Kari Heistad

As founder and CEO of Culture Coach International, Kari leads a diverse team of cross cultural specialists who provide consulting and training services in the areas of cross cultural and diversity issues. Diversity has been the hallmark of her work and her experiences have brought her into contact with world leaders, inner-city youth, non-profit organizations and business people. She specializes in making the issues of cross cultural awareness and organizational development engaging and insightful to her clients.

Her original programs on cultural and corporate identity have been called “insightful, unique, exciting” and “eye-opening”. Her powerful approach makes these issues accessible and the skills gained become powerful tools in the workplace. Kari has lived and worked abroad in Norway, Scotland and Greece and she travels regularly overseas. She is a frequent author and public speaker at regional and international conferences. She was a Fulbright scholar to New Zealand and holds a Masters in International Administration from the School for International Training.
