​A new place, a new home

With Xymena Ryes – Intercultural trainer for global leadership intercultural management

At our first FBSB workshop, held 16th October 2019, we had a really special guest in Xymena Ryes, an intercultural trainer for global leadership and intercultural management for Forbes 500 companies.

For the past 20 years, Xymena has lived in many different parts of the world such as Sweden, Russia, Turkey, United Arab Emirates and Germany. In 2017 and 2018 she was awarded a Global Service Achievement Award for outstanding contributions to training.

Together with Xymena we approached topics like ‘how to develop the right skills to live in an international environment’, and ‘how to adapt to changes’. Another interesting subject was how to appreciate the culture and values of the country we live in.

Talking about these subjects made the BSB community feel like a big family and helped us understand what a ‘home’ is.
