What counts for me are the end results, and for that you can count on Chris. Working with Culture Matters has increased our productivity when it comes to working with other cultures.”

paul waitPaul Wait, CEO GTMC; London, UK

“Chris is an experienced culture expert. I’ve been doing business with him for years and have never been disappointed.

He not only knows what he’s talking about, he can also deliver it in a way that captures an audience, be it 10 people or 150 people. If culture is important to you (and for whom isn’t it) work with Chris.”

Brigit LawBrigit Law; Senior Trade Officer Dutch Embassy, Brussels Belgium

“Chris Smit offers excellent guidance in understanding the effect of cultural differences in doing business abroad. Even if, or especially when, it concerns trading with neighboring countries.

That’s why I asked Chris to sit in a panel discussion about cultural differences that was linked to a business matchmaking of young entrepreneurs from The Netherlands and Belgium. Bringing these young people at an early stage in their internationalization process in contact with experts like Chris, will help them succeed in their business.”

Jens SchusterJens Schuster; Senior Director Lufthansa City Center, Frankfurt Germany

“As a Senior Director for Lufthansa City Center International (LCCI) I deal with different cultures every day. I met Chris at a conference in Abu Dhabi, where he gave a keynote lecture. Immediately after I contracted him for our organization’s annual customer event.

Chris is able to capture the attention from the very first moment on, and hold it till the last minute. He broadens and deepens your understanding, as well as giving you the tools to overcome cultural differences within a global business world.”

Christophe ScholerChristophe Scholer; CEO Araxxe, Lyon France

“We’ve been growing rapidly internationally, so we needed to become culturally competent. For that, we have found the perfect partner in Chris Smit. I’ve attended a workshop where Chris explained and taught us all we needed to know to more effectively work with our international clients.

If you’re working internationally, work with Chris. He can save you time and money by letting you do your business better.”
