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.

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 Association of intercultural education training and researchManagement Linkedin Group.  Kimberly's experience and positive energy go into every project, as she translates your needs into engaging and team-building workshops.
