The Dutch: a crash course on Dutch culture & (business) communication
Arriving in the Netherlands as an expat may initially feel overwhelming. Aside from being on unfamiliar grounds, there is a new language, culture and society to consider. Our one-day workshop therefore offers a crash course on Dutch culture & communication for English-speaking expats and internationals coming to work in the Netherlands. It will also highlight and delve into the differences as well as similarities between the Dutch and the English-speaking community.
The workshop will be given by one of our senior language trainers who arrived in the Netherlands 20+ years ago as an expat herself, and is experienced in cross-cultural communication in the workplace.
English-speaking expats that would like to get a head start when it comes to getting to know the Dutch culture.
Programme, the workshop will touch on the following topics:
- Education & kids
- Style & tone
- Habits & traditions
- Cross-cultural misconceptions & changes
- Food & hospitality
