Workshop Communicating with the Dutch at Amsterdam Bright City

November 18th 2011       13:00 – 17:00 pm

For expats/global workers. Learn more about Dutch cultural values, and how they influence communication.

The focus of this masterclass is to provide you insights in the background of Dutch cultural habits and values. We will give you information to help you understand these habits and values better. Special attention is being given to themes like equality and hierarchy in the Netherlands, business mentality, communication with Dutch colleagues and managers. We will also discuss on:
´How do Dutch people perceive foreigners?´ ´What do foreigners think of Dutch people?´ ´How is Dutch social life organized?`
´Planning and organizing Dutch life´

You will share your personal experiences on these and other themes in small groups and by role-playing under guidance of the trainers. We start with your own experiences with Dutch culture and Dutch people. We will see how you can manage typical ´Dutch situations´. Then we will give you background information about Dutch life and Dutch culture. And we hope to help you to discover your personal style in dealing with Dutch life and Dutch people. As a non-Dutch you will have more insight in Dutch culture. So, non-Dutch and Dutch can meet each other in all their diversity and hopefully will understand each other better as employees and inhabitants of the Zuidas and Amsterdam.                  Read more
