There will also be a session on rights and responsibilities in the Norwegian workplace. The speaker TBC shortly.
We will round up the course with a special networking event, where the participants will be able to talk directly with representatives of Norwegian companies and organizations.
We will start our networking with a special quest Julien S. Bourrelle, author of The Social Guidebook to Norway: An Illustrated Introduction. Julien is a Canadian rocket scientist specialized in astrodynamic engineering. He studied and lived in a variety of countries where he adapted his lifestyle to the local cultural norms and rituals.
Moving to Norway in 2009 has been the most challenging cultural experiences of his life and the starting point of an unexpected career. Julien travels the world lecturing about cultural differences that affects the way we communicate and interact at work and in society. His lectures help organizations benefit better from diversity. Julien is also the author of three books on the Scandinavian cultures.
