Webinar: SAY Anything to Anyone, Anywhere! 5 Keys to Successful Cross-Cultural Communications

This is a highly rated webinar on do’s and taboos for cultures and cultural tips for international business that I did for Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO). Please feel free to take the webinar at your convenience anytime… anywhere!

The webinar includes business travel tips for unfamiliar cultures and conversation guidelines for Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin American, and the Middle East. It also has tips for communicating in different countries, as well as strategies for doing business with unfamiliar cultures to help with understanding cultures around the world. 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!

To learn more about the Dos and Taboos for different cultures, and the cultural communication styles for Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East – order Gayle Cotton’s bestselling book SAY Anything to Anyone, Anywhere! 5 Keys to Successful Cross-Cultural Communication’ available on Amazon as a Book, eBook, or Audio Book

Come Hear Me Speak at the MPI World Conference!

Posted on April 30, 2016 by Leave a comment

I will be speaking at the #MPI World Education Conference #WEC16 on June 12th

from 4:30 to 5:30 pm!

The topic will be based on my bestselling book

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

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!

What You’ll Learn in the ‘5 Keys’!

  • Key One: Create Proactive Communication and Avoid Reactive Communication
  • Key Two: Rapport Secrets to Bridge the Cultural Gap
  • Key Three: Organize Productive Interactions
  • Key Four: Strategies for Relationships
  • Key Five: Success Leaves Clues… Do’s & Taboos

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 case. 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 display begins on the publish date of March 18th, and will continue through April 16th. Everyone living in NYC — or traveling there during that time — please come by and see me!

A few words about my book:SAY Anything to Anyone, Anywhere! 5 Keys to Successful Cross-Cultural Communication

This book actually began when I moved to Geneva, Switzerland to work with a corporate training company and develop training programs for international companies and branches of the United Nations. We soon discovered that each and every course needed to be adapted — in some way — for the respective cultures we worked with. Furthermore, we realized that it was necessary to adapt our communication style and presentation approach to even discuss— let alone sell —our services! We found we needed to be able to say anythingto anyone, anywhere.Thus began the book and the course entitled ‘5 Keys to Successful Cross-Cultural Communication’ – an approach we designed for our corporate success as well as for the success of the readers of this book.
