It's time to J-Globalize your business
Intercultural communication and global business success programs like no other
Positive Global English C50 Communication
(Mindset, Meetings, Presentations Package)
Build key communication skills in a series of interrelated creative activities
The problem is although our organization plans to expand global business we don’t have enough people ready and willing to communicate in English…
Hold this seminar for all employees and many will feel positive about English and clear about why its important to learn intercultural communication skills and change our behavior for global success…
Yesterday’s seminar brought a new way of thinking for me and I learned a lot. I thought Jon was a wonderful person who understood the way of thinking of Westerners and Japanese people. I also want to absorb the good part of Western people’s way of thinking.
I had a great time at the seminar, and learned a lot from it. What is I am sure about now is that I would like to work with many people from different countries and backgrounds.
Thank you for today’s program! Your teaching method was great especially for Japanese, and because of this, I think everyone was enjoying to join the debate. Also It was a good opportunity to think about my career path.
