Our dinner meetings are held the third Thursday of January-May and August-October (eight per year)

Our March speaker is going to be Dr. Michael A. (Mike) Moodian. He has served as a faculty member in various capacities for Chapman University since 2007. Mike is the editor of a graduate textbook titled “Contemporary Leadership and Intercultural Competence” (Sage, 2009). This volume examines the application of cultural comprehension to organizations and the measurement of intercultural competence. The book has quickly become widely used in graduate and undergraduate classes around the world, and it is cited by the Association of American Colleges & Universities in establishing national learning standards. Mike holds a doctorate degree in education from Pepperdine University and a master’s degree in communications from California State University, Fullerton.

The meeting topic will be “Effective Cross-Cultural Negotiations

The art of negotiating successfully in the supply management sector can vary significantly across cultures. This talk will cover how cultural influences might impact one’s negotiation; various countries’ cross-cultural behaviors, languages, and negotiation styles; how nonverbal communication plays a role; when, where, who, and what to negotiate; haggling and its affect on negotiations; and the do’s and don’ts of cross-cultural negotiations.
