The topic of safety has recently gained in importance for several companies and institutions that send their employees abroad. Many countries are increasingly plagued by violence and conflict. In Brazil, the inhabitants suffer from crime and its consequences, due to the large social divide and systematic corruption.
The majority of violent crimes in Brazil include pickpocketing, mugging people getting in and out of cars, robbing people at traffic lights, and “lightning kidnapping” (ATM stops). The perpetrators are usually individual, belligerent parties or belong to criminal gangs.
Thus, in addition to language, cultural and intercultural preparation for Brazil, the demand for security training has risen.

Indulgence workshop by Gerhard Hain and Christoph Hauser allows you to dip your senses into foreign cultures

When and to whom do you give your business card at a business meal with Japanese – and which way do you hold it? How many bows or half-bows are appropriate when doing so, and what are the "ten do's and don'ts" for doing business with Arabian business associates? If you are preparing for intercultural business relationships by limiting yourself to such questions, you're doing it wrong, according to Gerhard Hain: "It's not about fixed rules, it's about encounters between people – whether on a national or international level". With his consulting firm ti communication, he, along with 80+ team members, has been successfully supporting companies in internationalizing their businesses for 15 years now. Infineon, Robert Bosch, Hilti and several other international market leaders as well as SMEs are now part of their clientele.

"Learning can be fun and involves the senses"

Hain finds the stolid memorization of rules of conduct to be largely ineffective. Instead, he focuses on a deep understanding of cultural peculiarities and small communication codes, as well as observing without evaluating. "Learning can be fun and involve the senses", is a further principle at ti communication. Thus, it is only a matter of course that Gerhard Hain got together with an indulgence expert in the autumn of 2014 to combine learning and indulging: along with Christoph Hauser, known, among other things, for Hausers Kochschule (cooking school), he now offers "intercultural indulgence workshops". In groups of a maximum of ten persons, a one-day seminar will focus on a specific cultural realm where intercultural communication is explained in theory and practised in practical situations, followed by cooking and eating a typical meal of the respective country, which culminates in a sensory understanding of the target culture.
