Lost in translation: Navigating the challenges of communicating in a globally connected world - 2nd Nov 2021

< Back to Event

Do you work or study with people from a wide variety of backgrounds and cultures? Do your words sometimes get ‘lost in translation’? Is English an additional language for you? This session brings together experts from our School of Languages and Applied Linguistics with colleagues working in business and health and social care. They will discuss the challenges of interacting in a globally connected world, considering the impact of language, culture, time zone, and whether you are online or communicating face-to-face. As well as helping you recognise the complexities involved, this highly interactive session will offer top tips and strategies to use in your work and study.
