Working in a multi-cultural environment – experiences of working across the Middle East, Asia and Europe

The FEAS has members from some of the world’s most politically sensitive countries, with many cultural differences.  From simple matters such as how meetings are conducted, through to the need for multi-channel communications from telegrams to social media, there are constant challenges to overcome.   The Federation must demonstrate fairness and equality in its dealings with members; all member countries must be represented and their views considered. Learn from the experiences and examples of how potential problems have been overcome.
