“When one is doing business or interacting with small business owners from another culture, communication styles vary. We are no longer doing business with the same culture and the same generations – we are doing business with many different cultures, generations, and forms of communications. The awareness of these key components is the key to future continued success!” said Lourdes Sampera Tsukada, Conference Chair and founder of Opening Latino Doors.
