Cross Cultural Training

Your assignment in Spain may be for one year or ten – however long it is, you you will settle in more quickly and feel more at home,  if you know something about the country, its history, geography and people.


Taking part in Madrid Relocation’s Cross Cultural Training Programme is an essential part of this learning process and an effective way to invest in your future in your new home. Lack of cross cultural awareness can have a negative impact at many different levels, both at work and at home, from a simple misunderstanding to more serious consequences arising from badly managed expectation. 


The programme can be tailored to your individual requirements – the sessions can be business or family oriented – or both. It can be at the office or at home and will usually last for one or two days depending on your needs and wishes.
