I want you to know what a 'hit' your presentation was. The feedback I received used words such as 'dynamic, outstanding, incredible and first-rate.' Everyone agreed that you focused your presentation to meld perfectly with the theme of the conference. If there was a complaint it was that people wished the workshop was even longer than one hour - a complaint I'll take any day! I think we presented an important program - one that people are still talking about. Your participation helped to ensure that our conference was a big success!

We Exist to deliver Value to You

Our Difference

Three core strengths differentiate us in the area of cross-cultural training and coaching
1- Breadth and Depth of Knowledge and Experience
  • HIA is a boutique company, recognized as a leader in the field of cross-cultural training and coaching.
  • Sheida Hodge has over 27 years of global business experience, and personally conducts many of the programs, actively participates in needs analysis and personally organizes each program to ensure actionable results for clients.
  • Sheida Hodge started her first cross-cultural training company in 1991, and performed pioneering work in this area by researching and teaching cross-cultural communication and negotiation courses at Thunderbird and the UCLA executive education programs.
  • Sheida Hodge was the Managing Director of Berlitz Cultural Consulting Division for close to five years, where she gained valuable experience in directing and managing thousands of training programs worldwide.
2- Continuous Research: Keeping Up With the Know How Leading to Global Success
  • Cross-cultural training programs are a core competency at HIA, differing from many companies that have added cross-cultural training as an ancillary service.
  • At HIA, each training is personally customized, and trainers are chosen based on fit and experience as it relates to the client - we never process through a central dispatching service which could lead to a hit or miss delivery of services.
3- Practical Training and Coaching Tied to Achieving Business Objectives
  • Whereas some other companies merely aim to create sensitivity about differences in etiquette and discuss theoretical cultural values, HIA programs go several steps further to show practical business implications - enabling participants to take the tools they have learned, and use them at work to get immediate and tangible results.
  • HIA hires only the most experienced trainers to address specific business issues - our programs are always substantive and never superficial.

We work with you only in the area of our expertise and
will guarantee our work.
