, in my offer for you with regard to intercultural relationships. My intercultural seminar is based on research in psychology, cross-cultural psychology, research and empirical knowledge.

As a graduate psychologist, I have been able to gain extensive experience in companies and organizations in more than 20 years. The size of the companies ranges from large industrial companies to medium-sized companies and non-profit companies.

As a psychologist, with experience as a university lecturer, manager, trainer, mediator, moderator and coach, as well as with many years of experience in international relations, I offer you special skills.

    How is an intercultural seminar different to a course workshop and conference?

    While an intercultural seminar is a one-time event that can last several days, depending on the topic and intensity throughout, the transfer of knowledge takes place in intercultural courses in several pedagogical and didactic steps over a longer period of time. It is almost like a step-by-step training.

    One intercultural workshop is most similar to the intercultural seminar. Many elements overlap, which is why the terms are often confused. There is a clear distinctive feature: the new knowledge is mainly intercultural acquired together during a moderated workshop. This means that theory takes a back seat to practice in group work. In order to make this possible, care is taken to ensure that the group of participants in intercultural workshops is even smaller than in the intercultural seminar.

    An intercultural conference – also known as a congress, symposium or conference – when people who work in the same subject area come together to exchange ideas and maintain contacts. Knowledge is imparted through lectures, presentations, workshops and panel discussions.

    The same pattern can be found in the intercultural seminar in adult education. At this unique further training event, the participants in a small group are not only taught theory – as in a lecture – but are directly involved. Through questions, teamwork, practical case studies, role plays and discussions, you will actively participate in acquiring the new intercultural skills for practical use. This is very important, especially in a professional context. In the seminar topic -intercultural- the personal experiences in connection with the results make a much better impression than notes from informative lectures. Each individual benefits in the long term from the exchange with me as the seminar leader and the other participants.

    I will actively involve you as a seminar participant.
