"If there is any one secret of success, it lies in the ability to get the other person‘s point of view and see things from that person‘s angle as well as from your own.“ (Henry Ford)

What people say about me

“I definitely recommend an intercultural training with Wiebke Homborg, she is a professional who has lived several experiences abroad and studied what may be happening to you or will happen to you when facing a different culture. The training of Wiebke helped me a lot to understand my own culture as Mexican – there were several aspects on which I had not reflected – and the German culture. Thanks to her training I consider that I can better understand the cultural differences of Germany and Mexico and I now have more tools for my cultural immersion. Wiebke is very dedicated, kind and professional; I recommend these trainings. Never underestimate cultural differences and as often, all we need is help to understand them and from there the adaptation is much easier.”
Javier N., expat from Mexico

“Ms. Homborg’s intercultural training motivated and sensitized me to the clear differences to German culture. It was well structured and was supplemented with many examples from Ms. Homborg’s personal experience in Mexico. I have been in Mexico for two weeks now and have already successfully used my first experience of training in communication with my Mexican colleagues. The training is recommendable for those who travel to Mexico for a longer time.”
Matthias F., expat from Germany

“Wiebke’s fun and information-packed sessions were very useful for me: personalised and interesting insights into understanding the German culture to better navigate expat life in Germany. Coaching on third-culture kids was particularly relevant. I found comfort in many instances of realising “oh, so it’s not just me!” An essential resource for anyone who has moved to Germany as an expat.“
Amber, Expat from Australia
