During the trainings, the combination of theory and practice and the joint development of courses of action for dealing with cultural challenges have provided my employees and me with a true added value. Mr. Büchi’s sustainable inputs help us during negotiations and client meetings on a daily basis. I value his expertise, knowledge, as well as razor-sharp analyses.

At Jet Aviation Business Jets, we have engaged Mr. Büchi to train our crew members concerning intercultural communication. Having dealt with different cultures, nationalities, and religions for many years, we were very curious about how Mr. Büchi would teach our crew members the essentials of intercultural communication in a short time. We were impressed with his speech, his wide knowledge, and his touch of humor. Also, the feedback received from our crew members has all been very positive, and we do not want to miss Mr. Büchi in our training the next year. He is doing a wonderful job in the sense of helping people to understand each other and to broaden their own limits. Thank you very much, Mr. Büchi!
