“How many a diplomatic crisis could have been avoided? How many broken business deals and fractured relationships could have been saved with a little cultural intelligence?” – Rana Nejem
Have you ever made a culturally insensitive faux-pas in the Arab region? Are you anxious about offending? Or do you just want to know a bit more about Arab culture?
This three course lunch will feature a talk from Rana Nejem
, a social and cultural intelligence coach whose expertise in international communications, protocol and PR has seen her working as a journalist for CNN, handling the International Media Department for the late King Hussein of Jordan, and as Director of Communications and PR for the British Embassy in Amman for 18 years. She has recently channeled this expertise into a comprehensive guide on the subject, When in the Arab World: An Insider’s Guide to Living and Working with Arab Culture
. Be prepared for enlightening anecdotes and to leave both well-fed and well-informed.
