    “It’s not easy to negotiate multiple cultural differences in a business environment.  Ms. Jakubowski, with a deep understanding of and sensitivity to Japanese culture and business practices, as well as extensive experience with other cultures, gracefully and effectively navigates these waters. Especially as a foreign company operating in the U.S., having someone equipped with such skills is critical to success.”

    "Developing business from Japan had been a significant achievement for my company. However, to maintain the revenue stream I knew it was critical to provide my team with the proper training to manage and support our Japanese customers. Not only did our consultant have an impressive range of knowledge about the Japanese culture and relevant hands-on experience, but the training itself was executed in an exceptionally engaging and professional format. When I saw my team in action in Japan after having gone through the seminar, I knew the investment had already paid for itself multiple times over."

    "The questions didn’t stop until my consultant fully understood the end result I was working towards.  I fondly recall a 3 hour conversation in the freezing cold that convinced me I could completely trust both the content and the source of counsel I was receiving."

    “I have never been immersed so quickly and thoroughly in a culture as I was during my on-site cultural immersion program in Japan.  Not only was I equipped with a critical and relevant cultural toolbox in an exceptionally efficient and enjoyable fashion, but I also walked away with a whole new level of confidence in professionally handling Japanese business partners.  A gem of an experience!”

    “Ms. Jakubowski and her team consistently exceeded our expectations by understanding cross-cultural aspects of both business and human relations between Japan and the U.S. Whether it was suggesting ways to enhance our management skills and knowledge, advising Japanese management on how to communicate effectively with American employees, or advising us when we faced difficulties caused by different cultural and social customs, the counsel was top notch.  Invaluable asset!”

These insights are effectively utilized in her seminars, helping both Americans and Japanese to understand cultural differences in conducting business and effectively advising them how to bridge these cultural gaps.  We also greatly appreciate her ability to create a very entertaining atmosphere that pulls in every participant in the room!”

    “Thanks to my consultant’s understanding of Japanese words and concepts that are hard to translate into English, the nuances I wish to capture are done so accurately and professionally, without losing their original tone or meaning. And even native English speakers comment on the high quality of English writing!”
