LUN 2017-06-20: Diversity: Understanding Misperception and Miscommunication Across Cultures


Earn CEU’s toward your CFRE!

You have a meeting with a donor from a different ethnic background. Should it be a soft or firm handshake? Is direct eye contact a sign of respect or aggression? Is it a sign of disrespect to use your left hand to give an item to a donor from the Middle East, Africa or South Asia? Should you risk meeting a donor without first learning about the misperceptions and miscommunications that take place across cultures? Join us for a conversation between award-winning author and cross-cultural trainer Joe Lurie and Chris Wilder, CEO of Valley Medical Center Foundation. Joe Lurie will open your eyes so you will better understand cultural cues and miscues! Mr. Lurie’s clients around the world include Google, American Express, U.C. Berkeley and many others.
