The current global economy calls for employees to possess the necessary skills to interact effectively with people from different cultural backgrounds. Knowing how to market in an appropriate context, negotiate and not alienate, forge trust and successfully communicate are keys to success. This workshop provides participants with the tools to be more fluent in any global business setting with a focus on the differences between Germany and France, and China and Japan. Brad Gosche, Senior Director of the Global Fluency Institute in Columbus, Ohio, will lead the workshop.
The afternoon Panel Discussion will shed light on the dos and don'ts of global business dealings as our expert panelists share their professional insight. Led by our moderator, Dee Kivett, CEO NextGen Supply Chain Integrators and adjunct professor, Clemson University, panelists will share their first-hand experience in international business and the do’s and don’ts that come through years of experience at the top of their fields. Pete Selleck, retired President and CEO, Michelin North America, along with others including Ralph Heredia, VP Business Development, Zipit Wireless, will give you a better understanding of why Global Fluency matters in the work place and how you and your employees can become more globally fluent.
