Cross cultural skills and competence are increasingly viewed as indispensable by multinational companies, governments, charities and any organisation operating in today’s global marketplace. As multinational companies grow increasingly large and complex, the ethical dilemmas which arise from conducting business across a diverse range of cultures can create a minefield of challenges for the international business manager.

Avoiding cultural mistakes whilst demonstrating respect and understanding for another culture can pay dividends to those who manage the balancing act and will pave the way to successful interpersonal relationships. With the introduction of new bribery and corruption laws in the past two years which vary among countries, it can be a daunting task for managers to respect a country’s ethical code whilst remaining true to their own. This conference will help companies to develop a culturally sensitive and legally robust approach to doing business overseas whilst providing the opportunity to discuss the many common misconceptions and pitfalls which have been thrown up since The UK Bribery Act came into effect in 2011.

By attending this conference, delegates will gain a fuller understanding of how to identify & resolve cross-cultural differences which may impact their work or business dealings. Delegates will be able to assess whether their own internal anti-bribery and corruption policies are sufficiently robust to stand up against the law and where the ethical conflicts within their own organisations exist.
