Speaker Alan Headbloom
Topic: Cross-Cultural Communication: Succeeding in Global Business
The global business economy is upon us, but not every American is comfortable working there. While we are confident in our technical skills, we are often uncomfortable working outside our usual cultural silos. Our international business partners have different skin tones and body coverings. They use accented English. We frequently need to repeat ourselves on conference calls, and they certainly don’t get our sarcasm. Interculturalist Alan Headbloom takes the dread out of working across borders. A lifelong culture-crosser, he will demystify the universal tendency to flock with birds just like us and guide participants into new ways of thinking, speaking, and being when working transnationally. Hands-on and interactive exercises make his presentation fly by, and participants will have time to ask follow-up questions related to their own workplace.
