Practical knowledge: Our trainers have lived and worked in the respective target countries for several years. We thus exclusively offer experts who have gained their experience from practice.


On top of that, most of them were even born and raised in the respective target country.


Exact fit: Our trainings are individually adjusted to your situation and needs.


Interactivity: Our trainings offer a vast mixture of methods [role-plays, exercises, simulations, case studies, videos, etc.].

This way the imparted knowledge will be easier to remember. It also provides the right amount of learning fun.


Family Affairs: For us it is obvious that the entire family should be included in our cross-cultural preparation measures.


Quality: The average grade of our trainings last year was 1.31 [1.0 = very good | 6.0 = very bad].


An outstanding training still doesn’t have to be expensive. We’re very proud of our cost-benefit ratio.


Support during the assignment: We’ll gladly support your employees during their entire stay abroad.


For this purpose, we’ve developed various additional offerings that allow for particularly sustainable support.

We are looking forward to you!
