Technical Committees draw on the skills and experience of a cross-section of stakeholders from a wide variety of nominating organizations, so working effectively with a diverse group of participants is an essential skill in standardization. And if you are selected to represent the UK view on a European or international committee, you will be travelling to other countries and meeting representatives from National Standards Bodies from across the world so you’ll benefit from having an appreciation of different cultural, national and linguistic backgrounds. Of course, these skills are useful for business generally, not just for contributing to the development of standards. The broad aim of this interactive, one-day training course is to enhance your practical skills for influencing and communicating in an inclusive manner, enabling you to build rapport and consensus in both national and global contexts.
