How we work

At DIALOG we are known for the unique nature of our study tour services, our flexible approach, and our specialised expertise. In addition to our reputation for excellence, what really makes us stand out is our global network of strategic alliances.

For many years we have been introducing our study tour delegations to the leading experts and organisations in their chosen sector and region. Over time we have formed strong relationships with many of these illustrious people and organisations, who now participate enthusiastically in our professional programs.

 

You will get unique and exceptional learning and networking opportunities, making us the obvious choice for your study tour partner.

 

Our process

 

 

Proprietary operational methodologies, tools and project management procedures

We use proprietary operational methodologies, tools and project management procedures, so we can customise and scale our service to match the specific requirements of your project. We appreciate that a successful study tour must balance the varied needs of all participants, and ensure that both your delegates and the organisations they visit benefit from the exchange of best practice, knowledge and culture.

We begin every project by sitting down with you to get a thorough understanding of your needs, and to determine the best way to meet your objectives. Drawing on our detailed research into the expertise available in your chosen sector and region, we will then work with you to design the most beneficial and efficient tour program.

Our work encompasses every aspect of tour organisation, and we can offer any combination of our services that you require. We will act as liaison with all the host institutions for your visit, prepare briefs and provide expert translation services if required, to ensure that information exchanges are as efficient and cost effective as possible.

We will make all the practical arrangements for your program and accompany your delegation on their tour, to ensure that every aspect of your trip runs smoothly.

We will then conclude the project by meeting any reporting requirements you may have.
