Corporate Cultural Talks
German and US-American citizens seem to live under very similar conditions. We look similar, and consume the same products and entertainment. Still, culturally the countries are much more different than many people know. Our cultural talks discuss a huge variety of cultural similarities and differences as well as the reasons for them.
