Jane Kassis Henderson is a Honorary Associate Professor of English and International Business Communication at ESCP Europe Paris campus. She is a graduate of the University of St-Andrews, Scotland, UK. She has taught in higher education in France in universities and management schools and delivered seminars and lectures on intercultural communication in various professional organisations.
One of her current research interests is the use of English as a working language in international business and academic contexts. She also conducts research on teaching multicultural audiences and learning in multicultural student groups in business schools and universities in Europe.
This research explores the concept of language boundaries in international teams in multinational companies which use English as their shared working language.
The aim of this research is to identify the implications these boundaries have on the formation and maintenance of trust through cooperation and relationship building. Findings so far suggest that it is aware language practices and sociolinguistic competence rather than expert language knowledge that fosters the development of trust in multicultural teams.
