Event description

Description

Instead of building walls, build bridges.

Join us for a social evening & guided discussion with Alagan Kanagaratnam, a local leader with 30+ years international work experience. Let's learn about the Sri Lankan workforce and find ways of collaborate together!

Are you a member of the expatriate community in Sri Lanka who...

... is working on startup projects in the country?
... working with local partners?
... conducting your own research to find suitable partners and ventures here?

It is most likely that you have gained some experience and impressions about doing business in Sri Lanka. Some impressions may be positive and other may worth reviewing. This event will focus on:

  • Some basic etiquette of meeting and greeting the Sri Lankan community. Insights on how to seek their input.
  • Little stories & Experiences of any cultural shocks
  • Understanding the mindset of the Sri Lankan general workforce and how some people develop lasting relationships
  • How to maintain the relationship bonds and still lead and deliver results
  • Brief introduction to general Leadership practices

This event is not only for expats. If you are a Sri Lankan professional looking to establish or currently maintaining international work relations, you will also be able to gain a better understanding and skillset to collaborate with different cultures more successfully.
