Language training for the Far East; Crown Worldwide
30 Jul 2013
Crown Worldwide AB provides strategic assignment management services and complete relocations for multinational companies and government organisations. With offices in more than 265 locations, Crown naturally has a global perspective.
Avison is proud to be Crown’s local partner in Sweden for language and cultural training towards Crown’s end clients.
The latest project involves tailored courses in introductory Chinese (Mandarin) and Chinese business/social culture for Stora Enso. It is a challenge for these professional people uprooting and starting afresh in a new country. A far-away land that is very different from Sweden. And an economy and society that are experiencing change at an incredible rate. We have provided the same service for their clients moving to India. The language this time was Hindi.
Avison provides these people with some of the basics to start a life in a bustling Chinese city; beginner Mandarin, meanings of characters, how to get by! And they gain insight into how the Chinese do business, and the behaviour expected of them in meetings and out among the locals and their culture. Our qualified, native Chinese trainers put the learners at ease, and give them the tools and confidence for this significant relocation.
We look forward to more similar projects together with Crown, involving other exciting global cultures and challenging languages.
