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.
