Recent speakers helped us to develop professional skills such as:
- how to use LinkedIn effectively to make very targeted professional connections
- how to tell our stories to the media

Red Lion Hotel Bellevue

Bellevue Business Professional Women welcomes our May luncheon panelists Dilek Anderson, Leyla Mamina, Sherry Tang,
Isabelle Zanchetta, and Estrella Chan to share their knowledge in a Q&A session on :How to Connect with Friends of all cultures.
Have you ever wondered if you approached a new acquaintance properly who came from another culture? Do you shake hands? How firmly? How much eye contact to have?
What are appropriate topics to talk about? To what depth? Do you keep asking questions?
How do you courteously ask that person to repeat what they say if you do not understand their English the first time?
How do you say goodbye that feels welcoming for your next interaction? Etc. etc.
This is a rare opportunity for you to bring your questions to this Q&A panel on May 15th and have
them answered by a local from Turkiye (also known as Turkey), Russia, France, mainland China, and Hong Kong.
You are encouraged to send in your questions for the panel before the meeting to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You are always welcome to bring them on that day.
Dilek Anderson is an attorney in Turkiye. Leyla Mamina is a psychologist in Russia.
Sherry Tang is an orthodontist in China, also the Deputy Director of Shanghai Stomatological Disease Center. Isabelle
Zanchetta is an engineer and teacher in France. Estrella Chan is an English coach helping international
professionals quickly increase their English fluency and in connecting to their new community.
