UK Expatriate Cultural Awareness Course

Our "Living and Working in the UK" course has been designed specifically for business personnel and expatriates that are working with the British or moving to the UK.

British Business Culture Training

Culture Shock
 is a term widely used yet little understood when discussing working abroad or expatriate relocation. We appreciate the difficulties people go through in settling down in a new country. How? Because our cross cultural trainers have been on both there and done that!

British Cultural Awareness Courses


All our courses are tailored to meet the demands of each and every client. They may be individuals coming here on assignments or longer term contracts, couples moving to the UK for a few years or families permanently relocating.

Our indispensable cultural awareness briefings aim to do one thing - minimise the negative impact of culture shock and ensure a person's / family's time in the UK is a fruitful and positive one.

Examples of areas we cover in our briefings are:

Culture and Orientation

  • History
  • Politics
  • Economy
  • Demographics
  • Taboos/Etiquettes/Manners
  • Customs

Doing Business in the UK

  • Entertaining
  • Space and time
  • Management structures
  • Hierachy
  • Meetings
  • Networking
  • Women
  • The workplace

Business Skills

  • Presentations
  • Conflict resolution
  • Building relationships


In addition we can provide more organisational and company culture focused cultural awareness courses to foreign managers and staff who may feel they could benefit in their new roles by understanding the complexities of the British workplace.

We provide guidance in cross-cultural awareness, management techniques, time management, interpersonal and communication skills. This takes on a more hands, one to one coaching approach and offers the client a more work orientated way of settling into a new company or office.

We have found Living & Working in the UK of great benefit for the following reasons:

  • Aids settling-in process and prevents culture shock
  • It motivates - everything seems less daunting and more exciting
  • It increases one’s confidence in public and at the work place
  • Interpersonal blunders are avoided
  • Allows the acquisition of tips, tools and strategies to living/working in the UK
