Alexandra Brodin


Specialising in cultural agility/ cross-cultural & diversity coaching for expatriates, diplomats, business owners, project managers, line managers and executives who do business abroad or who lead multicultural or cross-border teams and activities. My CPD-accredited coaching helps international professionals build their cultural intelligence and leverage cultural differences for increased performance, innovation, talent engagement and retention.

Are you managing a multicultural and/ or geographically dispersed team? Are you going on an international assignment? Is your company merging or starting a joint venture with a foreign company? Are your clients, customers or partners abroad? Are you an HR professional managing a global workforce?

I help global professionals decode the complexities of national cultures and equip them with the relevant practical tools, skills and strategies to lead, communicate and do business more efficiently with their foreign partners, colleagues, clients and stakeholders.

Thanks to my 2 decades-long corporate experience in Global Mobility, Learning & Development and in the Media, I know firsthand the impact of cultural differences on the business world. My bi-cultural French and German background, as well as the fact that I lived, studied and worked in several countries, developed my cultural intelligence early on. I have trained and coached over 1’000 C- level executives, managers and diplomats across a broad spectrum of industries (FMCG, Commodity Trade, Pharmaceuticals, Life Sciences, Banks, Insurance, IT, International Organizations and Embassies) and nationalities.

I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Sciences (with a focus on International Relations) from the University of Geneva (Switzerland) and a Bachelor’s Degree in History from the University of Paris Nanterre (France). I further specialized in Cross-Cultural Communication, Global Leadership and Strategy from INSEAD (France) and Thunderbird (USA).
