A.C.E.’s cross cultural training and facilitation services for major corporate and government clients have been on the increase over the past decade. These large institutions and corporations are seeking to prepare their leadership and staff for roles which tie into the global economy and expose them to multicultural and multilingual environments. As a result, A.C.E.’s expertise in making high-level introductions or tailoring training programs to the needs of such clients are in high demand. These clients include U.S.-based and non U.S.-based entities such as the Ministry of Education of Japan, the Chamber of Commerce of Abu Dhabi, and U.S. corporations such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Boeing. This article which appeared recently in USA Today highlights A.C.E.’s leading role in linking together the Pacific Northwest and the Gulf Cooperation Council regions over the past 5 years through cross cultural facilitation and training.
