“Finnish and German culture, communication and business practice: So similar and still surprisingly different“
Birgit Griese-Saarinen has been an intercultural trainer and coach since the year 2000. As a German citizen living in Finland, her professional and personal situation has granted her a rich variety of experiences in German-Finnish collaboration. These intercultural experiences are augmented by study periods in Denmark, Australia and at the Swedish-language Åbo Akademi in Turku. Her years of training, coaching, and consulting experience with the most diverse of target groups, as well as her training in education, and several certifications, provide for a diverse and interactive training environment. In addition to German and English, the certified trainer also speaks fluent Finnish.
