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.
