Dear WISTA members, 

WISTA Norway has the pleasure of inviting you to a webinar focusing on Intercultural Communication on Thursday 26 November at 14.00 hrs.

Given the very international parameters many of us work within in the Shipping Industry, we are really pleased to have Agnes Bamford, experienced intercultural business consultant, hosting us through a talk on Intercultural Communication – both within multicultural teams and with international clients. Now that we are restricted from meeting in person, the communication aspect of our business dealings have become even more relevant as we communicate on digital platforms. This requires a heightened awareness of how we conduct ourselves, as our communication is stripped bare.

Please join us on Thursday 26 November from 14.00 – 15.00 to hear more!

The event will start with a 30 minute talk by Agnes followed by a 30 minutes for discussion and questions.

About the speaker:
