By Grant Hall. Founder of League Cultural Diplomacy
Welcome to where words fail.
I’m Grant Hall, a cultural diplomacy consultant and facilitator and Founder of League Cultural Diplomacy (LCD). LCD is a new business that helps its clients get the cultural aspects of their business operations right when operating in foreign markets. LCD is due for launch in mid-2015.
LCD is the culmination of over twenty years experience working internationally in the cultural, government and education sectors. Its mission allows me to draw upon much of what I’ve learned throughout my career which now spans three decades and four continents.
My career aim is to change the way corporate influence is sought in foreign markets or cross-cultural environments through corporate cultural diplomacy (CCD). where words fail is all about CCD and issues pertinent to the corporate, cultural and diplomatic worlds. I hope where words fail will raise awareness of CCD as a socially responsible, culturally-savvy and highly efficient way to gain influence in new markets.
In a globalised world it’s becoming more important for businesses to have the capacity to internationalise their operations. Internationalising a business is challenging, but there are tools available to help you achieve success when entering new markets. Focusing on international business strategy, Going Global is a blog-within-a-blog designed to help those of you who are in the early days of internationalising or are considering expanding your business operations abroad.
I hope you enjoy where words fail.
