What Clients say about the MIC Course
I definitely recommend this course because it is highly interactive and provides you with practical tools that can be used in the professional work as well. I was motivated throughout the whole course and even sad it ended! You are pushed to think about yourself, your culture and observe others better, as well as to produce content that can be used for your training! I love that Barbara promotes conversation between the participants, which also is intercultural training since we all come from very diverse backgrounds. We were asked to hold a webinar, which was scary at first but was and amazing experience and definitely useful if you want to be/are a coach. Anna Friberg
I could not recommend it more. It is a truly transformative learning experience. It will change the way you look at your own relationships with others and will allow you to become more open and compassionate. It will allow you to find your own blind spots. And reassure you that everyone else has them as well. It will build your confidence in the IC topic. And coach you to become (better) IC professional. Magdalena Szumna
I feel equipped to structure the content in a professional way. Interactions with other participants, getting to know them through intro videos, discussion call and final call, their webinars. I learned from them as well. Amazing!

I felt that the MIC was a great first insight into the potential for a future career as an Intercultural Trainer. I found it engaging and really opened my eyes to what I don’t know but also made me realise that this course is an excellent introduction to the world of Intercultural Communication. Would definitely recommend! Annelie Wambeek
I stepped out of my comfort zone (the webinar) and it was paralyzing and I am happy I could do it and it helped me realize a lot about myself and my limits.
The course was structured, but the content and the way it was run was fluid and comprehensive and with a lot of human factor – this helped me remind myself that not everything needs to be perfect, overly structured or overly thought.
