This BBC Friday, Cilla Utne, owner and president of Cross Cultural Journeys, will share with us on how to more effectively communicate across differences of culture, ethnicity, and traditions.

As our world gets increasingly polarized, do you ever find that your communication and interaction with others doesn’t seem to give you the desired response, or even A response? How often do you consider the context of your communication to have an impact on the recipient? Do you ever reflect how your own communication style may get in the way of you actually connecting with the other party?

Cilla Utne’s Cross Cultural Journeys is a purpose travel company based on Bainbridge Island. With an undergraduate from Stockholm University in intercultural studies, business and language, and an MBA in sustainability from Presidio Graduate School (formerly BGI), Cilla worked for two decades as a a cross-cultural consultant and trainer for C-suite executives as they prepared for living and working overseas. From time to time, she still freelances as a trainer for T-mobile, Nestle, and Ericsson in Seattle. Cilla’s contact info: crossculturaljourneys.com[email protected] | 800.353.2276 | 206.280.5360

BBC 15 November 2019 – “The Business Side Of The Artist/Inventor Journey” w/ Dr. Rosette Gault

This BBC Friday Dr. Rosette Gault will share a fascinating look at the business side of doing art and invention. Rosette will give a little hands-on presentation with artist founder’s vision and inventors journey – from long research, inception, conception, development, trademark patent and licensing, and business model – specifically the business side of the process – including what she has learned, and research still ahead.
 
Learn about the medium of paperclay which Rosette discovered, publishing her findings 20 years ago. Sculptors and other artists have adopted paperclay worldwide. The medium of paperclay saves time, fuel, and money, and opens a big door to sustainable materials research with natural polymers (from cellulose-based plant fiber compounds with minerals of ceramic clays, sustainable materials of the future). The roots of this medium were developed with the world’s largest field study by artists worldwide, and applications outside the field of art are many, e.g., filtration, medicine, refractories. More information available at rosettestudio.net and paperclayart.com. Rosette’s Amazon author page: amazon.com/Rosette-Gault/.
