Intercultural Training

Building bridges between your Japanese & European employees
Europe is home to hundreds and thousands of multinational companies – Japanese, too. The number of Japanese subsidies in the region has been on the rise in the past more than 3 decades – this has given many fruitful opportunities for European and Japanese cooperation. However, in order to achieve outstanding business results together and maintain a healthy work relationship, understanding each nation’s background and communication styles is key.

Sűdy & Co. partnered with the Japan Consulting Office (JCO) in 2013 to support multinational companies in Hungary with joint intercultural trainings that help overcome cultural differences between European and Japanese while also increasing effectiveness in the workplace.

We offer public & in-house seminars – separately for Europeans and Japanese – designed to improve cultural understanding, intercultural communication and company-specific trainings tailored to the needs of your company.

We keep the training group to a reasonable size to be able to involve all participants during discussions and teamwork while ensuring a full educational experience.


We focus on skills and techniques rather than theory. Our training materials are based on many years of experience working with Japanese in Europe and Japan.


We focus on participants’ daily challenges and make sure they all leave the program with communicational tools they can utilize in their everyday work.
