APSMA HK: Training with a Global Mindset

  • 26 October 2016
  • 18:30 - 20:00 (CST)
  • EY, 22/F, CITIC Tower 1 Tim Mei Avenue Central, Hong Kong

Have you ever facilitated a workshop where most of the participants were quiet? Or perhaps too vocal and interrupting your flow? Everyone learns differently, which makes developmental and other learning experiences all the more challenging to design and deliver. Our workplace is also ever more global, which adds to the complexity we must navigate to effectively onboard new hires, elevate high potentials to meet their goals, and develop managers and leaders to do their best work.

How often do you consider the cultural underpinnings of learning as you facilitate, design or manage training? Join us to explore a variety of practical strategies to ensure that training, whether deployed globally or locally, meets the expectations of your participants.

In this interactive workshop, Sean Dubberke and Adrian Overholser of RW3 CultureWizard will share how to anticipate and adjust to many of the challenges you may encounter as you conduct training across cultures and around the world, including how to:

  • Effectively present yourself and your content
  • Engage learners from egalitarian and hierarchical cultures
  • Teach people with diverse communication styles
  • Engage people with individualistic and collaborative learning styles

Who Should Attend:

  • Anyone who facilitates, designs or manages training and workshops
  • HR Professionals in Learning & Development, Leadership Development, Diversity & Inclusion, Talent Management and beyond 
Date: Wednesday, 26 October 2016 
Time: 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm
(1 hour workshop followed by light snacks and drinks to further network with your peers from other organisations) 

EY, 22/F, CITIC Tower 1 Tim Mei Avenue, Central, Hong Kong

Price: Free of charge
