“Ms Wu, thank you so much for such an attention-grabbing one-day seminar on Negotiating Across Culture.  I was amazed by your capability to integrate so smoothly into the seminar your knowledge in business, history, philosophy, linguistics and sports.  I have gained a better understanding of different negotiation styles, and can apply what I learned in my negotiations with foreign companies and develop more appropriate negotiation strategies and tactics.  This is a highly practical and interactive program which I would recommend to anyone engaging in international business, particularly those that are doing business or ready to do business with Asia Pacific countries.”

Jacqueline is one of the most graceful speakers I have met.  She motivates with grace and commands dignity as she speaks to the audience.  I got an opportunity to hear her speech "The Bound and the Free"...  I was amazed at the way Jacqueline took the audience through a roller coaster ride of highs and lows…  I do not think the audience will ever forget the story and the message conveyed.  I look forward to hearing her speak again.”

“Hi Jacqueline, I want to thank you for your excellent presentation to our club.  You brought a very interesting and new perspective to the issue of working and living with other cultures.  Several of our Rotary members do business in other countries so your presentation was particularly valuable to them.  I think that your message stressing the importance of understanding other cultures was very timely for everyone as we continue to become so much more global in all aspects of our life not just professionally.  Once again, thank you for your stimulating presentation!
