Building Inter-Cultural Intelligence for Global Leadership Excellence

Updated: Mar 26



Dubai has seen tens of millions of expatriates pass through its business community in the past few decades. The UK, India, US, China, Bangladesh, Nigeria, South Africa, and Argentina are just a few of the more than 200 nationalities represented here. What a perfect place to have an Inter-Cultural Intelligence Accreditation Workshop!


This workshop was hosted by the traditional Al Manzil Hotel from 18 to 22 August, 2013. This hotel is in the heart of Dubai and sits across from the tallest skyscraper and largest mall in the world, and was a perfect place to observe intercultural interactions at their finest.


Inter-Cultural Intelligence (ICI) is a growing need throughout the world, with the forces of globalization and technological advancement, the world is becoming smaller, bringing every nationality, ethnicity, organization, and their various cultures together. ICI introduces a new attitude and way of life, creating a neutral cultural space to effectively conduct business and be successful.


The accreditation is a 5 day long program and accredits participants to present levels one and two of the Inter-Cultural Intelligence material. After levels one and two have been presented to 10 or more people, an accredited professional can obtain ICI certification and deliver a wider variety of ICI products.
