Understanding how
to overcome cultural differences.


Every business we work with is different and unique and usually multinational which brings great and exciting opportunities for that business. Organisations that achieve competitive advantage are those that have a good understanding of how to overcome cultural differences.

We live in a world where diverse communities live alongside each other and technology allows us to trade internationally with ease.  Iwona Lebiedowicz Consultancy works closely with companies across the UK helping them to gain a better understanding of cultural awareness and effective engagement when dealing with clients, associates and their diverse workforce.

  • Training for HR Professionals

    Having little understanding of the influence of cross cultural differences in areas such as management, human resources, advertising or negotiations can eventually lead to cultural faux pas that can have damaging consequences. It is very important for today’s business to understand the impact of cross cultural differences on business, trade and internal company organisation. The success or failure of a company, venture, merger or acquisition is essentially in the hands of people. If these people are not cross culturally aware, then misunderstandings and also breakdowns in communication can occur.
