Global Business Academy

Better teamwork, better results.


There’s no such thing as an inherent problem when dealing with team members in India.

It’s frustrating when your clear strategy results in poor outcomes. Not because you’re doing anything wrong, but because you’re dealing with a country that does things differently.

You could carry on accepting that problems will occur, or you could empower your people using the most formidable weapon in the business world – knowledge.

The Global Business Academy is a performance accelerator that combines consultancy with video-based e-learning to help your teams anticipate and understand obstacles. As a result, they will overcome them, optimising the strategic advantages of doing business in India.
