We don’t need a passport or visa to cross cultures Whether we have or haven’t travelled abroad, our world is becoming smaller thanks to the advances in technological communications. Consequently, we are crossing cultures all the time; whether we interact with people in our community who come from different ethnic backgrounds or we communicate and connect with others abroad using emails, video conferencing or any other form of digital communication.
Ewest Connect is your key to transforming cultural gaps into a shared space of effective communication, powerful connections and desirable results.
We provide cross cultural workshops, trainings and coaching services.
Own the knowledge and skills for effective adaptation in cross cultural environments
Setting goals with a clear vision is a promising start. However, in order to expand your business and reach new markets you will need to eliminate cultural barriers by building strong connections with teams, clients and business partners across cultures.
Our mission is to work with teams in drawing up and designing a cultural map that will engage everyone. To acknowledge different types of communication styles, culture sensitivities and cultural gaps.
Together we will create a work environment based on mutual understanding, and trust that sets the basis for meaningful conversations and allows creative ideas and solutions to emerge.

“Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is a progress;
working together is success.” Henry Ford
We believe in collaboration, Becoming a Global Citizen is a new project designed by Kimberly Hunn founder of EGI and Rehab Abbas founder of EWest Connect.
BGC offers customized workshops and programmes designed for academic professionals, high-school and graduate students that are interested in developing their capacity to integrate their cross-cultural experience with a desire to make a constructive impact on business and society.
We believe that respectful human interaction begins with the people we live and work with every day. It is in the small and powerful gestures that we make that our presence can be felt and our intentions can promote the open-mindedness and curiosity we need to solve the larger challenges of our time.
The most important feature of this project is building trust, intercultural competence and recognizing that there is a predictable pattern all people move through when faced with change and cultural diversity. When we can observe and name the issues that keep us from living and working more productively together, we are able to unravel the specific conversations and attitudes that best support understanding and creative ambition.

Ewest Connect was inspired by Rehab’s own personal and professional journey. It was an idea conceived as a direct result of the experience she had as a native Arabic speaker from Egypt who sought to embrace western culture through living and working in the west. Rehab has lived in three continents: Africa, Asia and Europe. She works with clients from all over the world: Germany, South Africa, Russia, Afghanistan, Czech Republic, Kenya, Egypt, UAE and England. She is passionate about understanding intercultural communication and holds the conviction that this knowledge is a crucial benefit and can be transformative at both an organizational and an individual level.

She was trained in the cross-cultural field by the Executive Director of The Interchange Institute, Dr Anne P. Copeland, and holds a Level 1 and 2 Certificate in ‘Crossing Cultures With Competence’ (CCWC).
In addition to this, Rehab has had ten years commercial experience working with CEOs and executive decision makers facilitating Company Board meetings at the Egyptian Natural Gas Company (GASCO).

She is involved with professional women network. She is also a member at the American Women of Surrey (AWS) and the International Women’s Club for expats living in Berkshire and Surrey (AWbs).
