Why Arab Culture?
The UK has recently taken massive steps to improve its relationship with the Arab World, signalling to businesses and organisations the Arab market will only become more valuable. Already Arab tourists are among the highest spenders in London’s popular luxury shopping districts, and easing visa restrictions will increase the number of yearly tourists. In addition, negotiations for a free trade agreement are currently underway.
Businesses and brands that are prepared for working with Arab consumers and partners stand to benefit greatly from this progress.
However, many falsely believe they do not need to adjust their strategy to work with Arabs or in the Arab World and harmful stereotypes still circulate in the media. This could damage relationships beyond prepare and severely harm your business.
The course content is entirely customised to what will be the most beneficial to you and your specific goals. Content may include:
A discussion of stereotypes and their implications
Etiquette and relationships
Beliefs and values
History and politics
Business culture and attitudes
