Hello, I'm Yeşim

...your intercultural trainer and coach.

In an increasingly globalized world, intercultural competence is the key to success for companies, teams and individuals. Even if our similarities usually prevail, cultural differences can in some situations lead to mutual misunderstandings and personal conflicts.

My mission is to build bridges between cultures and promote understanding for the diversity of the global business world. As an experienced intercultural trainer and coach, I am at your side to strengthen your intercultural sensitivity and develop your skills in dealing with different cultures.

In this way you can fully exploit the potential of diversity in multicultural teams.


You ask yourself:

“How can I improve my current situation in an international company? What is the right path for my professional or personal development?”

Let's identify your needs together and choose the right approach.

    “In our organization we are often working with colleagues across the globe – in our week-long event we thought it was important to focus on how we can understand each other better even when we are all coming from different cultures. Yesim provided two insightful sessions for us on the topic of cultural intelligence and building trust in cross-border teams: both sessions were very well-received by our teams. Many colleagues expressed that this was one of their favorite sessions throughout the week, and that they would love to learn more!”
