Feedback from the participants:
"I have been to Norway twice before but I have never attended this type of training describing all about the Norwegian and the company culture. This training will really help us coming more forward and adapt the Norwegian culture with ease. I would recommend this cultural training to all non-Norwegians visiting Norway!"

"I would like to thank you for the interesting presentation you held for us. I have studied Nordic languages, literature and ethnology for almost 6 years, but I have never before got such a good insight into the Norwegian culture and manners as I did during your presentation!"
Mathias Christmann, Germany

"I had an actual epiphany yesterday!! I wanted to jump up and down during the course and call out «Halleluja!!». Thank you very much!
From my own jumbled views on the Norwegian workplace philosophy, I experienced a leap of understanding that made total sense of the last six years of frustration and disbelief. I feel like a religious convert. What a relief!! It’s true: The Norwegian education and business psychology IS DIFFERENT. The Norwegian way, though looking suspiciously similar to the UK business place, is driven by a set of unspoken rules that are practically and confusingly the opposite!!
The Norwegian schooling and working life were explained in a comprehensive new way. I hadn’t realized those in such a concrete manner before. Also how as a foreigner with a pre-made set of rules there are some simple practical things to do that will help enormously. I got more tips on expected behavior. The depth of understanding I now have has already in just a few hours eased an awful lot of pent up frustration from my soul !
It may sound obvious, but believe me, having someone from the inside explain this in such an in depth, yet easily relatable manner is worth gold! To make it very clear: I would recommend all non-Norwegians working in Norway to attend this course.”

"It was very useful - I work in a project with Ukraine (the first one in the company, and we everything was very new to us) and we have made many mistakes…. We have wondered about and felt the issues you talked about yesterday. Excellent! "

"This type of training should be mandatory before establishing any contact with India to avoid critical errors and misunderstandings from the start!"
