Intercultural Management – discussion event

With this topic, it was clear to us that our next event should use English as working language. Do you want to gather useful inputs on how to deal with people from other cultures, then be sure to register!

What can you expect?

We start with a speech given by Jonathan Irons, co-founder of United Heartbeat. This organization donates musical instruments to people who fled their countries and had to leave all their belongings behind. We will hear about how music connects people. OpenUNI is happy to donate 10% of the ticket sales to this local charity.

We continue with the keynote speech held by Niclas Bastian. He is the manager of an international team at Henkel and in his years of working in this setup, he has made good and bad experiences with it. He will share his personal learnings with you.

After a short break, we enter the interactive main part. We use the method called “world café” which lets participants discuss in small groups and enables the exchange of many opinions by switching groups. The coffeehouse atmosphere is the ideal setting for these conversations.

Towards the end, we allow enough time for the participants to reflect on the various discussed aspects and to define their individual learnings, supported by a conclusion sheet.

And after the official part has ended, the participants are welcome to stay for further discussions and networking – come as strangers, leave as friends.
