They say about TICL

“Federica delivered a great intercultural course which was really valuable in helping me to understand the culture and work environment in Sweden at the start of my first overseas work assignment.
By sharing her personal and professional experiences, Federica created an environment where we could fully explore the topics.
The course was well researched and tailored to my specific questions. Federica was able to run an interactive, engaging series of sessions online to ensure the training was a success despite the current travel restrictions.”

Working in a multi-cultural environment with a remote team in Istanbul and Shenzhen and five nationalities in the team, I was looking for someone who could help us understand the power of multi-culture. […] Federica immediately understood my need and created a tailor-made 1-day workshop. She used interactive tools and it took only a couple of minutes to start up discussions, sharing experiences and opinions within the Team. […]
