Let's face the reality, the world is shrinking! Day by day countries become more and more near each other, and if you are not involved in international projects soon an opportunity will come to bring who YOU are in international enviroment, to get the power of your home culture and use it to enrich an multicultural global cocktail in an international project but...
There is always a "but" and in this case there are a lot of "ma", "ama" "แต่", "aber" ,"но" from each of your new project partners!

Operating between culture and leading intercultural projects, especially if your people are dislocated, requires willingness, openmindness and understanding of how the different cultures must be taken into consideration in communication, planning and actions.

Let's play together and raise the awareness on key points of global communication, understand how diverse the group of participants is and return home knowing something more on yourself and the others, to succesfully be a part of the tomorrow's international success!
