"I just wanted to share with you that I've recently run follow up sessions at our Swedish office and I'm really pleased to say that the Babel training sessions have had a really positive impact on people there. Brilliant to see that this really made a difference."

Intercultural Awareness Programme

Cross Cultural Training

"For a day course it was perfect but it has left me wanting to learn more which is always a good thing!"

Cultural Awareness

Knight Frank

"Although I have had cultural training in the past, this was far more useful to me. It was interactive and helped me to improve my cultural awareness."

Working Across Cultures

Experian - Bulgaria

"I enjoyed learning how to deal with situations emerging from cultural differences within the USA (dialects, accents). Some really helpful insight into the American mind-set, especially business life. Also, the ability to phrase things in a way that US clients understand. Now I understand that there are some things here in the EU that US citizens never use so cannot understand."

American Cultural Training


"Engaging Trainer. Clear understanding / insight into the subject, seemed genuinely interested in what we wanted to get from the course/ how it applied to our roles."

Working Effectively with India

Royal Society of Chemistry - Cambridge

"An excellent presenter - very happy to address work specific related questions and deviate from planned materials when it was helpful."

Working Effectively with Japan

Cambridge Consultants

"The trainer gave me straight answers to my questions and tips on how to deal with my problematic situation in the future."

Working Across Cultures

VMWare - Bulgaria

“I’ve gained a better understanding to cultural differences. I definitely suggest colleagues go on this to learn that something may be classed as ‘rude’ but it’s merely a misunderstanding.”

Cultural Diversity & Inclusion

St George

"The course improved my level of confidence to deal with situations and I now feel I have a better understanding of the Chinese and Russian cultures."

Developing World-Class Customer Service

Customer Service Academy, Berkeley Group

"The trainer made us very comfortable, which created good questions and discussions."

High Performance Multi-Cultural Teams

BNP Paribas Securities Services - Glasgow

“I often proof-read our International Magazine for grammar/ typos. Now I will also consider the Global English v Native English impact in the future.”

Exploring How We Work

Computacenter - Hatfield

"We really enjoyed the workshop. To be honest I was a little bit sceptical beforehand but any thoughts like that were very quickly banished, and certain subjects were discussed that I hadn’t even thought about. We both got a lot out of the day and would highly recommend to everyone."
