Co-Presented by the Business Law Section, Diversity in the Profession Committee and International Law Committee

Interacting with diverse colleagues and clients can be complex. Are you adept at communications with associates from China, Russia, India, or Brazil? Do you know how to start a conversation with an Emirati? Or how to avoid being banned in Beijing?

Terri Morrison, co-author of the bestselling Kiss Bow or Shake Hands® Series (an #1 seller with more than 325,000 copies sold) will deliver an entertaining and informative presentation on intercultural business and legal practices, protocol and marketing. She will help you acquire valuable cultural intelligence in global communication styles - from direct speech with Swiss bankers to silence with South Koreans. Understanding international decision-making priorities, negotiating styles and motivating factors can give you a new perspective on attracting and retaining global clients.

Terri Morrison is co-author of nine books, including Kiss, Bow or Shake Hands®: The Bestselling Guide to Doing Business in More Than Sixty Countries and Dun & Bradstreet's Guide to Doing Business Around the World. She conducts seminars in intercultural communications, diversity & inclusion and writes for many publications. Her most recent book, Kiss, Bow or Shake Hands®: Sales & Marketing is also an bestseller, and was #2 on BusinessWeek's best business book list. This year, she is working on her 10th book, Kiss, Bow or Shake Hands: Courtrooms and Corporate Counsels, which will be published by the American Bar Association.
