Navigating Cultural Diversity Panel / German-NZ Chamber of Commerce lunch
Navigating Cultural Diversity Panel : A German-New Zealand Chamber of Commerce lunch
This session is going to be at least as informative as it is entertaining –join us on our brief journey to the root causes of German behaviour and be entertained along the way.
While enjoying a drink and a delicious lunch Monique Surges will attempt to guide the panellists from well know German companies, not to mention opposing sides – Germans working in New Zealand and New Zealanders working for German companies – into key revelations.
In the 'New Zealand corner', we have:
- Murray Whyte, Principal at Avid.legal, who has worked in Germany.
- Mike Walsh, CEO of VTNZ, who works for a New Zealand company that became a German subsidiary.
- Jim Bibby, Managing Director of Stihl, who works for a German subsidiary in New Zealand that reports directly to Germany
In the 'German corner', we have:
- Beate Gehricke, Managing Director of Eco Heating (Representative of Wolf GmbH), from Germany and made NZ home 15 years ago.
- Thomas van Raamsdonk, General Manager of Pro Clima, also from Germany and made NZ home for more than a decade.
Let’s air all frustrations and come up with some solutions to make this the best working relationship possible!
An attendee quote: "The content and delivery of the presentations, and the panel discussions afterwards, were very beneficial to my business. I felt very welcome at the event (being my first GNZCC event) and really learned a lot about doing business with Germans. Thank you, NZ Trade Connection."
Please note, attendees of this workshop are welcome to attend the Negotiating with Germans, beforehand at VTNZ, located in the same building. When registering, please state that you wish to attend both events.
