Current Business Challenges in Europe

2020 will be a big year for Europe with a fresh-faced Commission and one of its key members exiting the bloc.


Even a quick scan of the headlines reveals a number of developments in Europe have combined to create a climate of political and economic uncertainty.

  • Great Britain's departure from the European Union.
  • Concerns about security.
  • the decline in exports from Germany
  • the banking crisis in Italy


During times of uncertainty, it is essential for corporate trends to monitor trends, take proactive steps to boost corporate performance, and provide support to employees.

Since 1996, Executive Oasis International, a Toronto based consulting firm, has helped rapidly changing organizations from 18 countries:

  • build cohesive teams.
  • thrive in a fast paced environment.
  • Fire up a team that's anxious or discouraged
  • break down silos and improve cross-functional teamwork
  • design & execute innovative strategies to stay ahead of the curve
  • identify new markets to replace niches where demand is declining
  • establish early warning systems to spot trends that may have an impact on organizational performance


Your team will realize these benefits from our powerful, facilitated team building simulations, assistance with organizational development initiatives, and management consulting services.



During the team building session for the sales representatives of our Metal Division, we had an opportunity to experience an approach which was quite different from other programs that we have seen. You certainly helped build a better team spirit within our division.

Ernie Sweeney, President & CEO, Wurth Canada

It was a really great team building. Worked and collaborated together. Fun.

Avril Murray, Novo Nordisk Canada

Excellent facilitator. She greatly respected and accommodated our differences in learning styles. I left the session with many ideas and practices to think about and implement.

Alison Saunders, Manager Ikea

Live examples regarding paradigm shifts, corporate failures and successes, the use of interactive techniques rather than lectures, and the flexible agenda contributed to the success of Visexecutaries.
