Cultural Competence is vitally important in business, enhancing our ability to interact with people of different backgrounds, ethnicities, and beliefs. As Europe’s melting pot for diverse talent, London's culture savvy may be seen as a key competitive advantage.
However, Cultural Competence is a challenging skill. Dealing with cultures that have developed over thousands of years takes time and sensitivity, but when managed effectively, the results can be game-changing – for individuals, teams, and business.
