Founded in 2013, ConnectingCultures is a consultancy firm specialized in optimizing communication and collaborations across cultures. Through consulting and training, ConnectingCultures enables organizations and employees to build and implement a global skill-set. ConnectingCultures is founded and headed by CEO & Principal Consultant, Signe Ørom and includes another 21 country and culture specialists.
After completion of her Ph.D. degree in culture and language, Signe Ørom decided to pursue a career outside the academic world and become a self-employed business owner. Driven by personal interest and an increasing need for guidance on business culture in the BRIC country Brazil from Scandinavian businesses, Signe Ørom established Brasilienkonsulenten (Brazil-Consultancy) back in 2011.
It soon became clear to Signe Ørom that the clients’ needs for cross-cultural training went beyond the Brazilian focus of the consultancy firm. Knowing this, Signe Ørom decided to establish a new business to accommodate the needs of her clients. Signe Ørom founded the consultancy firm ConnectingCultures in 2013 and since its establishment she has delivered trainings in more than 20 countries.
In ConnectingCultures, we value research-based knowledge, which is why Signe Ørom is associated with the University of Copenhagen, as a senior researcher. Staying connected to the academic world enables Signe and ConnectingCultures to offer cultural training that not only delivers research-based knowledge, but also ensures that the most recent global competencies are implemented in the cross-cultural work of our clients.
