Cultural differences can be a source of embarrassment, misunderstanding or taking offence, but they can also be a source of enjoyment and creativity. The aim of this workshop is to help participants reduce the likelihood of these negatives happening by showing how to become more aware of other cultures, perceptions, and behavioral norms in order to create a rapport quickly.
This half-day workshop is designed to give an understanding and appreciation of the issues of working with different cultures from our own, with special focus on the Middle East. It will help you understand and respect differences and move beyond them to achieve the desired goals. Cultural differences should never prevent you from meeting your goals or getting the job done! Understanding cultural differences will help you to be more creative in what you want to achieve.
This course will address vital areas such as the importance of cultural awareness, etiquette, communication, relationship building and traditions, as well as more complex topics such as religion, cross cultural attitudes, and language.
We’re looking for 3 organisations to trial our ” Cultural Diversity Training”. This course can be delivered at your own pace, in your own time… for FREE. All we ask is your honest feedback, and your review of the course.

This report presents the findings of the Social Enterprise Census 2017, the definitive biennial account of social enterprise activity in Scotland.
The Social Enterprise Census 2017 is a collaborative effort to track the changing scale, characteristics and contribution of Scotland’s social enterprise sector every two years over the course of the next decade. It builds on the 2015 baseline study, and forms part of the Scottish Government’s long-term commitment to realising the full potential of the sector.
By ‘social enterprise’ the study refers to organisations that are trading for the common good – addressing social needs, strengthening communities, improving people’s life chances, and protecting the environment. They organisations analysed as part of the study operate in a way consistent with the Voluntary Code of Practice for Social Enterprise in Scotland .
The Social Enterprise Census is the largest and most comprehensive of its kind anywhere in the world and has included: the screening of over 20,000 organisations against the agreed definitional criteria; extraction and analysis of financial data from the public accounts of 4,439 social enterprises; and a representative survey of the population of social enterprises in Scotland, which yielded 1,351 responses.
