Cross Cultural shock: main challenges for Expats

  • September 4, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Peter Nielsen will be talking about social as well as business challenges relating to settling in Switzerland, including Swiss core cultural values which drives the local behavior and which may give you a better insight into this particular cultural environment.

Peter will also talk us through a typical expatriate adjustment phase and will give advice on how to overcome culture shock and initial adjustment and thrive in Switzerland.

Please bring your own Swiss experiences to share and to perhaps get explained from a different cultural view.

    It's by coincidence that I will be in Zurich tomorrow as I usually live in Bern. I'm interested in this event especially now, I'll tell you why tomorrow!
