The Challenge

Expanding your business globally

Global Chamber members run businesses that want to expand into new markets with new customers, develop existing relationships to accelerate business growth, as well as handle the key challenges which come with doing business across borders. Many members are used to working in North American and Western European influenced businesses, so to expand on a truly global scale, they need to have the insights, develop the skills and tap into the strategies to know how and when to adapt their communication approaches and behaviors to be more successful in connecting and developing business with customers, prospects and partners.

CQ Cultural Intelligence Training Outcomes for Global Chamber

Global Chamber®

“Victoria and Culture Cuppa make a potentially complicated topic easy for executives that are looking to do deals across cultures more effectively. We all know cultural differences matter, and too often leaders ‘wing it’, and worse yet leave their teams to make mistakes that sabotage best efforts.

Victoria’s personal style draws you in, and so I found myself fully engaged and learning new ideas, refreshing on essential cross-cultural principles and gaining tips to move forward right away. Highly recommended!”

“Working with Victoria through the CQ cultural intelligence program was eye-opening and thought-provoking! I was able to identify key areas of growth to develop my CQ cultural intelligence capabilities, allowing me to communicate and engage with our Global Members in a more meaningful way.

I have also applied my learning of CQ cultural intelligence to my role leading a global sales team in Finance. We can now easily plan and strategize how to win business in different locations around the world and build effective relationships. I would highly recommend Victoria to senior leadership teams, sales directors and entrepreneurs looking to grow their business globally!”
