Our mission, since the beginning, has been the facilitation of positive and creative business relationships and better understanding between people from different national and cultural backgrounds.

About Us

Had it not been for EURIANS, a European network of management consultants, perhaps WorldWork would never have come into being…

Back in 2002, the member businesses of the network, from France, Germany, Sweden, Italy and the UK, proactively decided that it would be a good idea to invest in some cross-cultural training workshops to enable them all to work well together as a pan-European team.

It was at the very first of these workshops that Richard Lowe, a qualified psychometrician and management consultant, met Nigel Ewington. Nigel’s background was in language training and his business at the time, TCO (The Cambridge Office) was already in the field of cross-cultural training. During the workshops Richard and Nigel identified that there was nothing available in the market, in terms of psychometrics, to help people learn how to work in a cross-cultural context. They put their heads together and began to work on what would later become, our flagship product, The International Profiler (TIP®).

A little while after this the South Asian tsunami occurred. As relief agencies arrived to help, an unforeseen crisis presented itself. There was conflict between the demoralized local communities in the region and the specialist experts who had been sent in, by the charities, to help tackle such a major disaster.

Richard and Nigel’s services were called upon; their challenge? To set up constructive working practices across all the charity agencies and the local communities. They had to create ways and processes that could help the two sides build trust to be able to deal with the crisis. Their humanitarian efforts here planted the seeds for what would become the International Team Trust Indicator (ITTI).

So, since these events and following the official founding of the company in May 2002, a few more of us have joined the team and we have been busy producing training and development resources that help leaders, teams and individuals work effectively across boundaries.

WorldWork Bridge

Driving collaboration and managing change in a highly diverse, volatile and fast-moving global context is full of challenges. As experts in global working it’s our business:

  • to provide the tools that will help people to become more aware of themselves and others, in order to become highly effective in international and global roles.
  • To achieve this, we provide a range of products including self-assessment questionnaires and feedback processes, training videos and e-learning courses.
  • Our business model is to distribute our products through an expanding international network of more than 300 trainers, coaches and consultants, many of whom are licensed to use WorldWork psychometric products.
  • We also license people within organisations so that they can use our products to develop people and teams within their own industries. We help people involved in learning and development and provide the right support to deliver engaging interventions with sensitivity to the global dimension

We are proud of the fact that we provide a friendly, supportive and accessible service. Why not join our network?
