Communicating globally!

  • Gorrissen Federspiel 2 Axeltorv København V, 1609 Denmark (map)

How do you handle communicating with an office abroad or employees from other cultures in Denmark? What tools should you use when commuting to a vessel globally? Join this meeting and get some hands-on advice from an expert and engage in the debate inspired by cases from three different angles of the maritime sector. 

Furthermore, we will discuss typical pitfalls in managerial communication to other cultures and the dangers of assuming Danish values as a common frame of reference.


  • Communicational positioning – what is it and how do we use it in Denmark and what pitfalls does it entail when communicating outside Danish borders.

  • High-Low-Context-Culture. What does it mean and why is it very important to be aware of in connection with intercultural communication?
