Watch the recording of our webinar, and you will learn more about how to leverage culture to successfully collaborate on new ventures or projects in Africa. European SMEs can use Hofstede's 6-Dimensional model on culture to quickly establish the right understanding and build trust with their potential partners on the continent. Our speaker, Okey Okere, managing director of Hofstede Insights Nigeria, illustrates this through case examples comparing selected European and African countries. In the second part of the webinar, Myriam Munezero, the Chairperson of Think Africa, presents Think Africa's professional service and talk more about sourcing and utilizing local knowledge with a focus on the development of African countries.
