We live in a shrinking world – technology has brought together people and places around the globe that once seemed much more remote. In today’s global economy working across cultures is more important than ever.

We are all fluent in the expression of our own culture. We know the cues, understand the rules, and move through our business and social experiences with a native ease. It is usually only when we are fish out of water, that we realize just how much our own experiences shape our beliefs, form our assumptions, and steer our decisions.

In this webinar presented by Jamie Gelbtuch (C'01) you will learn some fundamental best practices for working across cultures. We will explore ways to effectively understand cultures, recognize differences in communication styles, and think about relationship building. Participants will acquire additional knowledge and tools for successful cross-border interactions.

In her role as Principal Consultant for Cultural Mixology, Jamie designs, delivers, and facilitates cross-cultural and language training programs in academic, business, and expatriate environments, as well as consults on projects that present unique challenges touching on culture and language. She prepares clients to achieve success as they navigate cultural differences and the challenge of becoming fluent in a new language while providing research, support and hands-on project management.

Jamie has worked with clients from more than 50 companies, universities, has also lived abroad and traveled extensively throughout five continents. She has particular expertise working with Latin American cultures and French and Spanish speaking countries.
