December 14, 2016 Cultural Intelligence: Attracting Clients Who Are Different From Ourselves

Are you unwittingly alienating clients and prospects? The goal of this session is to examine different cultural dimensions that may affect the client relationship. An example would be how different cultures interpret eye contact. In some cultures, eye contact is considered necessary to build trust; in others, eye contact can be disrespectful or challenging.

Diversity permeates business today. In 2015, almost 40% of new entrepreneurs in the USA identified as non-white, and more than 27% were immigrants. In today’s marketplace, effective consultants need to understand clients and prospects from different cultures to strengthen relationships and improve sales.

Join us Wed December 14th and learn about cultural differences that can help you avoid alienating and build stronger trust and deeper connection with your clients and prospects. You’ll leave better prepared to navigate the tricky waters of cultural communication!
