Intercultural Communication Services

Intercultural Professionals is the training and consultancy branch of the KIT Royal Tropical Institute. Our approach to cultural awareness focuses on how you can connect and build strong relationships in an intercultural context. At the individual level, we believe that self-awareness is essential to creating intercultural success.

Participants in our programmes become aware of their individual preferences and habits and explore what reactions these may elicit from others. Our trainers and experts help candidates to assess and analyse these situations in context. The programmes offer ample opportunity to discover new skills and define effective individual strategies. This allows individuals working successfully with culturally diverse teams, projects, or international partners.
