WHERE THEORY & EXPERIENCE COME TOGETHER
Kimberly combines over 20 years of corporate and international business experience, with degrees in cross-cultural communications (MACCC) and electrical engineering (BSEE). Explaining communication as a technical problem, she helps industrial business leaders and technical teams to see the mechanisms behind international communications, then to design them for business results.
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.
International and business communications are also technologies. By understanding these technologies, we can design them to meet our needs."Kimberly VanLandingham, CEO, Strategist, Trainer, Speaker
