What Clients Say

“I just wanted to let you know how much your help meant to me when we were getting our global services effort going so many years ago. You and Gerry were fabulous and your expertise gave me great comfort and confidence for our clients. My very best regards and well wishes to you and the Cultural Awareness team for much continued success.”

– John Green (retired Paragon)

“…we chose to work only with CAI due to their practical approach and their proven ability to deliver results. Whilst the major elements of the relocation were exceptionally well handled the most impressive thing was the way in which relatively small details were taken care of. The follow through was exceptional and the family continued to receive support for a good period after our move..”

– Senior Vice President, International Corporation

“Spouse support came from an experienced professional…it was concise, informative, and productive.”


“I believe top management should follow this course as compulsory. Knowing what I know now, many mistakes are being made. Due to many “thinking” they know the culture without having followed the course.”

– Project Engineering Manager, Consumer Products Co.
