CLE: Cultural Competency: Working with International Clients

The last decade has seen an emergence of tech hubs across the globe, including in China, Japan, Korea, India, Singapore, and Israel—to only name a few. Whether your international clients are tech giants or solo inventors, increasing your cross-cultural competence will help you and your clients build stronger relationships, communicate more effectively, and work together to achieve your clients’ objectives. This 1-hour CLE will address common challenges when working with international clients, such as how to navigate language barriers and cultural differences.
