Richard D LewisAccording to The Economist, 90% of CEOs believe that understanding and leveraging culture would increase revenue and market share. But only around 30% do anything about it. Why? Because they are not sure what to do or how to drive and measure it. Fundamentally, most leaders aren’t trained how to leverage culture for competitive advantage. Today’s leading global companies and leaders need know how to create high performing multicultural teams that are highly innovative – and they need to do this quickly and effectively. Join us and learn from Richard D. Lewis, world-renowned author of many books on culture including “When Cultures Collide” and “When Teams Collide” about the advances he has brought to this area though his globally respected Lewis Model. Also hear from Craig Martin and David Howells from Martin Global Leaders who apply Richard Lewis’ work on national culture with others tools on organizational culture and leadership drives to expedite the transitions of senior global executives into their new roles.

7329247By both necessity and design, teams are becoming increasingly multicultural, yet so often they at some stage run into significant difficulties around communication, understanding and interpretation of how best to work together effectively. Providing measurable and actionable steps to both recognize and deal with these issues is a high priority for CEOs and HR in most organizations working internationally and even for many locally. Please join Richard Lewis, internationally acclaimed author of many books on culture including “When Teams Collide” and “Fish can’t see water”, to hear about the advances he has brought to this area though his globally respected Lewis Model. Also hear from Craig Martin and David Howells from Martin Global Leaders who apply Richard Lewis’ work on national culture with others tools on organizational culture and leadership drives to expedite the transitions of senior global executives into their new roles.

Richard D LewisRichard D. Lewis, one of Britain’s foremost linguists; Founder Richard Lewis Communications; Founder Berlitz schools in East Asia, Portugal and Finland; personal tutor to Japanese Imperial family, author of When Cultures Collide, When Teams Collide, and Fish Can’t See Water; Knight Commander of the Order of the Lion of Finland. Cultural differences are frequently the source of misunderstandings between people, countries and businesses. The impact of cultural predispositions in perceptions of nationhood and “self” have far reaching implications for organizations working across the globe. Understanding these factors and predicting how differing cultures will interact in terms of communication, cooperation and decision-making is a source of geopolitical advantage, particularly in today’s interconnected and inflammable world.
