Coca-Cola | Speaker

Coca-Cola is more than a client to me. Their employees exist in a corporate culture that has contributed to my journey in an unforgettable way. By funding the delivery of the specific training we are about to use as a case study below, our friends at Coca-Cola made it possible for young Misato Oi to travel alongside me for three weeks on my US State Department sponsored-speaking tour in Japan last year (read more here ) on behalf of Ambassador Caroline Kennedy.

The diplomatic speech I had been hired to give in five different Japanese cities was entitled, “Women’s Empowerment: From a Global Female Entrepreneur’s Perspective.” Incorporating Misato’s fresh perspective alongside that of mine made a big difference in helping young Japanese women understand how American entrepreneurial ideals translated into the current Japanese culture and political climate. By the time Misato and I facilitated this training at the Coca-Cola Japan headquarters on September 18th, we had completed our US Embassy speeches with flying colors. Thanks Coca-Cola for making that journey possible…
