Tuesday, September 10, 6:30 pm
Fenwick & West, 801 California St., Mountain View, CA
mobile, connected world, it's likely that we work with
colleagues, clients, and consultants from a multitude of
cultures and backgrounds. Each brings a preferred way of
communicating and views on how to conduct business. Without
understanding what shapes their perspectives and actions, it's
easy for problems to occur: comments can be perceived as
insults, misunderstandings may lead to missed deadlines, and
opportunities are lost. Lanie Denslow of World Wise
Intercultural Training & Resources will share her insights
on how different cultural backgrounds shape attitudes toward
time, tasks and talking.
