"When I was brought in to lead a Franco-British team in Runcorn, I contacted Laure Butcher to raise the awareness of my team on the cultural differences of the two countries. Laure made this day a real success, with her enthusiasm and thorough knowledge of the two cultures.  As an output of the training course, my colleagues have modified their judgement and this new approach has increased the performance of the team"
