‘Working with the Philippines’ Program Feedback

In 2016 hundreds of Australian employees participated in Beasley Intercultural’s Working with the Philippines 35 minute elearning program. This great online program enables Australian employees to be more productive when working with their colleagues in the Philippines.

What our participants said:

‘The most valuable component of the elearning for myself was the extent of the cultural differences between my country and the Philippines, and the way the people of the countries interact with each other.’

‘It was valuable to understand how what I say and how I say it comes across on the other end.’

‘I will think more about how I communicate and especially what I say.’

‘I am going to make communication more specific and be open to spending more time developing a relationship with the person on the other end of the phone.’

How would you describe the program?

‘Easy to understand and relevant so that we can get things done more efficiently.’

‘An eye opener to things that us Australians may not have known or understood.’

‘Informative. I thought I was being friendly, but at the same time I was probably confusing people.’

‘A great tool to be able to effectively work with the staff in Manila.’

 Thank you to all of our participants!  Your deeper understanding of your colleagues in the Philippines and new communication strategies will make a big difference to business outcomes for your organisations.
