Intercultural Training: Abu Dhabi | UAE


Jewel of Abu Dhabi: Sheikh Zayed Mosque
In my work as an intercultural trainer for managers and executives, I come across a wide range of opinions about the developments in the Arabian Gulf states, and especially Dubai. 
While some people are sceptical about the sustainability of the projects, most people appreciate the efforts and successes of the last four decades, in which the Emirates turned from small fishing communities into global business and holiday hubs: "from rags to riches", as is one of the credos of Abu Dhabi

Far away from the glittering skyscrapers, the capital of the United Arab Emirates has realised a truly fascinating and mesmerising building: the Sheikh Zayed Mosque, named after the late founder of the UAE. 
The building is open to the public (during non-prayer times) and I had the pleasure of visiting this architectonic marble. Here are some impressions:

And should you come to Abu Dhabi on a business basis, make sure to have an adequate preparation for the intercultural peculiarities and specifics of the Emirate as well as its multitude of people and nationalities – I would be happy to support you!
