WHERE THEORY & EXPERIENCE COME TOGETHER
Kimberly combines over 20 years of corporate and international growth experience, with degrees in cross-cultural communications (MACCC) and electrical engineering (BSEE). She provides practical and relevant models for improvement, followed by exercises to use the models in real business situations.
Starting as an engineer with DuPont (a Fortune 50 company), she developed a passion for travel, growth and hard work. She moved from R&D Manager and Global Product Manager, to Global Business Manager, Corporate Growth Manager, and EMEA Regional Manager (P/L $150,000,000). These international roles, including travel to over 50 countries, inspired research into international communications and, eventually, a masters in cross-cultural communication (with honors).
Today, Kimberly helps teams and leaders use communication to build trust, relationships, and results. She trains TEDx speakers and is a keynote speaker on culture and exporting at universities, the European American Chamber of Commerce, and the World Trade Center. She is on the board of SIETAR Switzerland and manages the Cross-Cultural Management Linkedin Group. Kimberly's experience and positive energy go into every project, as she translates your needs into engaging and team-building workshops.
There is technology behind international communication. Just like an x-ray machine shows the underlying structure of our body, communication and cross-cultural models provide insight for leaders and teams to improve communication and results." Kimberly VanLandingham
