Cross Cultural Coaching & Translation

I am a seasoned public speaker with a knack for communicating complex issues effectively. Those who have taken my courses tell me that, not only are my presentations captivating and that I am personable and entertaining, but they have walked away with a newly gained and unique perspective on the subject. I am available for cross-cultural training or consulting on Middle East, human rights, and public policy.
