PRESENTATION TITLE: SAY Anything to Anyone, Anywhere! 5 Keys to Successful Cross-Cultural Communication

PRESENTATION DATE: Sunday, June 12th from 4:30 to 5:30 pm

CAMPFIRE PRESENTATION: Monday, June 13 from 9:00 to 9:30 am

PRESENTATION DESCRIPTION: This lively and interactive session is based on Gayle Cotton’s Bestselling Book, ‘SAY Anything to Anyone, Anywhere! 5 Keys to Successful Cross-Cultural Communication’. Differences are the spice of life! But cultural differences can also be the source of embarrassing blunders and miscommunication in the workplace, and for business and social travelers alike. We must manage preexisting cultural expectations, understand cultural sensitivities, avoid conflict, and sidestep offending someone due to cultural differences — albeit unintentional. The strength of any multicultural relationship depends entirely on the ability to effectively communicate, and to build trust and rapport in person, on the phone, and by email. To do this, we need to understand how words, tonality, and body language vary with every culture. This presentation will increase your self-awareness, help you adapt your style, and enable you to be proactive in multi-cultural relationships. It’s Gayle’s most requested keynote topic, and has lots of humor and take-home value! As an extra bonus, Gayle has customized the session for Meeting and Event Planners. She will also be doing a Campfire Session to answer your personal questions about cross-cultural interactions or the specific cultures you want to know about!

It’s easy for business travelers to think that even when they travel, business is going to be done pretty much the same way it is at home. But that’s not always the Saudi 2case. Cultural differences can have a big impact on a social and business relationship. That’s why it’s important for business travelers to make sure they understand the culture of the country that they’re taking a business trip to.

The interview on cultural travel tips for Saudi Arabia is a brief snapshot of conversation guidelines for Saudi Arabia, tips for communicating in Saudi Arabia, and strategies for doing business with Saudi Arabia help with understanding the culture in Saudi Arabia. It’s important to keep in mind that as we homogenize as a ‘global culture’, cultural tendencies change and evolve as well. Awareness is the first step when it comes to cultural do’s and taboos for Saudi Arabia and tips for intercultural communication!

Get Ready for Chinese New Year – 2016 is the Year of the ‘MONKEY’! Chinese New Year Monkey-2-16

Chinese New Year 2016 is on Monday, February 8th.

The date of Chinese New Year is based on the Chinese lunar calendar, not the Gregorian calendar, and is always somewhere in the period from January 21 to February 20. It’s the longest public holiday in China, and millions of people travel to China to celebrate every year. In 2016, most Chinese will be off work 7 days from Sunday, February 7 (New Year’s Eve) to Saturday, February 13.

It’s Your Year Monkeys!

2016 is a year of the Monkey according to the Chinese 12-year animal zodiac cycle. Other Monkey years include: …1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004… If you were born then … you’re a Monkey! Each Chinese zodiac year begins on Chinese New Year’s Day.

Great Article! ’10 Tips for Improved Communication’ Is on YPO

Posted on January 16, 2016 by Leave a comment

Young President’s Organization (YPO): 10 Tips to Improve Communication      ypo

“We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak,” Greek philosopher Epictetus wrote. One of the most important and most neglected communication skills for leaders is listening. What most people consider listening — the absence of speaking — is a poor substitute for the actual art of active listening.

According to Gayle Cotton, Emmy award winner, president of Circles of Excellence and author of “Say Anything to Anyone, Anywhere”, “If people feel that what they say doesn’t matter because you’re not really going to listen to it, you keep people from wanting to communicate with you and create difficult, superficial relationships. It stifles creativity.”
