Cross Cultural & Diversity Consultancy Set-Up

Cultural Consulting Elite TM

Establish yourself as a successful Cross Cultural Consultant!
Use your knowledge and degree to start a successful business!
Develop techniques, tools, and a strategy to win business globally!

As a seasoned intercultural and diversity expert, I get a call once a week by those looking for tips and resources to start up a cross cultural and/or diversity consulting and training business. As per their request, I’m now offering a special program that not only gives advice but delivers the specific details for establishing yourself as a thought leader in the field. As a participant in this 2 1/2 day program, you’ll get techniques, tools, and business strategies to further catapult your intercultural and diversity knowledge and theory into a profitable consulting and training business!

I, myself, have a Master’s in Intercultural Relations, specializing in Diversity Training. I’ve been trained and certified by numerous founding theorists in cross cultural psychology, international management, global mindset development, global diversity, and intercultural communication. I’ve worked on projects in over 40 countries with large multinationals to individual entrepreneurs. My clients have included 3M, Commerzbank, Cisco, L’Oreal, Mozilla, MTV, Porsche, and SAP. And I’ve commercially published three books, No Such Thing as Small Talk: 7 Keys to Understanding German Business Culture, Cultural Transformation Tweet, and Why European Companies Fail in the US Market, and How Yours Can Succeed.

I say all that not to brag, but to give you an idea of the kind of exciting career I’ve made (and continue to make) in this amazing field which only becomes more and more important in today’s global business world. And, I couldn’t have done it without a terrific education, amazing mentors, and loyal client partners. Let me help you quickly get your business up and running – and quickly get access to what I have – by sharing the secrets to my success.

Cultural Consulting Elite™ is a program designed specifically for those hungry to ramp up their own consulting practice, to put their business securely on the map, and differentiate themselves in the intercultural, cross cultural, and diversity training and consulting world. Cultural Consulting Elite™ will ensure you’re well on your way to a highly reputable and successful consultancy!
